We broke down some of the more intriguing numbers from LAL’s 102-83 loss at Golden State:
Percentage of field goals made for the Lakers, a season low. With no healthy point guards (outside recently signed Kendall Marshall), L.A. struggled to gain any rhythm on offense, particularly in the third quarter when they shot just 3 for 21 (14.3 percent). For the 11th time, Golden State held an opponent under 40 percent from the floor, which ranks second in the NBA behind the Indiana Pacers.
Rebounds for Andrew Bogut, including nine on the offensive end – both season highs. The 7-footer has now grabbed double digit boards in eight straight games, averaging 14.4 in that span.
Points per game Nick Young is averaging off the bench. For the second straight contest, Young led the team in scoring with 20 points. Though he shot just 5 for 18 from the floor, he did convert on 9 of 12 from the charity stripe.
Different starting lineups the Lakers have used this season. Pau Gasol, the only Laker to have started every contest prior to Golden State, missed his first game of the year because of a upper respiratory infection. Outside of Jordan Farmar, Ryan Kelly and Marshall, each player has started at least one game.
Three-pointers made for the Lakers, a season low. In the month of December, the team is shooting just 31.2 percent from beyond the arc and averaging just 7.3 makes per game. In October and November, those figures were at 41.2 percent and 10.6 makes per contest.
