Default Lakers awful at free throws so far this season

Forget Hack a Dwight.

Opposing teams may just want to adopt this strategy to win games: Hack the Lakers.

The Lakers rank 29th out of 30 NBA teams in free-throw shooting at 66.8 percent. In four of the Lakers' eight losses, the margin between made and missed free throws exceeded the point differential between winning and losing. Among the worst Lakers players to send to the free-throw line include Dwight Howard (47.8 percent), Morris (56.5 percent), Jordan Hill (61.5 percent) and Antawn Jamison (63.2 percent).

"Stop talking about it. I don't want to hear about it," Howard said after going 3 of 12 from the line in the Lakers' 79-77 loss Tuesday to the Indiana Pacers. "That's my problem, thinking too much at the line."

Its funny that its become a league wide joke that our free throws suck. This is pathetic. The most talented team in the NBA, can't make free throws, possibly the simplest, unguarded shot.

Dwight doesn't want to think about it? You know what Dwight, you SHOULD think about it. Your free throws aren't going to start falling from utterly downplaying the issue. You suck at free throws. Your achilles heel, as well as the rest of the team's is going to cost us important games, and "easy wins".

This is THE most maddening thing about this season so far. EVERY game we have shot poorly seems to have been a close loss. Just...disgusting.
