Points for Darius Morris, a career-high. Morris, selected a few spots ahead of Goudelock in the second round,dished out six assists, tying a career-high. He and Goudelock combined for 44 of the 89 Lakers points.
Different starting lineups the Lakers have used this season, including the second one in this series. Every player on the roster has started because of countless injuries.
Triple-doubles for Pau Gasol this year, all coming in the last two weeks. Gasol recorded 11 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists for his first playoff career triple-double.
Second-half minutes and points for Metta World Peace. Prior to the game, World Peace had his knee drained, perhaps a side effect of returning just 12 days after surgery on his left knee. The St. John’s product shot 0 of 6 and has struggled all series long on both ends of the floor.
