Despite leading by 13 points in the fourth quarter, the Los Angeles Lakers lost against the Sacramento Kings in overtime (137-141). It was the team’s 11th loss in 21 games.
According to Lakers head coach Frank Vogel, a difficult start of the season was to be expected. “To me it’s like we knew the early season was going to be bumpy,” he said after the Kings game.
“This season is about peaking at the right time and understanding that we’re going to use the 82-game season to learn each other and to grow each day. You want to win games like this but there’s a big picture mindset that we’re taking with this team.”
