The NBA preseason game continues as the Los Angeles Lakers wins against the Sacramento Kings with a score of 69-75. This is the first victory of the Lakers since the NBA preseason started. Brook Lopez and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led the Lakers in winning the last night’s game. Kings’ Zach Randolph played an amazing all-around game last night but it was not enough for his team to get the victory. The Los Angeles Lakers took the lead in the 3 of the 4 quarters. Although the Kings tried to bounce back on the third quarter, the Lakers remained to be leading until the end of the game.

Zach Randolph scored 16 points

Randolph collected 16 points (7-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt), 6 rebounds and 3 assists across 29 minutes in Sunday's preseason loss to the Lakers. The 36-year old player was held out of Friday’s game to rest, but the veteran power forward returned to have a solid performance on Sunday. It was the first extended actions from Randolph with his new team this preseason.

Randolph signed a two-year contract with the Sacramento Kings for $24 million deal earlier this year. The veteran power forward enters his 17th season in the NBA league. Since his debut, Randolph garnered an average of 16.8 points, .3 blocks, .7 steals, 1.8 assists, and 9.3 Rebounds Per Game.

Brook Lopez made his preseason debut

Brook Lopez looked very good in their game against the Sacramento Kings. Lopez ended the game with 12 points and 3 rebounds. Lopez has been struggling with back spasms through training camp, but it looks like as if he has put the problems behind him as he led the Kings to win the last night’s game.

If the veteran center can continue to play consistently; he will surely get some playing time next season for the Lakers.

A subpar shooting performance

Garret Temple played an incredible game on Sunday after he was given the night off in their last game against the San Antonio Spurs. Temple started and posted 12 points (4-13 FG, 4-4 FT), 4 rebounds, 1assist, three steals and 1 block across 34 minutes in their last game.

In 2016, Temple signed with Sacramento Kings. He made his debut for the Kings in their season opener on October 26, scoring 12 points in just less than 18 minutes off the bench. Earlier this year, Temple was ruled out for two to three weeks after an MRI revealed a partial tear on his left biceps. Since he made his debut in the NBA league, Temple averaged 7.8 points, .4 blocks, 1.3 steals, 2.6 assists, and 2.8 rebounds per game.
