The Lakers 5-game win streak has come to an end, as they lose to the Hawks 76-86.
Despite playing poor basketball for the first 24 minutes, they were able to make it a one point game at halftime. Unfortunately, they had another 3rd quarter meltdown and allowed the Hawks to shoot lights out from beyond the arc.
They tried to make a comeback in the 4th, but it was missed shot after miss shot. It’s not all that surprising to see Lamar not finish layups, but when Kobe and Fish are bricking wide open 3′s, you know it’s just not the Lakers night.
Not only that, it was another disappointing game from our bench. The only guy to show up was Luke who had 6 points.
Player of the Game: Pau since he was he was the consistent one on the night. He had 21 points on 70% and 11 rebounds.
Play of the Game: There weren’t many good plays, but that three Kobe drained to pull us within one right before half-time was huge.
What’s Up Next: The Lakers go to Charlotte to play the Bobcats. They always seem like our kryptonite, so hopefully we bring our A-game.
