Effort is there for Lakers, but not result against Thunder

first_imgInstead, the Lakers coughed up a 15-point lead, committed 22 turnovers and went only 3 o 11 from the foul line in the fourth quarter. The Thunder went on a 15-3 run punctuted by former Lakers guard Derek Fisher hitting a 3-pointer to tie the game with 6:47 remaining. Kevin Durant also scored 18 of his 42 points in the fourth quarter.“The effort was terrific. They battled the whole game,” Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said. “We ran into a little rough spot there in the start of the fourth. But you have to give them credit. They got into us and we turned it over way too many times.”The Lakers (18-35) still had a fighting chance in the final moments. Lakers center Chris Kaman dazzled the crowd with a nifty spin move that drew a foul on Serge Ibaka before making a layup that cut the Thunder’s lead to 103-102 with 22 seconds left. But Kaman’s free throw hit off the rim. After Fisher hit two free throws to extend the lead to 105-102, Steve Blake could only convert on one of two foul attempts.“The one thing that is important is that players continue to play as hard as possible and compete in every game,” Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said before the game. “They’ve done that. After games when they do lose, the heads are down and they’re upset. There’ s no music playing or guys walking out of the locker room with hop in their step. It bothers them to lose. The important thing is they play hard, and they are.” The chasm between the championship-contending Oklahoma City Thunder and injury-plagued Lakers should’ve become more pronounced with each passing moment Thursday night.Kevin Durant should’ve dominated. The Thunder should’ve blown the Lakers off the court with their breakneck speed. The Lakers should’ve become fatigued with a dwindling roster. The Lakers should’ve displayed offensive and defensive ineptitude.Those elements didn’t emerge, but the result still stings.The Lakers’ 107-103 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder at Staples Center appeared surprisingly reachable and could’ve provided a feel-good moment entering the All-Star break during an otherwise depressing season. The Lakers (18-35) showed that determination against the Thunder (43-12) by showing some surprising developments. Durant, the NBA’s leading scorer, posted 43 points but needed 33 shots to get there. While Steve Nash sat out because of nerve irritation in his back, Kendall Marshall seamlessly started at point guard again and posted 14 points and 17 assists. In his second consecutive start at center, Kaman contributed with 19 points and 19 rebounds. After struggling with his shot all season, Wesley Johnson scored 19 points on a 8-of-13 clip. In what likely marks his last game as a Laker, Shawne Williams provided 15 points albeit on 6-of-16 shooting.“We’re past taking moral victories from losses,” said Williams, whose 10-day contract expires during the All-Star break. “Everyone is down about losing. This is a game we should’ve won.”That didn’t happen.Instead the Lakers have lost seven consecutive home games and 11 of their last 13, an expected outcome considering the Thunder remains the Western Conference’s best team. Still, Oklahoma City played without former UCLA product Russell Westbrook (right knee). Like the Lakers did during their championship run, Oklahoma City may have played down to the competition. The Lakers remained competitive despite nursing long-term injuries to Kobe Bryant (left knee), Nick Young (left knee), Jordan Farmar (left hamstring) and Jodie Meeks (right ankle).But as with most things that have happened this season, the Lakers walked off the court with a loss. “I’ve never questioned them coming to practice, working hard, trying to get better and trying to be a team,” D’Antoni said. “They’ve been good at that all year.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
