In the first half, Lakers game was better than the game of Jazz and shot 43 percent and in the half time team had to tie.
Offense of the Lakers’ mad stuck at the turnover of 13 which led Jazz to score 16 points. At the first half of the game Utah was trailed yet he remained strong and had taken the lead first by the end of the third quarter. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is in the second year of the team Luke Walton and Lakers of Los Angeles found tough to maintain the consistency.
There was a prohibition last year and was sentenced not to play road games. This made Caldwell-Pope to continue his contact with Lakes for one more year. This was a poor start for Caldwell Pope because he was taken away from the line up starting by looking out his performance in three games. Yet, he found his momentum and scored in two digits in his six consecutive straight games.
Walton has appreciated him saying that he is a great basket ball player. Though Caldwell pope is unlike Lebron James, he has contributed many which cannot be undermined where his ability can be seen when the team is in need of him. In the fourth quarter of the game, Lakers had a great come back and got a chance for them because of Jazz’s slip off.
Javale McGee could not face the ball which was a great opportunity for the Lakers to score nine points.
