Lakers can't capitalize

It seemed like a perfect opportunity, maybe too perfect. The Detroit Pistons were on a 3 game losing streak, finishing off their longest road trip of the season, 2 of their starters were out due to injuries (J. Leuer & K. Caldwell-Pope), they hadn't been able to beat the Lakers at the Staples Center since November 14, 2008. It was the perfect opportunity they weren't able to capitalize on. Los Angeles lost 102-97. D'Angelo Russell was the only Purple & Gold starter that scored in double...See More

Lakers can't stop DeAndre

DeAndre Jordan was a force in the paint against the young forwards he was facing, going off for 24 points and 21 rebounds in the Clippers win over the Lakers 113-97 in another "Battle for L.A.". D.J. went 12 for 13 from the field, missing the only free throw he shot. After the game, Luke Walton admitted he should've made Jordan earn his points from the free throw line instead. Chris Paul also had a double-double for the Clippers, adding 20 points and 13 rebounds. This was the third...See More

Lakers manhandled in San Antonio

It was just a matter of time. That's how we all felt about this game. Los Angeles was hanging in there during the first quarter, during the first 7 minutes of the second quarter ... then the Spurs caught fire and that was the end of it. Kawhi Leonard was unstoppable the 26 minutes he was on the court, dropping 31 points to lead San Antonio to an overwhelming victory at home by a final score of 134-94. Former Laker Pau Gasol shined with 22 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists. The Lake-show...See More

Lakers can't sweep homestand

Tuesday night at the Staples Center the Lakers were in a hard fought battle with the Trailblazers ... for 2 and a half quarters. A close game turned out to be a blowout at the end of the 4th quarter with Portland getting the win 108-87, defeating Los Angeles for a 10th straight time. An awful second half for the Purple and Gold in which they only scored 30 points ended up being the difference. Now it's time to get back on the road to face the tough as nails San Antonio Spurs on Thursday.

Back to back W's? Yes!

Can barely remember the last time the Lakers won consecutive games? Well, maybe it had been almost 2 months since they had done it until Sunday night when they defeated the Orlando Magic 111-95 to earn back to back wins for the first time since November 12th, 2016. Los Angeles' young bucks 1st round picks for the last 3 years were the key for this victory. Julius Randle continues racking up the stat sheet: 19 points, 9 rebounds & 5 assists. D'Angelo Russell's night wasn't too shabby: 17...See More

Convincing win for the Lake-Show

The Los Angeles Lakers showed what they can do when they have a hot hand on the court, they went 50% from the floor to defeat the Miami Heat 127-100. Goran Dragic and Jordan Clarkson got ejected in the 3rd quarter, hurting the Heat quite a bit more because Jordan didn't score a single point in his 10 minutes as a sub, while Goran was a starter and in 22 minutes he drained 16 points. Luol Deng and D'Angelo Russell scored 19 points each, with Deng adding 14 rebounds for a double-double. 6...See More

Portland blazes away in the 4th

A game that the Lakers felt they should've won ended up being their 5th straigh road loss as Portland defeated them 118-109. Los Angeles dominated when Damian Lillard was on the bench, taking double digit leads and looking like a way better team on the court. But when Lillard subbed back in, different story. The talented All-Star point guard had a 21 point, 10 assist double-double ... but still wasn't the team leader, that role was played on Thursday night by C.J. McCollum who made his...See More

Lakers close homestand with win

2 wins out of 5 straight games at the Staples Center isn't what the Lakers had in mind, but they'll take it. The Lake-show was hot handed / cold blooded from 3 point land on Tuesday night on their way to defeat the Memphis Grizzlies by a final score of 116-102. Nick Young & D'Angelo Russell hit 6 shots each behind the 3 point arch, Jordan Clarkson added 3 more coming off the bench, as they had their season-high 17 triples as a team. Young led L.A. with 20 points, but Julius Randle...See More

Free fall continues

A 9-0 run to start the 4th quarter was all that the Raptors needed to take a double digit lead against the Lakers and never look back. Toronto got the win at the Staples Center by a final score of 123-114. In the first 3 quarters of the game Kyle Lowry scored 21 points, in the final frame he went off for 20 to finish with a team leading 41. He filled up the stat sheet by adding 9 rebounds and 7 assists. After starting the season in promising fashion, this was the Lake-show's 15th defeat in...See More
