Summer League Recap: Lakers Fall to Warriors in Las Vegas Finale

The Lakers finished off their 2013 Las Vegas Summer League on Saturday night when they took on the top seeded Golden State Warriors. Los Angeles entered the game with a 3-1 record in LVSL, and were looking to advance to the semi-finals in the new, tournament-style format. However, they ran into an undefeated Warriors team that gave them more than enough trouble, and eventually finished off the Lakers, and ending their Summer League.

Let’s get to the action.

First Half

The Lakers opened the game strong, and took control in the first half. While the first quarter was back and forth, in the second period the Lakers were able to establish more rhythm and build themselves a slight lead. The team was led by the defensive presence of Travis Hyman, who blocked five shots in the game, and got some scoring help from Elias Harris and Lester Hudson. Marcus Landry also helped offensively, and at the break the Lakers had established a 10-point lead.

Second Half

In the third period the Lakers were able to maintain their lead. While the Warriors cut into it slightly, Los Angeles still had control of the game throughout the period. Hyman’s defensive presence came up big once again, and a well-rounded scoring effort that included Hudson, Landry, Harris and Chris Douglas-Roberts kept the Lakers in the lead. However, when the fourth quarter rolled around, the Lakers’ Summer League team looked all too similar to the regular season squad that squandered countless leads last season.

Golden State’s Kent Bazemore was the man of the hour, scoring 10 of the Warriors’ final 14 points and giving Golden State the lead late in the quarter. The Lakers fell behind by five before crawling back within one, but Bazemore and the upstart Warriors squad were too much to handle. In the end, the Warriors finished off the Lakers 83-77, ending the Lakers’ Summer League and propelling Golden State into the semis.

The next time the Lakers will be on the court will again be against the Warriors, but it will come in the team’s preseason opener next October.

The Lakers finished Summer League 2013 with a 3-2 record.
