Luke Walton: Lakers who shoot 3-pointers have to make 100 in practice

The Los Angeles Lakers are 6-9 on the season, and are last in the NBA in terms of made 3-pointers per-game.

But wait, it gets worse!

LA is also shooting just 28.8 percent from 3-point range this season, a six point drop from a year ago.

And thus, coach Luke Walton has decided to make some changes.

Via Twitter:

I mean, this says a lot about the Lakers and where they’re at. Not far from anyone’s mind is the fact that Lonzo Ball has been struggling as of late, averaging 9 points, 6.9 assists, and 1.3 steals per-game while shooting 23 percent from 3-point land. Ball shot 41.2 percent from beyond the arc at UCLA.

Meanwhile, the rest of the squad is struggling and Walton’s handcuffing of practice to game allowance feels a bit … junior for the NBA. This is a young team to be sure, but hopefully for fans in LA it will help encourage more relatable gym habits for the Lakers roster.
