The Credits: "Bandits"

New, comments

Going into last night's game, the Lakers were a mighty 1-7 away from the cozy confines of Staples Center. The LakeShow somehow managed to give up 24 (24!!!!) ORebs which led to 32 (32!!!!) 2nd-chance points for the Timberwolves. How the Lakers managed to leave the Target Center with a 106-101 victory and secure their 2nd road win of the season, is a mystery. In a game that feels very much like a loss, the Lakers somehow managed to pull through, and snatched the Win right out of the Wolves' paws.

Ron Arte- err, Metta World Peace was given the starting nod and thanked Mike Brown by contributing nothing except a couple of assists and rebounds. Asked about this thoughts regarding the starting posish, MWP said:

"I really don't have a real comment on it but, I mean, it's kind of normal, it's not really... the main thing is that we won it. I think that was the main thing, just that consistency, whatever it's going to be. Just consistent so we can move forward and we can start winning games."

Kobe continued his throwback season with a line of 35pts and 14rebs, including 5-9 from long-range. Asked about the importance of the road win, he replied:

"I have no idea, I would assume so. We needed to get a win on the road."

A win is a win, and at this point in the Lakers' season, I think we'll all take it. No matter how ugly it may be.
