The Lakers need more production off the bench, but it’s rough right now with Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Pau Gasol hurting as some of those bench guys are starting now. Power forward Antawn Jamison has started 4 games so far this year as he has replaced Pau Gasol in the starting lineup. Jamison is averaging 20.5 minutes, 8.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game so far this year. Jodie Meeks has been a little off with his shot this year as he is only hitting 38.9% from the floor and 41.7% from three point range so far this year, and that’s just not going o get it done. He is averaging 14.7 minutes, 6.8 points, 1.5 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game so far this year. PF/C Jordan Hill is doing a solid job this year as he is averaging 15.5 minutes, 6.3 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game so far this year. Point guard Darius Morris started 10 games at point guard for the Lakers this year, but he couldn’t hold the job. He is averaging 20.3 minutes, 4.9 points, 1.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. He is only shooting 34% from the floor, 40.6% from three point range and 56.5% from the free throw line so far and that is pathetic for a guard. Point guard Chris Duhon has went into the starting lineup lately (he has started 4 games so far this year) and he is looking pretty good. He is averaging 22.6 minutes, 4.4 points, 2.1 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game. Duhon is also shooting an amazing 48.6% from three point range so far this year, which is outstanding. The Lakers hope that Duhon can keep up the good work until Steve Nash is ready to return to the starting lineup.
