Lakers get close but that’s it in loss to Grizzlies

admin no comments

first_imgThough Bryant nearly collected his second triple-double of the week with 15 points on 6-of-14 shooting, nine rebounds and eight assists in 33 minutes, the Lakers’ star showed a mixed result in late-game baskets. He missed a 13-foot jumper as the Lakers trailed 102-100 left with 1:47 left. Yet, Bryant also hit a 26-foot 3-pointer that cut the deficit to 106-105 with 24 seconds.Lakers coach Byron Scott has admired the Memphis Grizzlies from afar on how they have become an elite defensive team predicated on gritty play. But as they have done all season, the Lakers (10-23) hardly came close in showing that identity.After holding Memphis (24-8) to a 37.5-percent clip in the first quarter, the Lakers yielded double-digit performances to Mike Conley (19 points), Marc Gasol (18 points), Beno Udrih (16 points), Courtney Lee (14 points) and Prince (12). The Grizzlies also posted 48 points in the paint and outrebounded the Lakers 46-38.“I don’t necessarily think you need five great individual defenders,” Scott said beforehand. “You just need five great guys who are understanding the principles and do it on a consistent night to night basis.”How do the Lakers do that? The drama and unexpected twists traveled with the Lakers in nearly every step they took.But no matter what sort of identity the Lakers showed, they still found a way to lose.The Lakers’ 109-106 defeat to the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday at Staples Center became official once Kobe Bryant’s turnaround 3-point shot hit off the back rim with 0.6 seconds left. But so many other sequences set up that ending.Lakers forward Ed Davis came through with a season-high 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting and eight rebounds despite wearing a plastic mask to protect his broken nose. But Davis failed to tie the score on a pair of free throws. He made one of two attempts, his second one rimming out as the Grizzlies enjoyed a 102-101 edge with 2.1 seconds left. Moments earlier, plenty of fans at Staples Center expressed disappointment that Tayshaun Prince’s above-the-shoulder foul on Davis wasn’t called as a flagrant foul type 2. “Finding guys that have killer instincts,” Scott said. “That’s another conversation.”That negated some otherwise positive developments.Lakers guard Jeremy Lin posted 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting, five assists and three steals after spending all season mired in inconsistency and discomfort. Lakers forward Carlos Boozer helped anchor the second unit with 14 points before fouling out with 5:10 remaining. Nick Young complemented his new afro with 14 points, including a 3-pointer and a layup that put the Lakers up 97-96 with 4:17 left.But then the Lakers allowed Memphis to score 13 points in that final stretch, exposing a defensive weakness that becomes more problematic than of the Lakers’ offensive growth they have enjoyed in recent days.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
