This was an entertaining Friday night game as they closed out the preseason like I hope they pull off Tuesday night vs Portland — only with Kobe in the lineup.

The Lakers moved the ball well on offense and shot extremely well at 55% for the game, with much thanks to Andrew. One of the only downers continues to be the turnover-prone Lakers. 23 turnovers tonight is just too many. They need to clean it up this weekend. Since it is a preseason game, I will keep it short.

Now, the bests of the night…

Top 3 Laker Performers

1) No Question, Bynum was unstoppable. 23 points, 3 blocks, and 8 boards in 29 minutes.

2) D Fish didn’t play much but he was efficient. 10 points, 5 boards, 5 assists. Solid shooting, Fish.

3) Farmar had 14 points, but had 7 turnovers, so I gotta go with the other Bruin Ariza who had nearly a double-double tonight and was active all game.

Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Chris Mihm — for finding a way to get hurt yet again. Doesn’t look too bad though.

Play of the Game: Ariza’s slam dunk.

What to look for Next Game: Look for a fast-paced exciting game. Lakers should take this one. If you need tickets for any games coming up, let me know. Great deals for the home opener at TLNtickets.com.

Go Lakers!!!

    Not just a dunk by Ariza. A facial. A messy facial.

  • Lakers 24 7

    Another falls into the list of facials by Ariza. Who’s next? GREG ODEN?

    Man I wish I got to watch this game. I couldn’t because it wasn’t on tv for me. F*ck I was pist. And wow it is going to suck not playing seattle anymore. This looks like a whole different team. At Least when we moved from minnesota to LA we kept our name. And wtf the thunder. They look like a d-league team. And the main reason why this sucks is because ice cube’s song “it was a good day,” is worthless now. The part were it says, “Left my n*gga’s house paid, picked up a bitch I was trying to f*ck since the 12th grade, it’s ironic, I got the brew, shes got the chronic, the LAKERS beat the supersonicks.” Man I played that song every time we beat seattle last season. D*mn that sucks.

    Sun Yue will be fine. He’s just a little lost. It’ll take him awhile to adjust. Recall Sasha in his first season (when he turned the ball over whenever he was on the floor).
