Lakers Coach Commits To Starting Dual Point Guards For Future Games

Los Angeles Lakers' head coach Darvin Ham has announced that he will continue to start both D'Angelo Russell and Dennis Schroder, who are both point guards, in the foreseeable future.

Some fans have criticized this decision and suggested that Schroder lead the second unit off the bench.

However, there are advantages to starting both point guards, such as Schroder's ability to guard opposing point guards, which allows Russell to focus on his offense.

Russell's catch-and-shoot ability can help fortify the Lakers' half-court offense.

Starting Schroder alongside Russell also allows the team to push the pace consistently and take some of the load off LeBron James.

Ham has previously faced criticism for his use of three or even four-guard lineups, but with the roster changes, most of the guards in such lineups will now be at least 6-foot-4 in height.

Schroder had a strong performance in the Lakers' recent game against the Golden State Warriors, scoring 26 points and attempting 11 free throws.

In the previous game against the Milwaukee Bucks, he recorded 25 points, 12 assists, and no turnovers.
