The Los Angeles Lakers have been struggling all season long, but they have been able to finally establish an identity and trend in the right direction by winning six of their last 7 games with a current 3-game winning streak they are looking to increase tonight when they face the Golden State Warriors.

The problem is, that they will be missing their best player LeBron James, and depending on how the rest of the injured players behave they could have up to 6 players missing to make things worse, the NBA had a break because of the All-Star and could have affected the team's momentum.

Because of the break, at Wednesday's practice, Austin Reaves spoke on what it meant to the team about having some time away to rest and get back on track after the heavy schedule they had before the All-Star Weekend.

"A little time away amid a long season is good for everybody and hopefully we can pick back up where we left off." Said Austin Reaves in the post-practice presser. Reaves is one of the team's starters and leaders who will have to bring their best game in tonight's game against the Warriors if they want to continue on the winning path.
