Lakers rally against their immortal foes in Charlotte - Final Score, 100-93
The Los Angeles Lakers lost Pau Gasol for at least 6-8 weeks, but were able to bring Dwight Howard back into the starting lineup. Unfortunately it mattered little as the Boston Celtics had their way with an exasperated squad.
In their first-ever visit to the Barclays Center, a short-handed Lakers squad defy the odds--both good and bad--in a costly victory against the Nets.
Despite being shorthanded the Los Angeles Lakers held on in Brooklyn and defeated the Nets without Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace. A big win for the purple and gold, who are now 3-1 on their 7 game road trip.
The Lakers managed to do just enough to hang onto a mighty 29 point lead that was turned into a 4 point game. Their first road win of 2013 is now in the bag. Oh, it's February.
The Lakers are who they are; a team that delivers disappointment in four games or less. Each glimmer of hope turns to a crushing of soul. Such is life for Los Angeles this season.
The Lakers survived a late 4th quarter scare in Staples and were able to hang onto the lead as they won their third straight game. A long road trip awaits.
The Lakers needed a statement victory after looking lost since their Christmas victory over the Knicks. With the Thunder visiting Staples they were able to catch a deadly predator with a little help from the Pass Mamba.
