The Lakers losing a game is hardly news, but Lou Williams scoring a career-high 44 points against the top contending Thunder will do.
“He’s been a scorer since he came out of the womb,” Durant said. “He hit four or five shots falling out of bounds in the corner, and then he hit some transition 3s. It wasn’t like our defense was bad. He made shots tonight.”
With a bunch of 40 point games under his belt over 20 seasons, Kobe Bryant added.
“Man, he got in a great groove,” Bryant said. “His pull-up jumper started working and he got to the basket, drawing contact. He just got in a fantastic rhythm.”
