Finally a fourth quarter dominated by the Lakers. Despite Von Wafers 23 points on 10-14 shooting, yes the same Von that we waived, and many other teams waived, the Lakers won 105-100 at the Toyota Center Tuesday night.
Six Lakers hit double figures and the Lakers really took care of the ball with only 7 turnovers. A very clean game as they shot 51% as well.
Tonight’s game was full of mismatches and the Lakers capitalized in the end. Rarely, can you allow a team to shoot 53% at home and only force 11 turnovers and come out on top.
Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker Performers –
1) Kobe saves the day again. Although he had 19 misses tonight, he had one big make which proved to be the game winner.
2) Ariza continues to play well. 14 points with only one miss.
3) As good as Vlad Rad was, Lamar gave us that spark off the bench. Glad to see him back.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Bynum fouled too much. He did a good job early on Yao, but he got outplayed in the second half.
Play of the Game: Kobe’s three.
What to Look for Next Game: A low scoring game. Lakers vs. Spurs for the first time since we beat them in the ’08 Playoffs.
