The Los Angeles Lakers have not fared well in recent games, which has meant a dip in team strength compared to the other NBA teams.

Los Angeles fell below .500 after losing to the Boston Celtics but rebounded with a 17-point comeback win against the Detroit Pistons.

LeBron James made his return as well, but it’s been a rocky few games. His shotmaking was efficient against Boston, but he was ejected after a scuffle turned bloody against the Pistons.

The recent form for Los Angeles led to a drop in Rookie Wire’s latest NBA power rankings. L.A. came in at No. 15:

Last Rank: 14

LeBron James returned last week but didn’t make it through his second game back after his altercation with Pistons center Isaiah Stewart. The team will be hoping James will not face a suspension after his hit on Stewart as it has lost four of six.
