Let’s Go Lakers!
The Lakers hung on Sunday night to take a commanding 2-0 series lead to come another step closer to their first title in seven years!
Kobe led the way with 29, but several Lakers contributed to tonight’s big win.
The Lakers once again played superb defense for most of the game. They held Orlando to only 42% shooting for th game including 33% from behind the arc.
The Lakers forced 20 turnovers and did the little things to come on top tonight. While the Magic forwards were hot, the Laker guards were even hotter with 41 points from the backcourt!
Now, the bests of the day…
Top 3 Laker Performers –
1) Lamar stepped up big time to make up for Bynum’s terrible performance. 19 points on 9 shots!
2) Kobe did what we needed again. 29 points on 22 shots. He did have 7 of our 12 turnovers though.
3) Pau was a beast again. 24 points and 10 boards. He made 10 of 11 freethrows too!
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Bynum is a fouling machine! He had as many points as fouls
Play of the Night: Kobe’s dunk on the break.
What to Look for Next Game: A higher scoring game with less fouls.
