Stung: Turnovers, free throws, bad calls help Lakers even series with Hornets
The New Orleans Hornets (1-1) went into Los Angeles to face the Lakers (1-1) in a series that no-one really gave them a chance in. After stealing the first game of the series on Sunday, the Lakers knew they were in for a much bigger fight than expected. Even with a game two loss, the Hornets showed they still mean business.
On Wednesday night, the Lakers pulled off an 87-78 win over the Hornets in a game that was filled with turnovers, a lot of missed free throws, and plenty of bad calls by the referees. Still, the Hornets managed to lose by only nine points on the road and return home to “The Hive” on Friday night for game three.
