The game was tied at 83-83 with 7 minutes left in the fourth quarter. Then the Lakers looked like a tired team on the second night of a back-to-back. They got lazy on defense. They turned the ball over then didn’t get back in transition and gave up easy buckets. They shot just two more shots at the rim (one a Bynum putback on an offensive rebound that he missed) but settled for five three pointers.
The Clippers, behind the good Baron Davis (which makes them a dangerous team) beat the Lakers. If you are looking for analysis of this game, I think Bill Bridges summed it up in the comments.
Next is Portland at the Rose Garden. That’s one we’d all like to win.
