Lou's 36 send Clips past Lakers 118-107 in 1st clash of year - Dec 29, 2018

Lou Williams
Even while playing without LeBron James on the tail end of a back-to-back set, the Los Angeles Lakers managed to carve out a double-digit lead in the third quarter against the Los Angeles Clippers. That's when the Clippers' four toughest defenders clamped down and Sweet Lou went wild to win this basketball-loving city's first rivalry game of the season. Lou Williams (6'1''-SG-86) had a season-high 36 points and the Clippers scored 22 consecutive points during the second half of a 118-107 victory over the depleted Lakers on Friday night. Danilo Gallinari (6'10''-SF-88) added 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Clippers, who held the Lakers without a field goal for more than six minutes while matching the longest unanswered scoring run by any team in the NBA this season. "We were just a little sluggish," Williams said. "We were just a step slow. We knew they were on a back-to-back, but for whatever reason, we just weren't playing our best until we put a good stretch together in the third and then busted the game wide open in the fourth." Although both LA franchises are still building chemistry after major roster changes in 2018, the Clippers found a groove to get it done in front of the Lakers' jeering home fans. They showed some style, too: After Williams punctuated a decisive 3-pointer by mimicking Lakers guard Lance Stephenson's air guitar celebration of big shots, Montrezl Harrell (6'8''-F-94, college: Louisville) grinningly waved on the boos in the final minute. The Clippers turned a seven-point deficit into a 15-point lead early in the fourth quarter of their fourth win in five games. Williams torched his former team yet again, scoring 23 points in the second half, yet the game turned with the suffocating defense played by Patrick Beverley (6'1''-PG-88, college: Arkansas), Harrell, Avery Bradley and Sindarius Thornwell (6'5''-G-94, college: S.Carolina) during that 22-0 run. "We put the bulldogs on the floor, and the fight was amazing," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. Williams hit three 3-pointers, including a decisive shot with 2:23 to play, and the skinny 6-foot-1 guard even grabbed seven rebounds while making all 11 of his free throws. "Lou has seen pretty much every defense you can throw at him," Rivers said. "He's a professional scorer." Kyle Kuzma (6'9''-F-95, college: Utah) scored 24 points and Lonzo Ball had 19 for the Lakers, who played without James, Rajon Rondo and JaVale McGee. The remaining Lakers lost for the fifth time in seven games, following up their surprising win at Golden State on Christmas Day with just their third back-to-back defeats since October. James watched from the bench in street clothes after causing a pregame stir on social media when he entered the Lakers' locker room holding a glass of wine. The noted oenophile and four-time NBA MVP is day-to-day with his strained groin, but James isn't expected to miss as much time as Rondo, who is out for at least a month after surgery on his right index finger. "I know we can get through it," Lakers coach Luke Walton said. "I know it's not going to be easy, but I believe in the guys that we have. We've just got to do a couple of things a little bit better." One night after losing at Sacramento on a buzzer-beating 3, the Lakers again couldn't win without three veteran regulars. Ingram and Ball both picked up four fouls during the third quarter, but neither team made a big move until the Clippers scored the final nine points of the quarter and continued their one-sided run well into the fourth. "A lot of us ran out of gas right there," Kuzma said. "When we're tired physically, our mental aspect has to be better."

Jimmy Butler To Decline His Player Option - 1 day ago
Jimmy Butler (6'7''-G/F-89, college: Marquette) will decline his player option for the 2019/20 season and hit the free agent market, sources tell Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. The Sixers have been expecting Butler to take this route.

Butler has previously expressed that he's confident a max contract awaits him in free agency. The Lakers have real...   [read more]

Goran Dragic is back in play for the Miami Heat, with the Sun Sentinel confirming Thursday through an NBA source that the veteran point guard has picked up the $19.2 million 2019-20 option on his contract.
