Research Notes

  • AccuScore simulations gave the Lakers less than a 0.5% chance of coming back last night to win the game. It was the least likely comeback for any team this NBA season.

  • The Lakers finished the game on a 20-0 run, holding the Hornets scoreless for the final 6:30 of the game.

  • The Lakers trailed the Hornets by as many as 25 in this game, their 3rd-largest comeback since Kobe Bryant joined the team and their largest in more than 10 years.
