More March Madness with the Lakers as they hung on to another game full of streaks.
All five Lakers starters scored double figures. Pau led the way with 36 and every other Laker did their part tonight.
The key tonight again was defense as the Lakers forced 22 turnovers. The Lakers also got some help from the Nets as they shot only 8 of 17 from the stripe.
We do need more bench production though — 12 points on 4 of 19 shooting won’t get it done against better teams.
Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker Performers –
1) Pau easily makes #1 tonight with 36 points, 11 boards, 7 assists, 2 steals, and 2 blocks. Wish I had him on my fantasy team!
2) Fisher shot 8 of 12, had 4 assists and no turnovers. Also held Harris to 4-13 shooting.
3) Lamar did a bit of everything tonight ith 12 points and 11 boards.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Farmar missed everything tonight–1 for 7 shooting.
Play of the Game: Kobe’s behind the look pass to Gasol for the slam. LOOK OUT!
What to Look for Next Game: A day game on Sunday in Atlanta. High scoring game and another Laker road win?
