Luke Said It, So I Don't Have To

"We outplay the better teams right now, but we're getting outplayed by the teams that aren't as good," Lakers forward Luke Walton said. "Sometimes, we just end up winning at the end, but this is too good of a league and too long of a season to get a high playoff seed if we keep playing like that."

Beat Dallas, and lose to Memphis, that ain't right. If every team played a zone defense, the Lakers would be 11 games below .500 instead of 11 games above.

Luckily, most teams don't practice it, and they can't put it in just for one team that can't seem to figure out how to fight for inside shots when their opponents deploy a zone.
