I hope Cleveland was watching ESPN tonight, because that was one of the better Laker performances all year. 52% shooting en route to 108 points.
The Lakers moved the ball well, took care of the boards, and nailed dagger after dagger to this Utah team.
Seven Lakers had 9 points or more, and the bench really played well, hitting shots and playing solid defense.
Bynum continued to see little playing time, but it didn’t matter as LAmar just played superb.
I think the Lakers really just destroyed any morale Utah had left and Monday might just be another blowout.
Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker Performers -
1) Kobe made EVERYTHING tonight. Those shots were insane. 38 points and 6 boards for Kobe.
2) Lamar did everything we needed. 10 points, 15 boards, and 6 assists.
3) Shannon Brown had 10 points, but did the little things tonight.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Pau was too soft tonight and had 4 turnovers.
What to Look for Next Game: More of what you saw tonight. Hopefully Bynum gets some time on the court.
