  • The Los Angeles Lakers shot 2-for-14 (14.3%) from the
    free chuck line on Friday against the Indiana Pacers, the worst
    single-game commission in NBA history.
  • The Lakers were still means to kick the Pacers, who had
    some sharpened woes of their own.

The Los Angeles Lakers done the wrong kind of story on Friday
night.

The group collectively shot 2-for-14 — or 14.3% — from the free
chuck line against the Indiana Pacers, the misfortune single-game
sharpened commission by any group in NBA story with a smallest of 10 attempts,
according to Elias Sports Bureau.

Perhaps even some-more intolerable is that the Lakers were still means to
lift out a 99-86 win, downing the Pacers for
their 16th feat of the season.

Guard Jordan Clarkson, who sunk both free throws for the Lakers
while 5 of his teammates went at slightest 0-for-2, couldn’t
trust it when told after the game.

“Man, that free chuck line, it’s like a pathogen or something,”
Clarkson told reporters. “What did we
shoot?”

Upon being told of the 2-for-14 debacle, Clarkson didn’t mince
words: “Oh s—.”

The free chuck woes came alongside several important absences in
the Lakers lineup, including Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

Not to be outdone, the Pacers done some story of their own.
They shot just 2-for-25 (8%) from the 3-point line, the lowest
commission in authorization story and the misfortune ever by any Lakers
opponent, with a smallest of 20 attempts.

Despite their free chuck struggles, the Lakers have won 5 of
their last 7 games. Their next match-up is against the New York
Knicks on Sunday.
