The Los Angeles Lakers’ second head-to-head meeting with the Oklahoma City Thunder was about as unsuccessful as the first round as the Lakers fell 114-90 in front of the Oklahoma City crowd on Wednesday night.
The Lakers were without Kentavious Caldwell-Pope after he went down with a right achilles tendon strain in the first half, and Lonzo Ball was neither present on the court, nor the bench for the Lakers. Los Angeles has also been unable to win a single game where Lonzo sat out of play. Julius Randle served as a powerful offensive force for the Lakers scoring all 16 of his points in the first two quarters, but only picked up one rebound and three assists to end the game.
The Lakers now move to 15-29 in the season and will look to snap a two-game losing streak as they host the Indiana Pacers on Friday at the Staples Center.
