[LOS ANGELES] — The Los Angeles Lakers played host to the Dallas Mavericks last night but couldn't manage to leave much of an impact, failing to keep up with their visiting rivals and eventually succumbing in a 111-122 defeat. The loss bumps Los Angeles's record down to 19-45 on the season, while the victory gives Dallas a 27-36 total on the year. It's not overly surprising that the Lakers would end up losing this one consider they did little to establish themselves as dangerous threats. Perhaps the showing can serve as an essential building block for the team in the days to come.

Still, one can't be overly enthusastic about the numbers considering that even Randle himself would presumably trade the solid figures for a different result on the scoreboard. Needless to say, Los Angeles will take any win they can get their hands on considering where they find themselves in the conference but this just wasn't one of them.

Unable to match Randle's numbers, Dirk Nowitzki can rest assured that he bested his rival where it actually counts. Nowitzki's 25 points, 11 rebounds and 1 assists led the Mavericks in the winning effort.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Lakers can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though Los Angeles wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavericks, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the .
