Lakers News: Team Breaks Franchise Record For Three Pointers Made

Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

In one of the oddest games ever played by the Los Angeles Lakers, the team was forced to play with only eight players, ended up with five available and set a franchise record for three pointers made.

The Lakers hit 18 three-point field goals in the win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night according to ESPN Stats and Info via Twitter:

Along with hitting a franchise record 18 threes, the Lakers also set season-highs with 119 points and 35 assists against the Cavs.

Despite an unusually solid performance across the board for the undermanned Lakers, it wasn’t easy for this team to pull out the win. The team might have been red-hot with 18 made three pointers, but this team simply can’t stay healthy and continues to struggle to close out opponents.

Along with the franchise record for threes and the team ending up with only five players, Nick Young went down with a knee injury and Jordan Farmar appeared to re-injure his leg.

A crazy game with a wild ending to say the least, but the Lakers were able to snap the seven-game losing streak by getting the best of the lowly Cavs on the road.

    Secretly vouched for Kelly to get his 6th. What would’ve happened? Nash coming in? Didn’t understand that move.

  • Jim213

    • ra

      HAHAHAHA. That’s your best pic yet.

  • Kevin

    A certain blogger we all know loves Steve.Dick rider.

    • Daryl Peek

      SUCK IT!!

      • Kevin

        LOL Easy big guy.Hehehe.

        • Daryl Peek

          DAMN! That burger looks good than a mug too *hungry blank stare*

      • Devon Murray

        …and lets not forget it was against the CAVS… relax bro…

        • Daryl Peek

          What difference does it make who the opponent was? That was an amazing performance period.

          And anytime someone puts me on blast like that I will step to them! If someone calls you a dick rider are you gonna let that fly? I’m completely relaxed man.

          • Devon Murray

            Absolutely not I wouldn’t… we are Laker fans and expect to win chips EVERY year and when a year comes upon us like this year, we aren’t used to it… so if a person wants to name call you or me, we have to ask who their team is… Buck, Cavs… glad to get a win… Philly up next, Blake, Farmar, Johnson, even Marshall off he bench all balled out…

  • Ding Ding

    Good job by Kendall Marshall 4-6 from 3 point country,STFU Marshall haters.

    • Devon Murray

      and dropped 7or 8 asst.. it aint parkay…is KButta..

  • Ding Ding

    Far from done from 3 point country,we run LA for a night at least lol.

  • Daryl Peek

    WOW?!? This is Bynumesk!

    I’ve supported Kaman all season scratching my head in disagreement with D’Antoni on his lack of PT. NO more! This was just after he fouled out in a hotly contested game. He’s gotta go before the trade deadline…

    BTW, his 6th foul was absolutely stupid!

    • e3bonz

      I thought his lack of minutes was a prelude to a trade. I agree Blake was stellar tonight.

      • Jim213

        5-5 or 4-6 agree? =o, but if Farmar is out again and Young too for a week or two it’s possible.

        • e3bonz

          I still say 3-7, but now that’s looking optimistic…

      • ra

        yeah, trade away all the biggest players on the Lakers. Good move.

        Then we should abandon the term ‘small ball’ and start calling it ‘microscopic ball’. The Lakers could start becoming a top team in the ‘under 6 ft 2 inch’ league category.

        Or, they could start playing 2 on 2 in Venice Beach. King & the Duck, look out!

    • Jim213

      The result of not playing players and elbowing teammates.

    • Jim213

      His two cents as part of the bench and locker room. But if one has an issue…

      • Daryl Peek

        ha

    • Al Haldie

      Ya and then with no centers we could use MARSHALL AT THE 5…

      • Daryl Peek

        He put us in that plight with the boneheaded 6th foul he committed. Kaman is a 10 plus year vet, he’s knows better.

        • antzer

          Maybe he did it on purpose to get back at MDA; heck I wouldve probably done it too. I dont understand why MDA does not play him?

      • Al Haldie

        OR SACRE could play all 48 – and what dumb mistake did he do – he got 6 also —get rid of him also they make too many fouls – their no good——-man there is a war going on out there every nite..

        • Daryl Peek

          Kaman ran through Verajo trying to challenge a three point shot with 5 fouls. He blatantly ran through a player trying to defend a play he had absolutely no shot of challenging? Every vet of his status understand the 5 foul plight he’s playing with. Sacre lasted much longer in that circumstance and he is no where near the player Kaman is.

    • Devon Murray

      Daryl Peek, youre wrong, if your going to post something… FACT check what you post… This was in the 3rd quarter…. Kaman fouled out in the 4th…not with standing his 6th foul…
      From Foxsports: Chris Kaman fouled out with 8:29 left in the 4th quarter… he may have foreseen his future as he decided to take a little nap in the 3rd quarter of the game that would get a lot more crazy as the game went on.

      • Daryl Peek

        You are right Sir. I just saw it via ESPN numbers never lie. My badd. I usually do fact check before I post things on the Lakers. This was a reactionary post on my part when I saw the pic at the time. From what I now understand Kaman was just clowning in mocking the bench being so empty. He only did it for a like 2 seconds. The pic just looked very bad. Poor judgement on my part to convict him without digging deeper.

        • Devon Murray

          Oh the picture not only looked bad, it was bad even for the few seconds he did it, it makes it look lie Mike doesn’t have the real respect of this team, I don’t know that for sure, but there is no way he does that if Phil, Pop, Larry Brown or even Doc Rivers were the coach. Didn’t mean to get all emotional on you, but these Lakers are going to have me drinking Jack or Jose….lol

          • Daryl Peek

            I completely feel you on the losing but I have more patience’s than most being an old head that’s seen all of the ups and downs since 1976. I’m not use to the Lakers losing but I’m aware there’s a cycle to the building of a dynasty, even for the Buss/West run Lakers.

            On Phil and respect, of course Phil, arguably the greatest HC of all time gets more instant respect but he to gets tested and had bad relations with players also. Kobe tested Phil for several years causing Phil to write a book about it detailing how he couldn’t get through nor work with Kobe anymore at the time. Bynum was constantly disrespectful to Phil. Farmar was not the biggest fan of Phil when he left. No one is immune to this as a leader.

          • Devon Murray

            Oh yes, how quickly I forget those situations… youre totally right. and yes I am trying to have patience as I did of that 95 Lakers team…and to finally hear Mitch reluctantly say the they would “unfortunately” have a high draft pick, it is starting to set in that they are going to rebuild and in a very quick way…
