NBA scores: Lakers lose again, Clippers rise

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

The Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Utah Jazz to fall to last place in the Western Conference, while the Los Angeles Clippers beat the San Antonio Spurs to stay on top of the Pacific Division.

The Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers are going in opposite directions at the beginning of the 2012-13 NBA regular season. The Lakers are now 1-4 on the season after dropping another game to the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, falling 95-86. Meanwhile, the Clippers improved to 3-2 on the season as they rocked the San Antonio Spurs 106-84.

On the other side of the Pacific Division, all other teams won. The Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 106-96 to keep pace with the Clippers. The Sacramento Kings held off the Detroit Pistons 105-103 to improve to 2-3. The Phoenix Suns went into Charlotte and knocked off the Bobcats 117-110 to also improve to 2-3.

With the Jazz, Nuggets, Suns and Kings all winning on Wednesday night, the Lakers are currently alone in last place in the Western Conference at 1-4. That is probably not what you were expecting to start this season.
