The Lakers secured a 116-95 over Oklahoma Thunders in their last away match on December 11 and it was their third win in their last four games on the road.
"You know it's easy to just say, 'Hey, you guys are not playing hard enough,' you know? But the reality is you have to be direct and precise in terms of what you're talking about," Lakers coach Frank Vogel said after their win over Thunders.
"You guys are not running the floor hard enough. You're not sprinting back in transition hard enough. You're not crashing the glass hard enough. You're not screening and getting out of screens fast enough. You're not cutting. 
"All these things that just fall in the bucket of effort and playing harder than your opponent, you've got to be precise with those things. You've got to coach those things hard. And that's what we're doing with our group. We're making progress."
