After a rather disappointing performance in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals, it seems that Los Angeles point guard Ramon Sessions may have had a reason for his lackluster play.
According to O.C. Register Lakers beat writer Kevin Ding, Sessions reportedly sprained his ankle in the second quarter of Monday night’s game.
Sessions told me he landed wrong in 2nd quarter and sprained his ankle. Limping slightly as he walked out.

This might explain Sessions’ unfortunate stat line. He scored just two points in 26 minutes, and made just one of his seven shot attempts.
If the Lakers are going to be successful in this series they’re going to need more from Sessions.
