Markieff Morris opened up about how the mental and physical fatigue has affected the Los Angeles Lakers this season.

Morris and the Lakers had just 71 days to rest in the offseason and that has been a challenge for the players.

“This is the most basketball that I’ve ever played in my life — this season and last season combined. It’s an unbelievable amount of basketball we all are playing. Mentally it gets draining — especially when you lose,” Morris said, via Lakers Daily.

Morris and the Lakers managed to snap a four-game losing streak on Friday, when they defeated the Portland Trail Blazers (93-102).

The defending champions are third in the Western Conference with a 23-11 record.
