You know life is good when you are watching Mbenga block a shot which leads to a Luke Walton jumper.
The Lakers blew out another opponent Sunday night at Staples. This one was a result of great passing and team defense. The Lakers held the Raptors to only 37% from the field and outrebounded Toronto 54 to 36.
The Lakers dished out 34 asssits as a team, and had 19 turnovers, mostly due to sloppiness in the fourth.
The Lakers are simply blowing out playoff teams left and right now. The difference in this game clearly was size as Bynum and Pau destoryed the bigs of Toronto in the paint.
Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker Performers –
1) Kobe was very efficient tonight. 23 points on 9-14 shooting. He also had 7 assists and 5 boards.
2) Bynum just overpowered Bosh tonight. 18 points and 10 rebounds says some, but not all of how effective Bynum was. Bosh was held to 12 and 6.
3) Pau also proved to be too much inside tonight. 24 points on 10-17 shooting and 9 rebounds.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Farmar was very sloppy at the end. I know the game was out of reach, but no reason to be that careless. 5 turnovers and 3-9 shooting.
Play of the Game: I like to oop to Pau during the Lakers run.
What to Look for Next Game: Lakers hit the road to Indiana. Look for Luke to get some time in the fourth again.
