Just when I thought Luke Walton was the worst person to give the ball with the game on the line (I'm sure you all remember the time Kobe got him an open shot and he passed it), I stand corrected. Jeff Foster now takes that title.
Talk about a game of runs! First it was all Warriors -- then all Lakers, then the Warriors came back, then the Lakers opened it up -- and a few more of those and a Laker victory.
I really thought it was all over when Kobe caught fire. Instead, it was all David West and Chris Paul. When Kobe caught fire, the Hornets had no answer...
The Lakers reclaimed the best record in the league with a Sunday night win over Portland.
A great start for the new year! The Lakers opened 2009 much like they closed 2008 -- with a win.
The Lakers snapped the Celtics 19 game winning streak as they dominated the final minutes on their way to a 92-83 win at Staples. Fans who spent anywhere from $175 to $5,000 for their tickets got their money's worth today!
The Lakers handed the Hornets only their eight loss of the season as they get ready to face the Celtics on Thursday.
This was a fun one to watch! The Lakers erased a 15 point halftime deficit to beat the Knicks 116-114 in a high scoring affair.
The Lakers came away with their 20th win of the season tonight at Staples Center.
Before I get into the game, check out these stats: Lakers shot 49%, Suns 50%. Lakers had 43 boards, Suns 40. Lakers had 30 assists, Suns 28. Lakers and Suns each had 14 turnovers.
We got outplayed tonight -- it's that simple. They shot well (49%), we didn't (40%). They took care of the ball with only 10 turnovers, while we were erratic.
Is the Lakers defense that good or are the Bucks that offensively challenged? The Bucks shot 38% from the game and scored only 31 points the entire first half.
It's a lot more fun when we are the team coming back in the fourth. Nevertheless, the Lakers still came out with the W Friday night in D.C.
It was a high scoring affair tonight as both teams were shooting the ball well. The Lakers shot 51% from the field, but lost the game with poor rebounding and turnovers. Giving up 50 boards and 16 turnovers is not a winning formula.
