It was a breezy blowout in the making. Then it got tight. Then it got desperate. Then it got flat-out absurd.
The Lakers haven’t been able to close games convincingly this year. And never has that been more apparent than in a 3OT loss to the Kings: ocregister.com/2021/11/26/lak…3:12 AM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
Another note from the Kings’ win over the Lakers tonight:
Marvin Bagley III came off the bench to post 13 points, seven rebounds and a *career-high tying four assists* with only one turnover in 35 minutes. – 2:59 AM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
At the 10:02 mark of the fourth quarter, the Lakers had a 13-point lead. Here’s what their shot charts looked like for the rest of the game. The Lakers struggled to make anything outside of the paint, while the Kings kind of made shots all over. pic.twitter.com/EdIBvb910D2:53 AM

Chris Palmer @ChrisPalmerNBA
The Lakers won the title 13 months ago. That feels like a lifetime. – 2:48 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Kings scored nearly as many points in last 25 minutes of tonight’s game (68) as they had in first 38 minutes when they trailed 86-73 with 10 minutes left in regulation – 2:33 AM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
LeBron says he saw that Isaiah Stewart’s comment that he didn’t think the strike to his face was accidental; LeBron reiterates that it was, in fact accidental. He meant to chop down on Stewart, but did not mean to hit him in the face. – 2:32 AM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
LeBron said “I gotta be better for this team,” citing a mix of turnovers and missed shots. – 2:31 AM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
LeBron James mentions his “horrible turnovers” and that he feels that he played horrible game personally. He had seven total. – 2:28 AM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
I don’t know what the Lakers are going to do about Frank Vogel, but whatever it is, they need to do it definitively.
If he’s the coach, there needs to be a public showing of support. If he isn’t, rip the band-aid off. This can’t keep lingering after every loss. – 2:26 AM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Anthony Davis says shot quality can be improved at the end of games, attack the basket more toward the end of the game when the legs are gone. “We shot a lot of jump shots. All of us did.” But he says he’s more worried about the defensive end, where they’re letting teams rebound. – 2:18 AM

Arash Markazi @ArashMarkazi
I’ve tried hard not to compare this Lakers team to the 2012-13 disaster but LeBron James just played 50 minutes and had 30 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists only to have the Lakers lose at home to the 7-12 Sacramento Kings, which just fired their coach after losing 8 of 9 games. – 2:13 AM
Chris Palmer @ChrisPalmerNBA
Other than LeBron who should be the Lakers next head coach? – 2:08 AM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
Kings guard Tyrese Haliburton ends his postgame media session for the second game in a row by asking: “How was I defensively tonight?” – 2:08 AM
Micah Adams @MicahAdams13
LeBron James just played the most minutes in NBA history by a player in his 19th season or later including both the regular season and playoffs.
49:45.
In a loss.
To fall under .500 again.
Against a team that just fired its coach after a fan literally vomited on the floor. – 2:05 AM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Frank Vogel on how the Lakers have allowed teams to come back in fourths and play close games: When we get an opportunity to knock a team out, we just give them opportunities to stick around. – 2:03 AM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
The Lakers have offensive problems that I think are mostly fixable (at least in the regular season) through better scheme.
The Lakers have defensive problems that are the result of inconsistent effort and fundamental roster flaws. – 2:01 AM
Chris Palmer @ChrisPalmerNBA
Let me see if I have this right. LeBron 30, Russ 29, AD 23, Monk 20. And the Lakers still lose at home to the lowly Kings. – 1:59 AM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Frank Vogel isn’t the only thing wrong with the Lakers, he’s just the easiest thing that’s wrong with the Lakers to dislodge. You can’t fire half of the roster. I don’t think it’s entirely fair but I think he’s by far the likeliest fall guy for problems that run organization-deep – 1:58 AM

The Lakers lose at home in triple overtime to the 7-12 Kings, 141-137.
– The Lakers are now 10-11.
– The Lakers led by 12 with 8:32 left in the 4th quarter.
– LeBron James: 30 pts, 11 ast & 7 reb, Russell Westbrook: 29 pts, 11 ast & 10 reb, Anthony Davis: 23 pts, 8 reb & 4 ast. – 1:55 AM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
If Frank Vogel doesn’t finish the season as coach of the Lakers I hope that Mike D’Antoni does. – 1:54 AM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Why were Carmelo and Monk on the floor for the last defensive possession in the first overtime? That’s what I can’t get over from Vogel. The lineup choices and philosophical differences, that stuff is subjective, but not having your hand on the wheel at that moment is inexcusable – 1:53 AM

Alvin Gentry says his Kings bailed him out cuz he felt the game was over in the second OT with the out of bounds play – he meant to call a timeout to advance the ball – 1:52 AM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
Shorthanded against the star-studded Lakers, the Kings played a gritty game for Alvin Gentry. They struggled to hit shots, but stuck with LA through three overtime sessions. In the end, it was all Kings. Here are 6 quick thoughts from an incredible 141-137 win. – 1:50 AM

Lakers, who led by 13 in the 4th Q, end up losing in triple-overtime 141-137 to a Sacramento Kings team that came into the night with a 7-12 record overall and losers of 8 of their last 10. LeBron 30p (2-of-13 from 3) 11a 7r 7tos; Westbrook 29p on 10-of-18 11a 10r; AD 23p 4b 3s – 1:46 AM

Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
Kings find a way to win, beating the Lakers 141-137 in triple overtime despite the absences of Harrison Barnes, Richaun Holmes and, now, Maurice Harkless. De’Aaron Fox finishes with 34 points, eight assists and six rebounds. Good win. Big contributions from everybody. – 1:45 AM

Per @Stathead, LeBron James’ minutes in tonight’s triple-OT loss (49:45) were his most since April 2017: bit.ly/3raunbn1:45 AM

FINAL: Kings 141, Lakers 137 after not one, not two but THREE overtimes. De’Aaron Fox leads all scorers with 34 points. Big Three combine for 82 points, but can’t get it done at home against the struggling Kings, falling to 10-11. – 1:45 AM

Kings changed coaches and Lakers were brought closer together by Beef Stew not even a week ago 🤯🤯 – 1:45 AM
Noel Harris @NorCalNoel916
So maybe the Kings need to go to triple OT every game. OK maybe not. – 1:45 AM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
Of course the Kings win a triple overtime game.
Against the Lakers.
In LA.
Without Harrison Barnes & Richaun Holmes.
FINAL: 141-137 – 1:44 AM

EVERYONE deserves love tonight.
Fox played like an absolute STUD in 53 minutes.

LAL led 88-76 on Monk’s bucket at the 8:57 mark.

A quick 8-0 Lakers run to start the 4th Q gave them some breathing room, at 86-73. LeBron had B2B assists for Monk and Ellington 3’s, which is what the 4th Q and OT in Indy looked like as well. – 12:24 AM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Lakers an 8-0 run to begin the 4th, lead the Kings 86-73 with 9:53 to go. – 12:23 AM

Lakers with a 78-73 lead over the Kings headed to the 4th. A 35 point quarter for Los Angeles. Four Kings in double figures, led by De’Aaron Fox with 16. Russell Westbrook with 18 for the Lakers. – 12:19 AM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
I’m not buying the Kings offense being the strength of this team. Even on Black Friday. – 12:19 AM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
LAL take a 78-73 lead into the 3rd Q, mostly thanks to a bench push from Malik Monk, who’s 5 for 6 from the field with a pair of 3rd Q 3’s.
Lakers have 14 TO’s to SAC’s 9, and are a -5 on the offensive glass, helping keep the Kings around. – 12:19 AM

Huge triple from Haliburton. Kings hanging in. 70-68 Lakers with 2:08 remaining in 3Q. – 12:12 AM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
A beautifully crafty finish by @Malik Monk put LAL up 70-65, after he hit a 3 on the previous trip.
Monk was driving right to left, and SAC thought he might be going to a righty floater, but instead, he switched to a lefty finger roll. Very tricky to defend on the move. – 12:11 AM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Lakers take a 70-65 lead over the Kings. Russ has gotten it together in this half, especially getting to the line and leading the team with 15 points. – 12:09 AM

Kings just shot 34.6% from the field, with Fox at 10 points on 11 shots. Missing Barnes/Holmes.
Lakers have Bron/AD/Russ, who have 21 points on 23 shots.
Tied at 43.
At least it’s shaping up to be a fun finish – 11:40 PM

Halftime: Kings 43, Lakers 43.
Good news: Kings on pace for 100+ shots, something Alvin Gentry has mentioned as part of his plan to push the pace.
Bad news: Kings are just 18 of 52 (.353) from the field and 5 of 20 from 3-point range.
Also: Kings are outrebounding Lakers 31-24 – 11:37 PM
Dave Mason @DeuceMason
Wild to me that Anthony Davis shoots 18% from 3 this year and he’s settling against the Kings. – 11:37 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
Kings shot 34.6% from the field in the first half. Out rebounded the Lakers, but that can happen when you can’t hit a shot. – 11:37 PM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Kings get a nice boost from Tristan Thompson in the second quarter as the Kings and Lakers are tied 43-43 headed into halftime. 8 points, 4 boards from TT in his 9 minutes of action. Kings led by De’Aaron Fox’s 10 points, Lakers with 9 points from Anthony Davis. – 11:35 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
HALFTIME: Still tied at 43 all.
No Laker in double digits, led by Anthony Davis with 9 points. LeBron with 7 points and 5 assists. De’Aaron Fox leads the Kings with 10 points. – 11:34 PM

With Holmes and Barnes out, the Kings need Buddy Hield to hit his shots. So far, 0-for-5, including 4 misses from 3. This is a moment to shine against a team that almost traded for him, not fade. – 11:24 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
With AD now at the 5 after 8 minutes apeice from Jordan and then Howard, the Lakers got running in transition, as Monk scored consecutive fastbreak dunks off a missed Kings 3, then a Kings turnover, doubling LAL’s lead from 4 to 8. – 11:24 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
I know it’s still just a four-point game, but to my eyes, the Lakers looked far more organized during that six-minute stretch led by LeBron, contesting well and running offense that made sense. Misses and Sac makes made it look a little less impressive. – 11:22 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
Haliburton with his second triple. Kings need him to be aggressive if they have any shot in this one. – 11:17 PM

I’m not home tonight but I’ve got the Laker game cast on my phone. I was genuinely surprised to see “Carmelo Anthony misses 3-point shot,” but then it loaded and he’d immediately made two of them. I fucking love Staples Melo. – 11:14 PM

Lakers and Kings knotted at 20-20 after the opening period. Sacramento shooting under 30%, Los Angeles not much better at 35%. – 11:08 PM

All tied at 20 after a 1st Q that wasn’t the most crisp for either team. LAL were 7 for 20 from the field, and 4 of 8 at the FT line, and SAC 8 of 27, and 2 for 6 at the stripe.
Lakers had 3 TO’s to 1 for the Kings. – 11:08 PM

Dating back to the start of Wednesday’s victory vs. the Lakers, Evan Fournier has made 9 of his last 12 three-pointers.
Over NY’s last 3+ games, Fournier is 14-of-25 (56%) from downtown.
He’s a good shooter. – 7:20 PM
