After winning three straight, including a big win in San Antonio versus the defending NBA Champion Spurs, the Los Angeles Lakers continued their maddening inconsistency, losing the final three games of the week, including a tough Sunday night loss at Sacramento versus the Kings. The loss to the Kings followed a tough one-point loss at home versus the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Week Recap: The Lakers kicked off the week with a disappointing home loss to the struggling Indiana Pacers, 110-91. The Lakers fell behind 34-15 in the first quarter and were never really in the game as the Pacers, who entered with a worse record than the Lakers, completely dominated the game. After winning three straight entering the game, the Lakers inconsistent play surfaced once again. The Lakers were dominated on the boards by Indiana, a statistic that led to a dominating interior advantage for the Pacers. Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 26 points but made just 8 of 26 shots. At one point the Pacers held a 39 points first-half lead in one of the more embarrassing home performances for Los Angeles in recent years. After the tough loss to Indiana on Monday night the Lakers had three days to rest before hosting the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night. The Thunder was without Kevin Durant, who missed the game. The Lakers lost 104-103 when Kobe Bryant missed the final shot, part of a 3 for 15 shooting night. Ed Davis had 18 points and 9 rebounds for the Lakers, with Ronnie Price chipping in 11 points. The Lakers had Saturday night off to regroup before they made the trip north to Sacramento on Sunday night. The Lakers dropped their third straight behind another tough game for Kobe Bryant. The Lakers veteran, who missed most of the last season due to injury, shot just 8 for 30 and turned the ball over nine times. Kobe Bryant’s poor performance has led to renewed calls for head coach Byron Scott to find more rest for Bryant, who has played major minutes this season at an advanced age and coming off of injury.
