Did you really expect anything else tonight? How this Clippers team has 9 wins, I don’t know. The Lakers took advantage of the short-handed Clippers in all facets. They shot 54% from the field, compared to 39% by the Clippers. Imagine what the score would have been if the Clippers didn’t grab 18 offensive rebounds.
The Lakers also only had 14 turnovers, which sadly is good for them. The Lakers hit 10 threes on the night, mostly from Luke and Sasha. It was just a great all around team effort tonight as the Lakers got 30 assists on their way to a 21 point rout. Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker performers:
1) Kobe had 32 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, and shot a good percentage. Only downer was his 4 turnovers. His +/- was 31 points tonight for the Lakers.
2) Bynum had 14 points on 7-9 shooting. He also had 9 boards, 3 assists, and 6 blocks! Held Kaman to 6-19 FG’s.
3) Luke finally didn’t make me want to puke. 6-6 FG’s including 3 three pointers. He also had 0 turnovers in 26 minutes. Great game Luke.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest):
I can’t really find a Laker that played awful tonight. Maybe Mihm was the worst. He has 1-3 and had 3 rebounds in 14 minutes.
Key play of the game: Fisher’s oop to Bynum!
What to look for next game: A tough game. This isn’t the same team we blew out a couple weeks back. Should be a fun one. Game is Tuesday night @ 5:30 PM.
