G Lou Williams tallied 38 points, seven assists and six rebounds for the short-handed Lakers (10-13), who lost their third in a row. Williams just missed posting back-to-back 40-point games; he scored 40 against the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday.Williams is the first Laker to produce 38 points or more in consecutive games since Kobe Bryant achieved the feat on March 8, 2014. Williams said the absence of injured Lakers D'Angelo Russell (sore right knee), Nick Young (calf strain), Larry Nance (right knee contusion) and Jose Calderon (right hamstring strain) forced him to shoulder more of a scoring load.Williams hit 13 of 27 shots, including 4 of 9 from behind the 3-point arc.Williams made a free throw for the 31st game in a row, a streak that stretches back to last season. It is the longest active streak for a reserve player.

C Andrew Bogut hurt his right knee in the first half Monday. The starting center was set to have an MRI exam Tuesday."We don't think it's terribly serious," Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. "From what I understand, it was hyperextended. The X-ray was clean, from the information that I got. We'll probably have more information in a day or so. At this point, it appears we dodged a bullet."Dallas isn't actively looking to trade Bogut, according to ESPN. The report added that stance could change depending on the Mavericks' playoff possibilities. Bogut, in a contract year, could fetch a first-round pick from a contender. Dallas is off to the worst start in the Mark Cuban ownership era.
