Talk about a game of runs. Lakers blew it open several times but the Clippers kept coming back. Luckily, the better Los Angeles team got the last laugh as the Lakers pulled away for a 88-85 victory Sunday night.
Both teams put up a dismal third quarter as the total points scored by both teams combined was only 26.
The Lakers MUST start playing better basketball because this is looking terrible. The Lakers are taking poor shots and not moving the ball like they were earlier on in the season.
Only three Lakers hit double figures tonight as the Lakers shot 42% from the field.
The plus tonight was holding the Clippers to only 37% field goals.
Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker Performers –
1) Lamar took some threes that he shouldn’t have, but still put up 18 and 10 on 6-10 shooting.
2) Pau put up 14 and 9 tonight. Not good for a number 2 option, but no one really stepped up.
3) Luke did a bit of everything tonight. Didn’t hurt us and had 6 points with 3 assists.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Fisher had 3 points and missed a clutch free throw.
Play of the Game: Sadly, Ariza’s solid defense at the final possession against Baron.
What to Look for Next Game: Anything better than tonight as they battle Sacramento Tuesday night.
