Markieff Morris shared his thoughts on the Los Angeles Lakers being on a four-game losing streak at the moment and dropping to 22-11.

Morris said this is a mental challenge for the defending champions and they should work hard to turn things around.

“It’s mental with us right now … it shouldn’t be easy. We need stuff like this to work on our weaknesses. You never win without having these types of (stretches) through the season,” Morris told reporters, via Mike Trudell of Spectrum Sportsnet.

Markieff Morris, who was a starter for the Lakers, had 12 points (5/10 shooting) and nine rebounds in 27 minutes of action in the 89-114 blowout loss to the Utah Jazz.
