Not the Lakers’ finest moment this season. Then again, they’re compiling quite a list of clunkers, aren’t they? The Lakers never led today after the opening minutes of the second quarter. Pau Gasol had a season-high 32 points and Kobe Bryant had 22 points on 8-for-24 shooting. Their reserves combined to score four points on 2-for-15 shooting. Overall, the Lakers shot 33 for 81 (40.7 percent). The Lakers missed a chance to clinch the best record in the Western Conference. They were within 74-71 early in the fourth quarter, then fell apart down the stretch.
