Once again, the Lakers and Clippers put on a show, and for the second time in three tries the Lakers came out on top, winning 113-108 Wednesday night at Staples Center. With the victory, the Lakers take the season series, and put themselves in very strong position to take the Pacific Division and the third seed in the Western Conference.
A pair of Blake Griffin dunks will dominate the highlights, but there was a lot more to cover, starting with a huge night from Andrew Bynum. 36 points, most of them coming at the expense of DeAndre Jordan, and 31 from that Kobe guy. We hit on all that, and insert a little vintage Bill Bixby for good measure on Wednesday's edition (Thursday morning, technically) of Lakers Late Night.
