Against an explosive Warrior team, the Lakers needed plenty of offense and Brown led the way with 27 points for our Lakers. Every Lakers player starter hit double figures, which was a must tonight as they really only rotated 8 players.
The key tonight was the Lakers perimeter defense as they held the Warrior guards Corey Maggette and Stephen Curry to a combined 9 of 37 shooting!
The Lakers also out rebounded the Warriors 53 to 36 mostly due to Lamar’s 18 off the bench.
Biedren’s was never really a factor tonight as he was in foul trouble all night long. It was a really sloppy games on both ends, but the Lakers great defense helped hide their 19 turnovers.
Now, the bests of the day…
Top 3 Laker Performers –
1) Brown had 27 points and 10 boards.
2) Bynum had 21 points on 8 of 11 shooting.
3) Fisher had 11 points, but contested many jump shots to hold Curry to one of his worst games of the season.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Sasha was scoreless tonight in 17 minutes.
Play of the Night: Brown’s entire game. Kobe can sit the rest of the month if Shannon keeps this up.
What to Look for Next Game: The Lakers host Boston in a huge game Thursday night. Should be a low scoring game.
