No LeBron James on Friday, but as Darvin Ham noted, this was a very winnable game, anyway. Well, that didn't stop the Lakers from losing! 120-114 was the final against Sacramento. The Lakers fall now to 2-10, and with Brooklyn coming to town on Sunday and LeBron potentially missing another game, the team is running out of time to right the ship and play their way back into the Western Conference playoff race. (Seems crazy to say that 12 games into the season, but they're 2-10, so it's not really crazy at all.)
Anthony Davis wasn't a factor in the fourth, but was it his fault? Sacramento overloaded hard on Davis, sending two or three defenders at the slightest hint he'd catch the ball, and the Lakers simply had no counter. Meanwhile, DeAaron Fox went off for the Kings, having his way against multiple Lakers defenders and picking up critical buckets down the stretch.
The Lakers closed the first half horribly, then blew a lead late in the second. This one, LeBron or not, needed to be in the win column. Arguably the worst loss of the season, and there already are 10 to choose from.
HOSTS: Andy and Brian Kamenetzky
