Jordan Clarkson scored 17 points for the Lakers (1-4).
STAR WATCH: Kobe Bryant scored 10 points on 4-for-12 shooting before leaving in the third quarter with a bruise on his left leg.

KINGS: Rajon Rondo had 11 points and six assists.
LAKERS: Lou Williams scored 16 points off the bench.
RESTING UP: DeMarcus Cousins sat out in part because Sacramento coach George Karl wanted to remind his players not to rely too much on the All-Star center.
UP NEXT: Sacramento faces New Orleans at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky -- Cousins' college town -- on Saturday. The Lakers face the Warriors in San Diego on Saturday.
