But Kobe Bryant’s second-to-last home game would end like so many others this season.
He cooled after scoring 10 first-quarter points and the Lakers clinched the worst record of their 68-year existence with a 91-81 loss to the Clippers at Staples Center.
Beyond Bryant, the story lines were pretty slim for the Lakers (16-62), who officially couldn’t match last season’s nasty 21-61 campaign after losing to the Clippers an 11th consecutive time.
