LOS ANGELES -- So Pau Gasol came back Tuesday night.
And ... not much looked all that different for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Sure, they won, beating the lowly Charlotte Bobcats 101-100. It was their third victory in a row, even. But if anyone thought the eight-game break Gasol took to rest his sore knees would give the Lakers and new coach Mike D'Antoni time to iron out and define Gasol's role in this uptempo offense, there wasn't much in the way of clarity coming out of Tuesday's game.
