Finally guys finally! we get a win after the 5 game losing streak! Last night the Lakers won 111 to 106 vs the Kings which was close throughout until the 3rd quarter where Kyle Kuzma went off for 21 of his 29 points. At halftime the score was 49-48. Then at the end of the 3rd quarter it was 87-77 Lakers. Who would have guessed the Lakers started to blow the lead by giving up offensive rebounds and open threes to Buddy Heild who had 18 points and Bogdan Bogdanovic who had 17 points. All that matters is that we got the win to end the losing streak
My thoughts on the game: I’m gonna say this right off the bat. That is the best defense we have played since Lonzo Ball went out. We held De’Aaron Fox to 9 points on 3-16 shooting and Harrison Barnes to 10 points on 3-7 shooting. Lastly my guy Lebron James comes up in the clutch hitting 6-6 free throws in the 4th quarter. The team overall shot 20-24 (83.3%).
