Los Angeles Lakers have been struggling this season, especially with coach Darvin Ham making several mistakes, one of them being his constant changes in the starting lineup and giving a bigger role to Taurean Prince than other players.

But that changed as Rui Hachimura is now the starter over Prince, with continuity being part of the team. The Lakers are now trending in the right direction winning six games of their last seven, but even before that.

The Squad leads the league in assists over the last 15 games. This comes to show that this team always had a good offense. Just had to find the right lineups. Took Ham a little too long but it's here to stay now unless the head coach decides otherwise.

Anthony Davis and LeBron James have been vocal on the team finally establishing an identity and loving the starting lineup with Rui Hachimura which has helped to improve their offensive game since the get-go.

Injuries have affected the Los Angeles Lakers during the season

"The most important thing for me is definitely my health, where I'm at right now, where our team is leaning," LeBron James said at the All-Star presser. "We're trending in the right direction. "Obviously, with our Laker team, it's been about health all year. Trying to do what's best for me for the betterment of the team."
