The Lakers misplaced the second half of the sport in opposition to the Pelicans by 16 factors and ended up shedding the sport 126-131.
Los Angeles head coach Darvin Ham talked about what went flawed for his group within the second half that resulted within the loss.
“Their push was basically all energy,” Ham mentioned after the sport. “When you look at they were able to do in that third quarter in transition, they got some key offensive rebounds, second chance points.
“But that third quarter we just stopped guarding. Again, just being able to take, when you play really good first 24 minutes, you go in, you look at few things on film you got to able to remember what you did well, try to have the mindset to correct the few things you did wrong and come out with a purpose, with a sense of urgency. Obviously, we weren’t able to do that.
“That one quarter gave them life. You have two All-Star caliber players with Brandon [Ingram] and CJ [McCollum], active Larry Nance, good young player Herb Jones, good shooter [Trey Murphy III] just being able to understand that and the way they got their points.”
