Starring: The Masked Mamba strikes again. The death glare. The lobs. The swagger. With a date with Miami looming, the Masked Mamba and crew are looking poised after a win over the Sacramento Kings. The ball movement and spacing are all there. The Lakers are playing for Tacos again:

In winning six of their past eight games, the Lakers have shown signs of coming together offensively.They rank 10th in the league in shooting with a 45 percent field goal average and have topped the 100-point mark three times in the past two weeks. In addition, the Lakers seemingly have settled on their bench rotation with Matt Barnes and Steve Blake anchoring the second unit.

The Masked Mamba is waiting in the shadows. Ready to strike at a moment's notice. A man of few words, he let his henchmen do the talking:

"We'll do what we need to do to get a win," Derek Fisher said after he had six points and a team-leading seven assists against the Kings. "That's always the sweetest revenge. ... For us, it's a big game because of where we are as a team right now.

Much more after the jump...
