The Lakers lost to the Pacers 98-96 on Sunday, which was the 11th consecutive game where they failed to score at least 100 points. It is their worst streak since doing it 12 times during the 03-04 season.
"We've had a loaded schedule here to start, so hopefully that had something to do with our poor shooting," said Kobe Bryant. "I think some of the guys just need time off just to get their legs back."
Pau Gasol only scored eight points, the second time he has done so in four games.
"I did notice that he's out on the floor ... a lot further away from the basket," said former Lakers assistant coach Brian Shaw, who returned as a member of the Indiana coaching staff.
"If you have the two big guys, that's always been the strength of this team. You want your biggest guys closest to the basket. Sometimes Pau is out around the three-point line, so I think maybe it's just going to take him a little time to get adjusted to the new places he is on the floor."
