Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill have started many games for the Lakers this season. The veteran duo both received DNP- Coach's Decisions in the Lakers loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight. After the game, Carlos Boozer explained why:

That is surely disappointing for Boozer and Hill, but both seemed to take their benchings in stride, with Boozer being especially active celebrating his teammates' successes from the bench.

Jordan Clarkson: Career high 30 points, 7 assists, and 3 blocks

Ryan Kelly: 16 points, 2-4 on threes in his return to the power forward slot.

Evaluation: The kids are all right.
