VIDEO: Summer League 2013 – Lakers vs. Bucks (07/18/13)


The Los Angeles Lakers entered the Summer League’s tournament stage yesterday when they took on the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Bucks got off to a quick start, ending the first period with a 26-18 lead, yet the Lakers responded with an 18-7 second quarter which ended up putting them in front for good. L.A. would go on to beat Milwaukee 72-68 in a game the Lakers nearly threw away due to some mental errors down the stretch.

Marcus Landry led the way with 18 points and 6 rebounds in just under 29 minutes. Robert Sacre had a solid outing also with 16 points, 8 rebounds and 1 block in just under 23 minutes. Sacre also shot an impressive 8-for-9 from the free throw line.

Lester Hudson had a good all round game with 9 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds, while Chris Douglas-Roberts posted 7 points, 1 assist and a block, though his two turnovers down the stretch were unforced – one on the inbounds pass from the sideline to half-court, and another inbounding from the baseline out to the top of the three-point line – and could’ve been costly if the Lakers ended up losing the game.

As for Elias Harris, he had a quiet scoring night with only 4 points, but did manage pull down 8 rebounds.

The Lakers will next face the Golden State Warriors in the quarter-finals on Saturday at 7:00 pm PST.
