There are no good days Los Angeles Lakers into the NBA. The purple and yellow Francis, after 10 matches, scores 4-6 losses, with many complications in the closure and with more doubts than certainties. Luke Walton he seems to be embarrassed, because the situation is obvious: they fail to make decisions at key moments and denote deconcentration, even happens LeBron James.
Lakers they have a very young rotation: Brandon Ingram with 21 years, and Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart (23), Kyle Kuzma (23), and Lance Stephenson (28), Javale McGee (30), Rajon Rondo LeBron James (33).
Of these, only the last three have experience in definitive cases of Play Offs and they took the coveted ring. Even the first four did not play in the post-season, despite being more than one season in the NBA.
Last quarter, LeBron James's nightmare
The team led by Luke Walton, in these first 10 games, came with the advantage in the last quarter in five opportunities and disadvantage in five other. This causes many suspicions about those occasions when he reached the marker area in the decisive district. Let's look at the small edges of the last time.
So they got to the last room

The party liquidated at the end of the third quarter, by the big difference.
As you can see, they only managed to turn the score into one of the five times they entered, they lost to the last quarter and, worse, the result went out of hand in the last few moments, Spurs (both times) and Timberwolves.
Concentration or lack of hierarchy?
Robert Weinberg and Daniel Gould invented the following definition of concentration: "the ability to maintain focus on relevant environmental signals." Also, Gonzáles Portales has determined that attention is determined by "intense concentration of awareness on an object, characterized by intensity and limitation of attention". I can not Lakers.
LeBron James he is a player who won everything in basketball: Olympic gold medalist, multi-champion in the NBA, distinguished as MVP both in regular season and in the final on several occasions; In short, he is ready for key moments.
However, he is surrounded by a team that does not have the same competitive features: they were not exposed despite being on a large market Los Angeles. Also, attention was not given them, they were never "forced" to win, as if they were LeBron James because he stepped on the NBA.
Clutch moments are negative because the players in the clutch Lakers They do not keep their attention throughout the game. At a great level, like the NBA, the details get to win the games.
This is also the task Luke Walton, a strategist who has not yet become a mentor or enjoys the status of a Gregg Popovici so that they do not get involved in attention / concentration issues.
Finally, attention to stimuli. In the final moments, rivals have always been more attentive to the ball, cuts, screens than youngsters Lakers. Also for pleasant emotions and to put aside unpleasant, as is often the case with Rajon Rondo.
Does that mean they can not succeed? It's not final, it's a new team, commissioned by a player with the so-called "winning gene" LeBron James. However, the Western conference forces us to do everything we can, physically and mentally, in 48 minutes, not just for 40 or 42 minutes. Human material has, but we have to work hard.
