The Utah Jazz extended the Los Angeles Lakers’ losing streak to four games by crushing the reigning NBA champions 114-89. Anthony Davis and Dennis Schroder were out for the Purple & Gold in one of the worst offensive games this season for the team.
After the game, the Lakers’ head coach Frank Vogel was asked what led to his team’s loss. “We just didn’t play well enough,” he said.
“We didn’t guard the three-point line well enough. We didn’t answer about a 17-point offensive third quarter which really limited what we’re trying to do in terms of answering back with that three-point attack.”
Los Angeles once again had an abysmal three-point shooting night with 8/33 from beyond the arc. In addition, just three players, namely LeBron James, Montrezl Harrell and Markieff Morris, finished the game in double-digit scoring.
