Wednesday night in Dallas, the Lakers did a lot that'll typically bring a loss on the road. Too many turnovers (17), too many offensive rebounds (21) allowed, too many free throws missed (13), to name the three biggest, and Kobe Bryant had a rough game, to boot. But thanks to an otherwise solid effort defensively and good work from Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum, and Derek Fisher, they managed to win anyway.
And a big win it was. We hit all the high points on tonight's edition of Lakers Late Night. Among them...
Are games like this a bad omen for Kobe (and therefore the Lakers) as Mike Brown struggles to manage his minutes?
Strong efforts from Gasol and Bynum. Are concerns about Pau's play a little overwrought, rumors and headlines notwithstanding?
Fisher blew up, with 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting. Is there hope of decent production going forward?
Thoughts on Thursday's game in Oklahoma City.
