Kentavious Caldwell-Pope says he avoided any serious injury with his right Achilles tendon. "I was relieved when the X-ray came back negative," the guard said. "It was good. Hopefully it's short term, but we're just going to see tomorrow what I can do. I just didn't feel 100 percent [when he tested it after halftime]. I couldn't move how I wanted to move so I kind of just shut it down. It's not serious. No pop, no nothing."

Julius Randle hit 8-of-11 shots –- at one point making seven straight shots in the second quarter -- and scored 16 points. However, all his points came in the first half as he played just nine minutes in the second half with the game getting out of hand. Randle also only had one rebound and Luke Walton said the Lakers needed Randle to set the tone physically for them. "He was good," Walton said. "Obviously with Julius, I've said this all year, my expectations for him are high. And one of the things I challenged him to do, we have a young team, he's our physical presence, he's our guy that needs to bully other teams and he did that offensively tonight... Defensively, not just he, but we got pushed around. We need him to be not necessarily our tough guy, but our guy when we're getting pushed around, pushes back a little bit."

After saying that the Lakers let Memphis "punk us all over the floor" on Monday, Luke Walton said OKC "beat us up" and that the Lakers "weren't tough" as Los Angeles surrendered 21 offensive rebounds. The Lakers were out-rebounded 54-30 as Steven Adams set the tone with his 21 points and 10 rebounds (seven offensive). The Lakers' starting five totaled eight rebounds. "We weren't tough," Walton said. "They beat us up... the way Adams was doing whatever he wanted out there on the floor, we're not really giving ourselves a chance to win the game… We've got to realize certain teams like Memphis, OKC, Minnesota, these are big, strong men. We've got to be ready to fight and unfortunately we were not tonight."

Warriors beat Bulls 119-112. Niko Mirotic has another big night with 24 points in 27 minutes. Big question for Bulls now is the health of Kris Dunn. He took a hard fall on his face after a dunk late in the 4th. He was bleeding and appeared to crack a few teeth.

It was a pretty complete, and dominant, second half for the Thunder against the Lakers, outscoring them 54-36 to pull away impressively. In two meetings against the Lakers, the Thunder have a plus-61 margin. In this one, it was Carmelo Anthony who cooked, carving up any defender in front of him as Steven Adams manhandled the Lakers on the interior. Westbrook and George didn't shoot it well, but it didn't matter as the talent gap between the teams couldn't have been more obvious.

In two meetings against Oklahoma City without Lonzo Ball, the Lakers have lost by 37 and 24 points, respectively. The Lakers are now 0-8 when Ball is out. Besides Ball pushing the pace, creating ball movement and unselfish hockey assists on offense, the Lakers really miss their rookie point guard on defense. Entering tonight, the Lakers surrendered 107.8 points per game and 44.6% shooting with Ball. Without Ball, that swelled to 124.1 points and 51.9% shooting per game.

Adding more pain to this night for the Lakers: Kyle Kuzma is done for the game with a left hand joint sprain.
