Kyle Kuzma takes blame for Lakers’ loss to Kings

LeBron James

Bogdan Bogdanovic knocked in the game-winning triple at the buzzer as the Sacramento Kings rallied past the Los Angeles Lakers, 117-116, in the National Basketball Association on Thursday, December 27 (Friday, December 28, Manila time). He saw 19 minutes in the first game without James and Rondo, scoring 10 points with three assists and two rebounds.

Bogdanovic had a team-high 23 points, with 12 of those coming in the fourth quarter. The Los Angeles Lakers star used an emoji to display his thanks. When you get the best closer in the game on your team, then you rely on him to do that.

"We were a little out of composed", Kuzma said, via Ron Gutterman of Lakers Nation.

James has displayed a tremendous capacity throughout his career to avoid extended absences with injury, but sources expected the Lakers and James will be careful not to risk further aggravation of the groin by returning too quickly. And even while taking a backseat for the most part offensively, has averaged 15.5 points per game this season.

Before Jakelin's death, no child had died in CBP custody in more than a decade, a Department of Homeland Security official said . He returned to the hospital on Monday evening after he began vomiting and died there just hours later, the statement added.

Lakers coach Luke Walton said the team wouldn't rush James back.

"Those type of things are what cost us the game, not not having him at the end or that shot that Bogdanovic hit", Walton said. "We scrambled around and got loose balls and were able to get out in transition".

This is the second procedure on the right hand for Rondo, who has appeared in just 14 games this season. It was claimed the Lakers were preparing for James to miss several games owing to the significant strain he suffered.
