The weekend ended in disappointment for Los Angeles Lakers fans as the Lakers turned what looked like a nice win at home into a late game fiasco. The 96-93 loss to the Chicago Bulls was the team's fifth loss in six games.

One would hope that things improve as the team's understanding of the triangle offense evolves. In the meantime, Kwame Brown is hurt (hamstring). Devean George is sore (ankle). Luke Walton still hasn't played a game (hip, hamstring, etc). Chris Mihm recently had an MRI (ankle).

Bottom line . . . a team with minimal depth, struggling through injuries while trying to learn a complicated new system on the fly.

The schedule doesn't exactly let up either with eight of the next 12 games on the road including three sets of back to backs.

Perhaps the pre-season prediction of 41 wins was a little high?
