Sacramento
Los Angeles

[LOS ANGELES] — The Los Angeles Lakers played host to the Sacramento Kings last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 98 to 94 Lakers victory. The win bumps Los Angeles's record up to 24-55 on the season, while the loss drags Sacramento's down to 31-48. Though a win's a win and Lakers fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Darren Collison's 15 points, 5 rebounds, 10 assists, 0 blocks and 1 steals in 28 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Unfortunately for Collison, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Lakers. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Sacramento back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Lakers in the victory was Julius Randle and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Collison, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Randle posted 25 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists in the win.

Los Angeles's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Kings, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Lakers will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Lakers will be a date with the Minnesota Timberwolves while the visiting Kings will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Houston Rockets.
