The Lakers got back on the right track on Sunday, taking out the Grizzlies with relative ease. Sasha Vujacic dunked again and Andrew Bynum lead the Lakers with 18. Plus, he ddn’t tear up his knee, like he always seems to do against the Grizz. Payback for the Pau Gasol trade, I suppose. Something. Thankfully, Diaper Drew is doing OK still.
Make sure you check out that behind-the-back Luke Walton pass to Shannon Brown for the tomahawk jam, too. Luke had eight assists, and has been a passing machine in the Triangle and on the break as of late. He also had a slick between-the-legs pass to the Machine for a jumper. Trevor Ariza also played some good, aggressive basketball, taking it to the rack early and often. That’s good, because we can’t have complacent jumpshooting Trev heading into the postseason.
