Except without Lonzo they've played their worst stretch of basketball and they look completely lost on both ends without him. Lonzo is ranked 4th in defensive RAPM among all point guards this season and is also 8th in assists per game.

last 6 games before injury: 16/7/7 44% shooting 45% from 3 during their toughest stretch the entire year, scoring in double-digits in all of them . He's adjusted and found his strengths/weaknesses and knows what he can do to be effective on this level, his all-around game is much better than anyone else's from this NBA Draft.
