Not 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!
