Hope everyone had a great All-Star weekend and congrats to Kobe and Shaq on their MVP performances Sunday night.
The Lakers opened the second half of the season just like they finished the first half. Lamar continued to dominate the glass, Pau continued to do a bit of everything, and the Lakers bench came through once again.
It was also nice to see the two new Lakers get some action in tonights blowout over Atlanta. After getting beat in the first quarter, the rest of the game was all Lakers, excluding garbage time. The Lakers blew it open in the third scoring 41 points. Six Lakers scored double figures tonight, with Lamar the high scorer at only 15.
Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker Performers –
1) Lamar did everything tonight, including holding Josh Smith to only 13 points. Lamar had 15 points, 20 boards, 5 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks. WOW!
2) A triple double usually earns number one, but Pau will have to settle for number two tonight. 12, 13, and 10 for Pau. Great game!
3) Trevor was all over the place getting his hands on everything tonight. He only had 1 steal, but had many deflections.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Mihm shot 2 of 10 and had 3 turnovers.
Play of the Game: Brown’s block late in the game.
What to Look for Next Game: A high scoring fast paced game! Warriors tomorrow night!
