Kobe Bryant would like to see the Los Angeles Lakers play the Washington Generals next.
That won't happen but they will instead see the league's worst team that hails from the nation's capital.
The struggling Lakers have been defenseless during a four-game losing streak heading into Friday night's road matchup with the Washington Wizards.
The Lakers (9-14) fell 116-107 at New York on Thursday, allowing the Knicks to shoot 53.2 percent for the third-highest mark against them. They yielded 68 first-half points, and have given up an average of 62.3 during this slide.
"We are having a re-occurring theme that the first quarter is just not good, and then the first half is not great and in the second half we seem to turn it on, and we need to solve that problem real quick," coach Mike D'Antoni said.
Bryant scored 31 points and leads the NBA with 29.3 per game, but Los Angeles fell to 1-11 when he scores at least 30. The Lakers are trying to avoid their first five-game skid in two seas...
