first_imgThunder forward Kevin Durant scored basically any time he wanted, posting 22 points on 7-of-13 shooting against a Lakers rookie (Anthony Brown) and an unproven defender (Nick Young). On one play, Durant even crossed over Lakers forward Julius Randle before performing an up-and-under over center Robert Sacre.• RELATED: Can LA’s young core entice Durant this offseason?The Lakers (4-23) lost to Oklahoma City (18-9) well before it was over. They shot 8.3 percent from 3-point range in the first half. They also posted 41 points, which nearly matched the season-low 35 they scored against Indiana last month. Afterward, Lakers coach Byron Scott reported telling his players “it was pathetic in every area” after finishing with their worst loss to the Seattle/Oklahoma City franchise.“Kobe’s fearless. These guys looked like they were scared tonight or intimidated,” Scott said. “We didn’t come to compete and they just played harder than we did. It looked like we were in awe of that team.” Amid Bryant’s absence, no one appeared ready to carry his mantle. Randle had two points on 1-of-7 shooting in 25 minutes off the bench. D’Angelo Russell posted a quiet 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting and five assists, and often did not have the chance to run the offense. But no one sounded thrilled with Scott questioning their courage. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error OKLAHOMA CITY >> The farewell tour came to a screeching halt. The Lakers’ losing stayed on schedule. Kobe Bryant missed the Lakers’ 118-78 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena after feeling soreness in his right shoulder. But he maintained he “should be” healthy enough to play in Tuesday’s game against Denver.“It was logical to expect it to be sore at some point,” Bryant said after having what he called “heavy-duty surgery” to repair a torn rotator cuff last January. “I just have to get ahead of it and rest.”The Lakers felt pain in another way, and their problems might not be temporary. center_img Said Russell: “I can only speak for myself. I’m definitely not scared.”Said Randle: “We didn’t have energy. We didn’t play with energy. We didn’t play as a team. But we definitely weren’t scared.”The lone bright spots included Lou Williams (20 points), Jordan Clarkson (15) and Young (14). “It’s embarrassing,” Clarkson said. “I don’t know if I was scared. They just outcompeted us.” Everything circles back to Bryant, who is playing his 20th and final NBA season after experiencing three season-ending ailments in the past two years. But Bryant downplayed throwing down his first dunk of the season on Thursday against Houston.“I’m sure it didn’t help,” Bryant said. “It was (sore) before then.”But what if that causes Bryant to sit out more games?“It just means it was a more thunderous dunk than we all thought,” Bryant joked.Yet, Oklahoma City doctors determined Bryant’s shoulder soreness isn’t serious. He also does not plan to return to Los Angeles for any additional checkups.But even as Bryant spoke in a calm tone, he did not take his absence lightly knowing the pockets of Lakers fans that traveled here to see him for possibly one last time. “It helped me out a little bit because I know I’m coming back,” said Bryant, whose last game in Oklahoma City will be on April 11. “But I still want to make sure I’m ready to play for the rest of the games this season and make sure I’m healthy.”With how they played on Saturday, it appears doubtful the Lakers can recover as quickly. last_img read more
