Lakers’ Luke Walton wants team to make 300 passes a game

first_imgWalton estimated the Lakers made 259 passes in Sunday’s loss to Minnesota. He attributed that to one-on-one play stemmed from fatigue for playing three road games in four nights. Nonetheless, Walton has mostly liked the team’s ball movement and pace. “That’s a good baseline of how we want to play and if we’re playing unselfish or not,” Walton said. “Once we play better and are more familiar with the plays and each other, as a staff and players, those goals will be more specific. Now we want to make sure that ball’s moving.”Players offered mix assessments on how much the Lakers coaching staff have preached that number. Clarkson said Walton has addressed the number “a lot,” while others have just sensed the progress from their own performance.“Throughout the game, we don’t really think about it,” Lakers guard D’Angelo Russell said. “But we can tell when the ball is flowing and when it’s not.” Catching onThe moment went viral as soon as Russell held out his forearm. Amid his career-high 39-points against Brooklyn on March 1 during his rookie season, Russell pointed to his forearm and mentioned he had “ice in my veins.”Soon enough, numerous Lakers fans have posted videos of themselves performing the gesture. Russell found the reaction “funny” and “wild.”“That really blew up,” Russell said. “I didn’t think it would. But I’m running with it. I’m looking forward toward making ‘Ice in my veins’ moments.” “Just the system,” Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson said. “We’re all having fun and we want to see each other do well. There’s a lot of balance on this team. We got a lot of guys scoring in double figures. It could be anybody’s night. So we’re trying to find a hot hand.”Why did the Lakers fail to hit the hot hand consistently last season?“We got a new system put in place,” Clarkson said, pausing before walking away. He clarified afterwards that he simply lost his train of thought. Lakers forward Julius Randle finished Clarkson’s answer. “We see that it works,” Randle said. “That’s really the difference. We see it and I think it’s contagious.” Not contagious enough, though. After shifting from an assistant coach of a contender to the head coach of a rebuilding team, Luke Walton has already managed to bring something from Golden State to the Lakers.No, it’s not Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson or Draymond Green. Instead, Walton has stressed pass or fail after Warriors coach Steve Kerr preached the same thing“I know the scale is tilted with the team we had up there,” Walton said. “But most nights we had over 300, we had high assists and won a lot of ball games.”The Lakers entered Tuesday’s contest against Brooklyn at Staples Center averaging 286 passes per game. That marks an increase from the 281 passes the Lakers averaged last season during Kobe Bryant’s final year under Byron Scott’s offense that put less emphasis on 3-point shooting and analytics. center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
