Bobcats led 78-60.

Fourth Quarter
The Lakers started the fourth quarter with 5 fouls in the first 70 seconds. Kobe was frustrated the entire night. No one played defense in the fourth with allowed the Bobcats to extend the lead to 28 points.

The Lakers bench played extremely well to end the game. Derrick Character and Devin Ebanks were getting to their rebounds and making the best of their opportunity.

Lakers need some rest. They have been a combined 5-for-35 from beyond the arc in their 2 losses during the road trip. Good thing All-Star break starts on Wednesday night after the Cavs game.
