Replay: Lakers Late Night vs. Portland

It's official, as the Lakers machine seems well-oiled, winning 12 of 13 coming out of the break, so too does Lakers Late Night. Once again, the thing processed properly and we can bring you the replay of Sunday's show, for those who may have missed it or simply want to re-live the moment following an exciting 84-80 win over Portland at Staples. And for your reading pleasure, here's the postgame breakdown, and the transcript of Sunday's in-game Lakers Live! chat.

Among the topics covered:

  • Kobe Bryant's big final four minutes, and why he seemed to bust out playoff-level emotion in mid-March.

  • Another high end defensive performance from the Lakers, despite losing Andrew Bynum to suspension.

  • Whether the two-game penalty on Bynum for his hard foul on Michael Beasley Friday night is fair.

  • The continuing evolution of viewer/chat-ee Robert Weber's opinion of us.
