The Clippers defeated their rivals 105-102. If we examine the game closely, the Lakers were doing well in the first half thanks to Dwight Howard’s performance. Previously, because of his prior performances, he was given limited minutes. But his performance in the last game was quite impressive.

But even with James’s scoring and Dwight’s game, the team still couldn’t win against the Clippers. As in the last quarter, the Lakers were very close to winning the game, but James passed the ball to Carmelo and he missed the shot. With the buzzer ringing, the Lakers lost.
