Just got back from vacation, and with me getting back to blogging it’s nice to see the Lakers resume their winning ways as well. While the rest of the teams are talking trades and L.A.’s other team is punching people, the Lake Show just does its thing.
The big thing that I took away from this game is that even without a scoring eruption from any one player, the Lakers can still win. Lamar Odom led the six scorers in double figures with 15, but his 20 rips were what really impressed me. Pau Gasol’s triple-double probably was the most impressive performance of the game. So much for Kenny and Reggie acting like he’s not a passer during the dunk contest. We even had a Van Morrison sighting!
