In his third game back, and playing just his eighth and ninth minutes of NBA action, Ronny Turiaf gets tossed around a bit by Zaza Pachulia, and gets to bask in the adoration of a crowd that loves a guy who's only a few months removed from major heart surgery. Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times reports:
...for once, the crowd chanted a name other than Bryant's, rookie Ronny Turiaf receiving short-lived recognition after getting hauled down under the basket by Zaza Pachulia with 1.4 seconds left in the third quarter. Pachulia was called for a flagrant foul and Turiaf made both free throws, his first points as a Laker providing an 84-83 Laker lead.
