Los Angeles Lakers vs. Sacramento Kings

We're going to have to do this one without our crazy talented rookie, Jordan Clarkson. He's going to sit this last game out with a sprained ankle he acquired in the last game. This is the final game of the season. Our starters tonight are Jordan Hill, Tarik Black, Jabari Brown, Ryan Kelly, and Vander Blue. It's nice to see Jordan Hill back in the game. We're halfway through the first quarter and the Lakers are down by seven. Ryan Kelly just knocked down a three pointer. Vander Blue just made a driving layup. Vander Blue just made a sweet 26 foot three point jumper, giving Ryan Kelly the assist. It's the end of the first quarter with a score of 33-23 Kings. 

Derrick Williams just made a bad pass, giving Vander Blue the opportunity to steal the ball. Ryan Kelly just made a driving layup, Blue getting the assist. The Lakers just displayed some impressive ball movement as Ryan Kelly got a 27 foot three point jumper. That was some great teamwork from the Lakers. Vander Blue just made a bad pass, Carl Landry got the steal. Vander Blue is playing some impressive ball tonight. This kid is showing some nice athleticism. He's pretty impressive as far as making his shots, free throws, and he's handling the ball well. Blue just made a driving layup. Derrick Williams just made a driving layup as well. Carlos Boozer just made a couple of nice shots. Ed Davis just made a driving dunk with Jabari getting the assist. The second quarter is not going well for the Lakers. 

The Lakers definitely have some good players now, but we're still missing our MVP. Wait til the Black Mamba returns and then it will be gametime all the way. This has been a tough season to watch, let alone write about. I'm very much looking forward to next season when we have a healthier and more efficient team. One thing's for sure in this game... Vander Blue is playing to impress tonight and I'm sold. He's a keeper! It's surprising that he came from the D-League. We're halfway through the second quarter and Jabari Brown is 0 for 6 so far. So, he's having a pretty tough time. It's been a tough shooting half for Jabari Brown. He shot 1 for 8 in this first half. The Kings are shooting 56%. The Lakers still have a chance to turn things around in the second half. The first half ended with a score of 67-53 Kings. 

Tarik Black just got a flagrant one, Ray McCallum drawing the foul. The Kings happen to be the worst free throw shooting team in the league. Jabari Brown just made a three point jumper, giving Vander Blue the assist. The Kings are leading by 19 points, which is their biggest lead of the game. The Lakers still seem to be struggling in this quarter. It's no surprise, as most of their players are injured and chillin on the bench. We've got more players dressed in suits on our bench, than we do in jerseys. Jabari Brown just got a nice steal. Jabari just made a sweet three point jumper. It's nice to see that Jabari Brown has warmed up, but the Lakers are still down by 11. Jabari Brown has 19 points in this third quarter. 

This game is nearly impossible to write about. All I got out of this ugly, blow out game was the enjoyment from watching Jabari Brown and Vander Blue getting some play time. That's about it. I want Vander Blue on my Lakers team! Ben McLemore just made a 28 foot three point jumper. Jabari Brown had an amazing game. This game is so over. The final score is 122-99 Kings. Jabari Brown had 32 points, 3 rebounds, and 2 assists. Vander Blue had 15 points, 7 rebounds, and 8 assists. #GoLakers
