Lakers can't overcome turnovers in loss to Pacers

Tuesday, 20 Mar, 2018

If you're looking for a common thread across the Los Angeles Lakers' three-game losing streak, including Monday's 110-100 loss to the Indiana Pacers, check Lonzo Ball's feet.

Once Kuzma's shot fell, Turner picked up where he left off in the first quarter, making a jumper then following it up with an impressive rebound and slam.

Pacers point guard Darren Collison contributed 15 points and eight assists. Los Angeles held a 47-44 rebounding edge.

Many did not think highly of Kuzma when he entered the National Basketball Association, but he has continued to play well for the Lakers and is now considered as one of their cornerstones for the coming years.

Kyle Kuzma led the Lakers with 27 points and Myles Turner led the Pacers with 21 points. The Pacers made 22 of 43 for 51.3 percent.

Following the stoppage, both teams continued to score at will, as Lakers center Brook Lopez kept racking up points, finishing the half with a game-high 17.

The Lakers sank 16 of 24 shots for 66.7 percent to take a 37-29 lead after the first quarter.

This time the Los Angeles Lakers couldn't do enough to overcome their mistakes against the Indiana Pacers.
