Video: Josh Hart’s unexplained sequence for Lakers makes a case for Shaqtin’ A Fool
In the clip below, Hart was undecided if he was going for the layup or drop it off to his teammate Jonathan Williams. Instead, Hart ended up wildly throwing the ball into the crowd.

It has just been that type of a season for Josh Hart and the Lakers.
In their 115-101 loss to the Bucks (their fourth loss in a row), Hart had six points, three rebounds and two assists across 17 minutes. Though Hart started out strong this year, as the season progressed, the 24-year-old’s struggles became apparent.
He suffered several scoreless nights despite playing heavy minutes. Initially, he looked like the Lakers’ designated shooter from the 3-point country — hitting around one to three makes from downtown. But the Villanova product’s shooting touch suddenly disappeared. Various injuries might have hampered his road to consistency.
Perhaps the good thing for Hart is that the end of the regular season is just around the corner. Come summer, he will have ample time to receive treatment for his various injuries and also work on his game.
For the meantime, Hart needs to help the Purple and Gold sneak in a few more victories.
