The Lakers came a bit closer in Game 2, but still no cigar. L.A. fell 72-84 to the Sacramento Kings on July 14.
Darius Morris led the Lakers with 17 points while Josh Akognon scored an impressive 25 points off the bench for Sacramento.
Andrew Goudelock once again put up a solid performance for L.A., tallying 11 points, four rebounds and one steal. Although his totals were satisfactory, however, Goudelock continues to have a low shooting percentage; he landed only 3-of-14 from the field against Sacramento.
The team as a whole struggled offensively once again, shooting only 31 percent overall and 16 percent from the three-point line. The Lakers battled throughout the evening, but Akognon and the Kings were unstoppable in the fourth quarter, and L.A. went 0-2 for the summer.
