The Lakers have had it quite rough the past few weeks, and were looking to snag a tough road win vs. the best team in the NBA, the Milwaukee Bucks. This game was primarily focused on the clash clash of two of the most dominant players the NBA has ever seen.
But instead of this must-see matchup between Lebron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo, who were both All-Star captains, Lakers fans got to see Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who stepped into the game off the bench. He scored a phenomenal 35 points, being the second-best scoring game of his career. He also shot 12/20 and 8/14 on three-pointers.
Although KCP had the game’s hottest hands, the Lakers could not keep up with the Bucks, losing 115-101.
