The Los Angeles Lakers failed to capitalize on their win against the Utah Jazz as they fell against the Indiana Pacers (104-111), despite leading the game for three quarters.
Lakers Head coach Frank Vogel, who is reportedly on the hot seat, admitted that it is frustrating to see his team lose a game like this after a solid performance versus Utah.
“Very frustrating,” he said. “But it’s a long season and we believe in our group but this is just definitely a disappointing loss. Indy’s a team sub .500 that on our home court we feel like we should win and you got to win games you feel like you should win. So disappointing loss.”
This was the fourth loss in five games for the Lakers. With 22 wins and 23 defeats they occupy 8th place in the Western Conference.
