Lakers credit improved defense for streak

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The 2014-15 Los Angeles Lakers are in unfamiliar territory. Not only are they riding a surprising three-game win streak, but perhaps more impressive, they’re doing so because of their defense, which has been a historic weakness at times this season. “We’re just changing out defense a lot,” coach Byron Scott said at practice Saturday. “We’re going to our full-court press, we’re going to our zone, we’re going to our man.

The future is now for Clarkson, Lakers

LOS ANGELES -- Jordan Clarkson is listed at 185 pounds, which is super nice of whoever comes up these sort of things. On the court against the spidery Michael Carter-Williams on Friday, it looked as though the Bucks point guard could wrap his 6-foot-8 wingspan around the Lakers guard and touch his own shoulders. Among a particularly hairy starting lineup of Carlos Boozer, Wayne Ellington, Ryan Kelly and Robert Sacre, the just-about-baby-faced rookie seemed no more than half of his 22 years.

Lakers 101, Bucks 93: Three straight wins

LOS ANGELES -- Big Game Wayne Ellington? After missing all six of his attempts from the field through the first three quarters, the journeyman guard came alive in the fourth, shooting 6-for-7 and scoring all 14 of his points to rally the Los Angeles Lakers past the Milwaukee Bucks, 101-93, at Staples Center. The victory is the third in a row for the 16-41 Lakers, who have strung together three consecutive wins one other time this season and two or more wins in a row just four other times.

Preview: Lakers vs. Milwaukee Bucks

The Lakers (15-41) will try to keep their winning streak alive on Friday night at Staples Center, hosting the Milwaukee Bucks (32-25).
