The Los Angeles Lakers beat the Memphis Grizzlies, 107-100, behind Jordan Clarkson’s team-leading 22 points and Julius Randle’s 30th double-double of the season. Kobe Bryant also chipped in 20 points, after taking the past nine days off to rest his shoulder, which he said is feeling great.
It was also Tony Allen’s final matchup with the man that titled him the best defender he’s ever faced. Allen dropped 27 points, on a perfect 12-12 clip, and after the game Bryant talked about the feeling of going up against him one final time. Plus, Clarkson said Allen even gave him a few defensive tips over the course of the night.
Lakers head coach Byron Scott discusses D’Angelo Russell leaving the game with a shin bruise, which could have him out for Wednesday’s game in Phoenix. And, Bryant also talks about his favorite memories of Vince Carter and why he’s not a believer in forcing athletes to attend college.
