The Lakers continue to impress in the second half of road games with their 57th win tonight in Detroit.
Tonight was all about defense as the Lakers held the Pistons to shooting under 30% from the field and scoring one 77 points.
Kwame Brown looked like his old self with 2 points and 6 boards in 27 minutes.
The second quarter really stunk, but the Lakers bounced back.
The Lakers really did a bit of anything tonight with good shooting, good free throws, 23 assists to 13 turnovers and 8 steals as a team.
Let’s hope the Lakers can continue to play like this on the road, especially as we roll into April.
Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker Performers -
1) Kobe’s 30 points, 8 boards, and 7 assists were just too much for Detroit tonight.
2) Lamar did a bit of everything with 12 points, 10 boards, 7 assists and 3 steals.
3) Fisher hit some big shots and played solid defense all night.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Powell took some bad shots and the Lakers were outscored by 14 when he was on the court.
Play of the Game: Kobe’s last few plays in the fourth where he was basically toying with Detroit.
What to Look for Next Game: Friday night game in New Jersey. Should be another win.
