The Lakers came up big in the Mile High City Friday night, knocking off a quality Nuggets team and registering their best road win of the year. Not that there are too many to choose from, but best is best, right?
Among the topics of conversation on tonight's edition of Lakers Late Night:
A big night for Andrew Bynum. Maybe he was worried people thought someone else should start at center for the Western Conference in this year's All-Star Game?
Balance. Kobe Bryant didn't shoot well, but was excellent as a distributor. Pau Gasol had 17 rebounds. Derek Fisher chipped in with 10 points. Metta World Peace was big defensively. Just about everyone did something positive to help the team.
Andrew Goudelock continues to provide punch off the bench, scoring 13 points Friday.
The significance of starting the trip with a win.
