Lakers Allow 44-Point 4th Quarter, Fall to Spurs, 133-120, in San Antonio

"We didn't do a good job staying in front of ballhandlers in the pick and roll," said Kyle Kuzma who had 27 points and eight rebounds.

"They hit a rhythm and we couldn’t stop them," said James matter of factly from a chair in the visiting hallway after his locker was devastated by rain and a leak in the ceiling during the game.

The Lakers led by as many as 15 points in the first half, and 12 in the fourth quarter, but their spirit was broken down the stretch as San Antonio caught fire from beyond the arc, and the LA defense seemingly didn't have an answer.

"Give San Antonio a lot of credit," added Lakers head coach Luke Walton.

James and Ball became the first Lakers duo to each have 10+ assists since Kobe Bryant and Paul Gasol did it on March 30, 2013 against the Sacramento Kings.

Rondo worked out on the court prior to the game with teammates Isaac Bonga, Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk and Ivica Zubac.
