Chris Kaman took a nap on empty Lakers’ bench during game
The Los Angeles Lakers had so few players available for Wednesday night’s game in Cleveland, Chris Kaman decided to take advantage of all the leg room.
With the Lakers up by over 20 points on the Cavaliers in the third quarter, Kaman took a load off and laid down across all the empty chairs, giving us one of the funnier images of the season.
What’s crazy is how few players the Lakers had for the game and how much misfortune they experienced.
The Lakers began the game with only eight players available. Nick Young suffered a knee injury in the second quarter, Jordan Farmar suffered a calf injury in the fourth quarter, and Kaman fouled out. That left the Lakers with exactly five players.
Things got really interesting when Robert Sacre fouled out with under four minutes left. Because the Lakers only had five players, Sacre was allowed to stay in the game but the Lakers were charged with a technical foul, per NBA rules.
I've never seen this situation before!! Did anybody know about this rule!? #LakersvsCavs
