Perkins did not return to the game, finishing with two points and an assist in just 2:26.
Perkins was replaced by Omer Asik, who went scoreless with one rebound in 10 minutes. Asik's minutes were expected to be limited because he was playing for the first time this season after working his way back from a right calf strain. So Anthony Davis played some minutes at center, along with 7-foot-2 reserve Alexis Ajinca.
