Depleted Lakers earn ugly 96-90 win over Bulls to even record

first_imgAll of which helped the Lakers (10-10) move back to the .500 mark and experience a dose of good news after experiencing recent turmoil. The Lakers learned earlier on Wednesday that Young would stay sidelined between two to four weeks after an MRI determined he had a strained calf muscle in his right leg. Russell remains sidelined for at least a week after having a non-invasive procedure last week to treat his sore left knee.That left Young feeling hesitant beforehand to pinpoint one specific player that could cover his absence.“I don’t want to say replace,” Young said. “Replace is a tough word.”Young then called for Lakers rookie forward Brandon Ingram to receive more playing time. He touted the scoring abilities that Lou Williams and Jordan Clarkson have shown as reserves. Young even called on Lakers center Timofey Mozgov to make more 3-pointers.If only it were so easy. CHICAGO >> The Lakers could not rely on D’Angelo Russell having ice in his veins. Nor could the Lakers depend on Nick Young stealing the ball from a teammate to take the game-winning shot.Even if the Lakers’ offense often looked ugly without their starting backcourt, they still found a way to make key shots to secure a 96-90 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday at United Center.In only his second game since missing the previous three with a hip pointer, Julius Randle cemented his sixth double-double of the season by driving for a layup that gave the Lakers a 92-90 lead with 45.1 seconds to play. He then made one out of two free-throw attempts to ice the game.After spending most of his 12-year NBA career drawing fouls anytime he wanted to, Lakers guard Lou Williams baited Chicago guard Rajon Rondo into sending him to the free-throw line. Williams then made one of two foul shots. When Chicago forward Jimmy Butler air-balled a potential game-tying 3-pointer, Williams forced the ball out of bounds. The Lakers showed that their ability to generate offense came in between plenty of sloppy play. It only illustrated the Lakers’ otherwise well-oiled offense this year depended plenty on Russell’s playmaking and Young’s shot-taking.The Lakers still featured Williams (18 points), Clarkson (18) and Larry Nance Jr. (12) scoring in double digits and showing why they are the NBA’s top bench unit in scoring. Randle had 13 points and 20 rebounds and forward Luol Deng had his most productive game thus far wearing a purple and gold uniform (10 points).Yet, the Lakers showed plenty of qualities that contradicted why they boasted one of the league’s top-ranked offenses thus far. With the Lakers shooting 40.7 percent from the field, Williams (4 of 12), Randle (4 of 13), Deng (3 of 9) and Ingram (1 of 9) were the most egregious offenders. The Lakers committed 24 turnovers; Chicago scoring 26 points off the miscues.But even if the Lakers also committed 24 fouls, the Bulls (10-7) only shot 35.2 percent from the field. Despite the Lakers’ offensive miscues, they still grinded through a win by making key plays without their two top playmakers.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
