Coach Darvin Ham was pleased with how the Lakers overcame a 27-point deficit on the road to stun the Mavericks.
“The guys never got discouraged,” Ham told reporters. “They had that look of frustration, but it wasn’t a look of defeatedness on their faces. Everybody just wanted to stay encouraged.”
The Lakers started 0-of-15 on 3-pointers, but wound up outscoring Dallas by a 62-32 in the paint.
