The Lakers’ season opener didn’t go very well

Sports

The Lakers went through an agonizing, epic fail of a loss in their season opener vs. the Timberwolves. The worst part wasn’t that they lost — the worst part was how they lost.

Everything looked OK from the jump. HELL YEAH LAKERS ARE BACK KOBE IS BACK EVERYONE GET HYPED. Nick Young did this after the first quarter to put LA up, 31-22:

Kobe had 15 points, hitting 6 of 13 shots, at the half.

The Lakers were outscored by 2 points in the third quarter, but they still held the lead going into the fourth quarter. Then…

EVERYTHING COLLAPSED AND BURNED.

The Timberwolves chomped up a 16-point deficit to win by 1 POINT, 112-111. The Lakers’ high-scorer in the fourth quarter was Jordan Clarkson, who had five points. The entire LA roster notched either a 0 or below-0 plus/minus except for Julius Randle who tallied a 1.

Afterwards, coach Byron Scott told the media:

Oh wait, that sounds familiar…

(check the year on that Serena Winters tweet)

Sigh. Welp. All I can say is SWAGGY’S STILL SWAGGY.
