Game Recap: Kings bounce back, beat the Lakers 84-72
Looking to bounce back from last night’s debacle, the Kings pulled away from the Lakers late, beating the purple and gold by a score of 84-72.
While the fans were waiting for Jimmer Fredette or Thomas Robinson to blow up, it was the 5-foot-11 Josh Akognon who looked unstoppable. The 26-year old out of Cal State Fullerton led all scorers with 25, shooting 10-for-16 from the field, including 4-for-8 from distance.
Jimmer scored 15 points and handed out four assists, but shot only 3-for-11 from the field. Robinson finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds for his first double-double of the summer, but again, shot a less than stellar 3-for-13.
Darius Morris bounced back after a miserable game on Friday night, leading the Lakers with 17 points. Robert Sacre dropped 11 points and 10 rebounds for the Lakers in the loss.
