The Los Angeles Lakers’ preseason woes continued on Tuesday night when they fell to the Utah Jazz 114-80.
Despite a 23-point explosion from Kobe Bryant in the third quarter, L.A. could never really work their way back into the game after falling behind early. Steve Nash having something of an off night didn’t really help matters – the Lakers’ floor general finished with two points, one assist and four turnovers. Similarly, Antawn Jamison (who stepped in for Pau Gasol in the starting lineup) struggled, totaling up a mere seven points on 2-of-11 shooting.
For those keeping track at home: Kobe and the gang are still winless in the preseason. Take that for what it’s worth.
Here are the highlights (lowlights if you’re a Lakers fan):
Next up for L.A. – a showdown versus the Sacramento Kings in Staples.
