Lakers vs. Jazz final score: Nick Young goes off in 119-104 victory

Swagtastic times for the Lakers. It wasn't 51 points but Nick Young had a career-high scoring outburst against the Utah Jazz in a 104-119 victory. Swagimus Prime led the Lakers to their first victory in April and snapped a seven-game losing streak. One more game to go, so why not let Young flex a bit. He's been one of the lone bright spots of the season, even if frustrating at times. The Lakers used Young's monstrous 17-point fourth quarter to fuel the rare victory. Los Angeles outscored Utah 33-18 in the fourth. The victory solidifies the team will finish the season above the Jazz in the...

Add two Lakers to injured roster

Kent Bazemore and Nick Young are hurt against the Clippers. The Lakers now have more injured players (eight) than healthy ones (seven). Kent Bazemore cried a little bit. Nick Young planted his face in a towel for a long time.

Toll of season weighing on Nick Young

LOS ANGELES -- For a guy who showed up to work on a Monday morning a couple of weeks ago sporting a smile and cracking jokes despite having his home burglarized the night before, it was pretty striking to see Nick Young on the bench during Sunday's 120-97 loss to the Clippers so fed up he had to bury his face in a towel. His Lakers, the hometown team he always dreamed of being a part of, were en route to their 52nd loss of the season, tying the 1974-75 squad for the most single-season losses in franchise history with five games still to go.

LOS ANGELES -- Nick Young did his best to keep the Los Angeles Lakers' "Player Haters Ball" going for another night. But it turns out the purple and gold's spoiler party was short lived. Young started the game 8-for-8 from the field and finished with a season-high 40 points, but the Lakers were unable to replicate the beating they gave the surging Phoenix Suns on Sunday or the tough times they gave the Trail Blazers a couple of weeks ago in Portland.
