Metta World Peace had the ball in his hands with the crowd on its feet for the Lakers’ final possession in what might be his final game at Staples Center.
And he let the shot clock run out.
World Peace scored a team-leading 18 points in the second half, and Los Angeles extended its longest winning streak in four years to five games with a 108-96 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night.
