Frank Vogel's job in jeopardy, nearly fired after Lakers loss to Nuggets

Frank Vogel's job in jeopardy, nearly fired after Lakers loss to Nuggets

By the time the Lakers and Jazz tipped off on Monday night, sources said, [Frank] Vogel was coaching for his job after he narrowly avoided being fired in the wake of the 37-point loss in Denver 48 hours earlier. Had a scene like that repeated itself against the Jazz, many believed it would have been Vogel’s last game.

ANALYSIS: Vogel was given a one-season contract extension last summer. He has been the coach in L.A. for three seasons, leading the Lakers to an NBA title in 2019-20, and has compiled a 116-71 record with the team in that span. However, the Lakers have floundered this season relative to expectations and are 22-22 just past the halfway mark.
