(TSX / STATS) -- LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Lakers needed a spark in the second half against the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday, and coach Luke Walton found it just down the bench.

He sent Julius Randle into the game at center and Josh Hart in at shooting guard, and the small lineup helped erase a 19-point deficit before Kentavious Caldwell-Pope provided the knockout punch down the stretch in Los Angeles' 103-94 victory at Staples Center.

"It took Julius and Josh Hart getting put in the game, two of our tougher players, to really spark the energy level, the effort level," Walton said. "Once we got it, we didn't turn it off."
