The Credits: "Carnage"

Starring: The Lakers winning ugly. Very ugly. However, the important thing is the Lakers beat the Celtics in overtime. This was another trademark Lakers game with a slow pace and minimal contributions from the bench. The Lakers' uninspired play outside of the big three continued:

World Peace compensated by doing some very good work on Paul Pierce, but on the other end the Lakers spend a lot of time playing three-on-five. It's a lot to overcome. So unproductive was Fisher, who missed all seven of his shots and matched his assist and turnover totals with two, Mike Brown went with the Tin Man rusty Blake down the stretch and into overtime.

However, we'll take any win at this point in the season, especially against a surging Celtics team while on the road. The team still has a ways to go, and Kobe is confident a move will be made in the near future. Pau Gasol was left off the All Star team, and get ready for Lin-Sanity tomorrow night!

Much more after the jump...
