Lakers’ Sacre Stays in Game with Six Fouls

The Lakers were seemingly down to four players but beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, 119-108, with help from an obscure rule that kept Robert Sacre in Wednesday’s game after he picked up his sixth personal foul.

The Lakers started with only eight players in uniform, lost two because of health reasons (Nick Young, Jordan Farmar) and then another two because of fouls (Chris Kaman, Sacre).

He ( referee Jason Phillips) informed them that Sacre could stay on the court despite picking up his sixth foul on a drive by CJ Miles with 3:32 to play. The only remaining Lakers were already on the court — Wesley Johnson, Ryan Kelly, Steve Blake, Kendall Marshall — and a team cannot drop to four players if there are no other options.
