After scoring 73 points Monday against Dallas, the Lakers managed to post 87 tonight... but needed a garbage time, 31-point fourth quarter to get there. L.A. had 39 points at the half, which ain't gonna cut it. Pau Gasol had a nice game, but everyone else struggled.
Things have slowed down over the last two games for Kobe Bryant. We talk about why.
The lack of bench production, or more specifically the lack of specific parts that might make the guys they have more effective. The whole Metta World Peace-as-sixth-man experiment appears to have stalled.
Friday vs. Orlando: We try to put all the Bynum-for-Howard talk in context.
All that, plus a jaunty tune to lighten the mood. Hope you enjoy it.
