Lakers Late Night Replay vs. New York Knicks, plus postgame video

I'm not going to say it's completely because of us, but since we've sort of figured out how to work the fancy new Lakers Late Night Machine, the purple and gold are undefeated.

You're welcome, Los Angeles.

It was another robust show, following Thursday's 99-82 win over the Knicks at Staples. Among the topics of conversation:

  • A very strong defensive performance from the Lakers, holding the Knicks to 31.3 percent shooting.

  • Kobe Bryant's health, and his strong game Thursday.

  • Bench depth.

  • Andrew Bynum's return, just in time for a stiff portion of the Lakers schedule.
