|Austin Reaves: Posts career-best scoring total|
Reaves ended with 19 points (7-10 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and three rebounds in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 125-116 loss to the Kings.
The Scoop: Reaves was one of only three Lakers to finish with double-digit scoring in the contest, joining LeBron James (34 points) and Malik Monk (22 points). The rookie's point total was the highest of his career, and he reached the mark largely from beyond the arc, where he knocked down four of seven tries. Reaves has been inconsistent at times and doesn't produce much in terms of peripheral stats, but the fact that he has earned valuable minutes and has enjoyed some strong performances, speaks volumes considering the minimal role he was expected to fill coming into the season.
