Lakers Fall To 0-2 With A 100-91 Loss To The Kings

"Mike Brown tried to put on a brave front. He didn't care if there were cowbells in his ear.

"That's all right," the Lakers' coach said before Monday's game against Sacramento. "I lived on a farm growing up."

Noise turned out to be the least of the Lakers' problems.

They were run ragged by the younger and more determined Kings, 100-91, at Power Balance Pavilion.

Two games, two losses, two fourth-quarter fizzles.

Unlike their come-from-ahead loss to Chicago on Sunday, the Lakers couldn't quite close a 15-point gap in the fourth quarter against Sacramento. They pulled within two with 4:24 to play but failed from there.

They looked old and slow and appeared to really missed Andrew Bynum, sidelined ? two more games before his league-imposed suspension ends.

"We still have a good-enough team to compete better than what we did [Monday]. That's what's disappointing," Brown said.

The fun doesn't end yet for the Lakers. They play a third game in as many days Tuesday against Utah at Staples Center.

Kobe Bryant had 29 points on 10-for-24 shooting and Metta World Peace had one of his best games in forever, scoring 19 points on eight-for-14 shooting.

But only one other Lakers player, Pau Gasol, finished in double-figure scoring, and that was after a mere two points in the first half. Gasol had 15 points and nine rebounds."
