The Clippers ended up topping the Lakers by a score of 118-107. Lou Williams was the leading scorer for the team. He dropped 36 points with seven rebounds and three assists while shooting 11-of-18 from the field. The only other Clippers in double-digits were Danilo Gallinari with 19 and Montrezl Harrell with 12.
The Lakers ended up having five players in double-digit scoring, but they weren’t enough. Kyle Kuzma had 24 points, eight rebounds, and five assists. He also shot 9-of-21 from the field. Lonzo Ball had 19 points, five rebounds, and six assists. Brandon Ingram had 17 points, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had 14 points, and Josh Hart contributed 12 points.
The Lakers missed 19 three-pointers on the evening and struggled to hold onto the ball, leading the game with 17 turnovers. The team very much missed their superstar forward LeBron James. He’s out with a grade three groin strain and is day-to-day. It’s unknown how soon he may return. Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball will have to lead the team in his absence.
