It’s a strange time to be a Lakers fan.
On one hand, you’ve got a nice rookie in Jordan Clarkson who finished with 26 points, six rebounds and 11 assists in a win over the Sixers — one in which he hit the game-winner after an incredible pass from Wayne Ellington.
On the other, every win — especially against fellow bottom-feeders like the Sixers — inches the Lakers closer to potentially losing their lottery pick in this summer’s draft.
