Notebook: Lakers 115, Suns 99


Dan Arritt, for NBA.com
Posted Mon Mar 31, 2014 1:22 AM - Updated Mon Mar 31, 2014 1:24 AM

THE FACT: The Lakers have won three straight home games for the first time since November.

THE LEAD: Thoughts of making the playoffs disappeared months ago for the Lakers, maybe as far back as last summer, when Kobe Bryant was three months into his rehabilitation from a torn Achilles tendon and Dwight Howard was packing his bags for Houston. But that doesn't mean the Lakers can't spoil the postseason hopes of others and they did that remarkably well Sunday night, blowing out the Phoenix Suns 115-99 at Staples Center.

THE STAT: The Lakers outscored the Suns 22-17 in fast-break points after Phoenix came in averaging an NBA-leading 18.8 such points a game.

QUOTABLE: "Guys are learning how to be prominent players every night and they've never been that before."
-- Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni

TURNING POINT: The Suns looked lost from the opening tip and were chasing 13 points with about a minute left in the first quarter. They made a run to take a brief one-point lead just before the midway point of the second quarter, but a 17-0 run by L.A. later in the quarter proved to be the turning point, as the Lakers took a 61-43 lead into the half. The Suns ended the third quarter on a 9-2 run to get within 15 but never got back within single digits.

HOT: The Lakers played their fourth straight game without starting center Pau Gasol (vertigo symptoms), giving Chris Kaman a chance to strut his stuff in anticipation of impending free agency this summer. After playing just the first six minutes of Friday's 36-point loss to the Timberwolves, Kaman didn't pass up any early opportunities against the Suns. The difference this time was he made his shots. That forced D'Antoni to keep him on the floor and Kaman ultimately finished with season highs of 28 points, 17 rebounds and six assists. Jodie Meeks was the other offensive star for the Lakers, scoring 22 points on just nine field-goal attempts. He benefited from 10 trips to the free throw line, where he made nine. The Lakers shot 22-for-24 from the stripe as a team.

QUOTABLE II: "[Kaman] did a great job. Anytime we needed a bucket, he'd get it."
-- Mike D'Antoni

NOT: The Suns put themselves in an early hole by missing 19 of their first 25 field-goal attempts, including all 11 from 3-point range. They ended up shooting 38.5 percent from the field and 22.2 percent from beyond the arc. Eric Bledsoe had a particularly bad night, shooting 1-for-9 and scoring 10 points with four turnovers and four assists. He was yanked early in the third quarter and replaced by Ish Smith, who ended up playing 24 minutes compared to Bledsoe's 29. Bledsoe wasn't alone at the back of the team bus, however. Channing Frye shot 1-for-7 and is 1-for-11 in the last two games. P.J. Tucker shot 2-for-8 and he and Frye combined to miss all seven of their tries from long range.

GOOD MOVE: The Lakers drafted Ryan Kelly with the 48th overall pick last June and he played like a late second rounder for most of the season. Sunday night may have represented a coming-out party, however. The 6-foot-10 forward from Duke finished with 17 points, five rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 30 minutes. Kelly's most impressive play came while defending an inbounds pass from Marcus Morris late in the game. He batted the pass away, picked the ball up on the Phoenix side of the floor, dribbled it behind his back to avoid a defender and then scored on a dunk to push the lead back to 15.

BAD MOVE: With the Grizzlies and Warriors losing shortly before the Suns did, Phoenix missed out on a golden opportunity to creep up on sixth-place Golden State and put Memphis even further in its rear-view mirror. The schedule only gets tougher for the Suns, as four of their next five games are against teams ahead of them in the standings.

NOTABLE: Lakers guard Kent Bazemore received a cut under his right eye after taking an elbow from Suns point guard Goran Dragic midway through the fourth quarter. He did not return. ... Phoenix scored 18 points in the game's first 14 minutes and 19 in the next 3:10.

UP NEXT: For the Lakers, Tuesday vs. Portland, Wednesday @ Sacramento, Friday vs. Dallas. For the Suns, Wednesday vs. L.A. Clippers, Friday @ Portland, Sunday vs. Oklahoma City.
