Los Angeles Lakers: Quinn Cook explodes for season-high 22 in loss to Magic

Last night, the Los Angeles Lakers lost to a team below .500 for the first time this season.

The Orlando Magic took the lead in the first quarter and kept it through the fourth. The Lakers put themselves ahead in the final quarter but struggled to hold on and lost by 1.

In such a disappointing loss, Quinn Cook was a bright spot for LA. He and Troy Daniels were the unexpected heroes of the game as players lately out of the rotation, who got a boost of confidence in the recent absence of LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
