In their opening night defeat to the Golden State Warriors, the Los Angeles Lakers struggled on both sides of the court
but in their subsequent contest, they played considerably better on one side of the court.
The Lakers played excellent defence against the Clippers and even received 26 points from Lonnie Walker IV,
but their outside shooting ultimately proved to be their downfall.
The Lakers had excellent energy the whole game, but they only shot 20 percent from outside the arc while holding the Clippers to just 103 points.
Walker had a strong night and led the Lakers with 26 points, but it wasn't what made the difference on this particular occasion.
