The Los Angeles Lakers scored 14 points in the first quarter against the Orlando Magic. They were also blocked nine times while shooting below 30 percent from the field. It was bad.
The only positive? Ivica Zubac (and his hook shot) got some minutes:

Zubac has shown glimpses of promise since being drafted by the Lakers, both in the D-League and with the parent team. The 19-year old is still a ways away from reaching his full potential, but moves like that are why the Lakers, and by extension their fans, are so high on him.
