Just when you thought the Los Angeles Lakers’ season couldn’t get any worse after their 140-111 rout on Sunday at the hands of the Phoenix Suns, things got worse.
On Monday, the Purple and Gold surrendered the first nine points of their game against the Toronto Raptors. From there, it was complete garbage time, as Toronto led by 21 at the end of the first quarter.
Other than a brief desperate run from LA late in the fourth quarter, this game was never the least bit competitive. Toronto seemed to be in God mode, while the Lakers seemed to be in “God why is this happening” mode.
Almost nothing went well for them, and the final score of 114-103 was not indicative of how truly humiliating the match was.
On Twitter, the NBA community, including Lakers fans, once again showed great disgust.
It’s a routine
• Lakers on a losing streak
• The Lakers win an unexpected game
• You gain hope
• You’re watching the Lakers’ next game hoping they’ll win
• They lose in the worst way possible
• Another depressing Laker Twitter space

The Lakers miss more layups than a JV tm. Flip the 🏀 like one too.

The fakers were 3-25 in the 1st quarter, totaling 12 points, a season low. Really, Bron?

Have you seen the Lakers with Lebron? Total trash! I thought he made his teammates better.

The best part of being a 2021-22 Los Angeles Lakers fan is that one day I’ll die and never have to think about them again

Just think you’re one of the Lakers who knows Lebron doesn’t run on defense and there he’s yelling at the whole team because he’s awful as a center and he’s not getting the ball back. They blame Westbrook when they are not cut out to win.
