Los Angeles Lakers (10-11) — Sacramento Kings (8-12) 137: 141 3ot (Box score)
What a madness in the Staples Center! For the first time this season, it took three extensions until a winner was found. The longer breathing had the guests from Sacramento, whose three Guards de’Aaron Fox (34, 15/32 FG, 8 Assists), Buddy Held (25, 8/21 FG) and Tyree Haliburton (19, 9 Assists) generated enough openness. For the Lakers, after four successful extensions this season, it was the first bankruptcy to OT.
In the third overtime, the Kings laid an 11: 2 run, which gave them a 7-point leadership and thus something like preliminary decision. Marvin Bailey (13, 5/5 FG, 7 rebounds) also had good moments with 5 points. The Lakers came once more on 3 meters Ran, but Held kept the nerves from the line. A Clear Path Foul by Anthony Davis against Held at the 5 seconds at the clock was the final crude, after over three hours this game was finally over.
Previously, Held had forced a second extension with a wild litter over LeBron, but at the end of these, the Kings did not manage to get a litter in 24 seconds, which is why there was a third extension. But that did not play a role, the Kings were fresher, while the left of the Lakers was far too sluggish.
Los Angeles Lakers clearly inferior to the boards
LeBron James stood for the Lakers nearly 50 minutes on the field and looked very tired in the extra minutes most of the time and did not make it to Bailey or Alex Len for Mismatches against Bailey or Alex Len. In the end, 30 points (10/25 FG, 2/13 threesome, 8/11 FT), 7 rebounds and 10 assists were noted. Russell Westbrook booked with 29 points (10/18 FG), 10 rebounds and 11 assists a triple-double, Davis (23, 9/22 FG, 4 blocks) stayed as James over long stretch pale.
The Lakers could first produce a pad in the third quarter. This happened when LeBron went to the bench. Malik Monk headed a 16: 2 course of the hosts, later the lead with James grew to 13 meters, as they were ten minutes to play and everything seemed to go his expected gear. Sacramento fought back with its own 8: 0-Run again and rang the wild final phase.
