Amazing how fast the tide can turn. What looked like it might be among the team's uglier losses turned into arguably the most inspiring victory in a couple seasons.
Among the topics in a very busy show:
A spectacular fourth quarter defensively, and some very instructive words from Kobe Bryant after the game on what the game means for the Lakers.
Contributions from the bench. Jordan Hill, Devin Ebanks, and Steve Blake all came up big.
Andrew Bynum's reaction to sitting through the fourth quarter and OT. To his credit, it was much more positive than the last time this happened.
Metta World Peace, and his foul on James Harden. We play his postgame statement, and talk about what sort of discipline is likely coming from the league office.

(UPDATE: Mike Brown's postgame comments have also been added. Interesting stuff on Hill, Bynum, Kobe on Russell Westbrook, and more.)
