Josh Hart hit the first Lakers 3-pointer of the season late in the third quarter. The Lakers opened the game missing their first 15 attempts from behind the arc. Perimeter shooting could be problematic for the Lakers this season although the front office is banking on the likes of Hart, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Kyle Kuzma to improve their shooting this season.
