The Lakers came out the door hot, but they cooled as fast as they warmed

Although André Drummond was unable to complete his first game with the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday, his debut for the team is still recorded in the history books as a loss, as the Milwaukee Bucks beat them 112-97

With LeBron James and Davis out, the Lakers weren’t supposed to win Wednesday’s game In fact, there will be very few games where the Lakers are favored to win However, the team gave their fans a ray of hope with the way they started the game

In the first quarter, the Lakers made eight of their 13 3-point attempts, the most three-pointers they’ve scored in any quarter of the season The Bucks aren’t exactly known for their perimeter defense, but the Lakers aren’t known for their perimeter shooting, either. In other words, it was a good start for them

Unfortunately, the Lakers simply forgot how to shoot after that first quarter and the Bucks remembered they had an MVP twice on their roster. And if that wasn’t enough to get them in, Drummond had to leave the game early due to a big toe bruise he sustained in the third quarter. It was Lakers night until it wasn’t

The Lakers will end another day as the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference, but their cushion is reduced to just half a game with a loss to the Bucks and it could disappear altogether if the Denver Nuggets beat the LA Clippers Thursday

That’s not to say Lakers fans should be cheering on the Clippers to win – things aren’t that bad just yet – but the Lakers will definitely need help wherever they can get it while James and Davis are absent
