The Los Angeles Lakers recorded their 58th loss of the season on Sunday night, falling to the Wizards 101-88. Kobe Bryant scored 17 points in his final matchup against Washington, while D’Angelo Russell had a team-leading 22 points, despite playing through an ankle sprain he suffered during Friday’s game.
It was a rough night for Jordan Clarkson, who finished with just two points (1-of-7), five rebounds and three assists. After the game, Clarkson talked about the team needing to change their thinking.
Head coach Byron Scott said he’s starting to sound like a broken record, as the Lakers issues continue to emerge. Bryant discusses the so-called “passing of the torch,” meeting Shaquille O’Neal and Penny Hardaway as a kid and watching Oklahoma’s Buddy Hield go off for 37 points in the NCAA tournament.
