When it comes to the Lakers' dismal defense, Johnson agrees with D'Antoni and Bryant.
"We can score points but the defense is breaking down," he said. "We have to correct our defense. Every night guys have to come with passion and urgency."
Johnson said he thinks that once Gasol starts playing well, the Lakers will follow suit with Nash's help.
"This is one of the most challenging stretches of my 17 years, and the most baffling, too," a puzzled Bryant said after losing to the Cavs. "We have the talent and personnel to do it, but we're not, and it's baffling. It's extremely frustrating.
"It doesn't make any sense. We're still finding ways to lose games."
