91026224AB009_NUGS_LAKERSNot quite what I expected tonight from the Lakers. Mainly with D.J.’s block party and Lamar’s three point shooting, the Lakers took care of the Nuggets easily Thursday night down in Anaheim.

This was an impressive performance for the Lakers with both Bynum and Pau out. Only four Lakers hit double figures, but they still managed to get well over 100 points.

With one preseason game left before Tuesday’s crosstown battle, the Lakers look ready to defend their title. I’ll end it here since it is still the preseason…

Now, the bests of the day…

Top 3 Laker Performers

1) We all know Kobe and Lamar can ball, so let’s give it up for DJ, who despite his terrible shot attempts, he still had 8 points and 7 blocks! Impressive blocks too!

2) Lamar was raining from outside with 5 threes, he took care of business tonight.

3) Powell also played well tonight. Hope he can keep up this play all year and give us depth this year inside.

Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Luke had 4 turnovers in limited minutes :(

Play of the Night: D.J.’s final block. Amazing stuff!

What to Look for Next Game: Final preseason game!

    It’s all good. We’ll get ya’ll in the playoffs this year. Bet on that!!!!!

      Cool K-Mart….we’d love to punk the Thuggets again!

      I just don’t think you can give us as much competition this year. You lost too many pieces and your bench is just not as good this year. Portland and San Antonio just leap frogged over you and you’ll be lucky to finish 4th or 5th in the West.

    It is all good. Lakers will be in the playoffs. You can bet on that. Back 2 Back.

    Kmart sad the Nuggets are a better team then the Lakers did not look like it last night and that was without Pau & Andrew and there full compliment of straters. I also notice Carmelo will not be able to bully or push Ron around. Look for the Nuggets to be a lower seed this year right now they are 3/7 pct 0.429 and the Lakers are 6/7 pct 0.857 the top of the Western Conference 2nd in the leagur behind Orlando. Look for a repeat in the finals with the Lakers winning it all again’ don’t bet on a finals with Cleveland or Boston against the Lakers. LA will be the team to beat in the West and Orlando in the East.
