Los Angeles Lakers basketball is finally back. The purple and gold kicked off their preseason campaign with a Sunday night contest against the Utah Jazz in Hawaii. The Lakers came up short on the scoreboard after an atrocious fourth quarter led to a 90-71 loss.
It was the first of eight preseason games for Los Angeles, as they will face Utah again on Tuesday from the University of Hawaii, with the game set to tip at 9 PM Pacific Standard Time.
Sunday’s game was also the first time we got a chance to see D’Angelo Russell with the actual roster, along with the return of Julius Randle from his leg injury a year ago.
Despite the defeat, there were plenty of reasons to be excited about the upcoming season. Here are the highlights of the game, brought to you by CaCHooKaManTV. Subscribe to his channel on YouTube for more!
