EL SEGUNDO — Following the Lakers’ 113-95 loss to the Jazz on Friday night, center JaVale McGee expressed frustration with Los Angeles’ failure to adjust on defense to Utah’s pick-and-roll attack.
Countless times, Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell and center Rudy Gobert burned the Lakers, who used a deep drop to defend the pick-and-roll.
“They were definitely just exploiting the pick-and-roll. I feel like they were getting too deep,” McGee said Friday. “Maybe we should have changed our coverage from a drop to get up a little more, but we didn’t.”
