VIDEO: Lakers vs. Sixers – extended highlights (01/01/13)


Although the defense wasn’t exemplary, it was the Lakers shooting that let them down tonight.

The Lakers shot just 39% from the field, including a miserable three of 22 (14%) from beyond the arc, and converted on a lacklustre 22 of 33 (67%) free throw attempts.

The poor shooting was most conspicuous with the Lakers twin towers of Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol. Howard shot only one of seven (14%) from the field, and Gasol was only two of 12 (17%). Those two were supposed to provide the Lakers with a big advantage in their match-ups tonight, but they clearly did not.
