LA Lakers defeat Detroit Pistons 108-83. If one hasn't watched the Lakers in the past couple of weeks, nothing would seem amiss after watching the Lakers beat down the Pistons. The fourth quarter resembled a mausoleum at STAPLES Center as even the tacos were all but guaranteed midway through the fourth quarter. The bench kept hitting their shots. The stars did what they do. Perhaps the only excitement in the game was Luke Walton getting a technical foul late in the quarter.

Kobe Bryant had 17 points as he became entered the tenth all-time leading scorer in NBA history. Pau Gasol led the Lakers scoring with 21 points while Lamar Odom led the bench with 16 points.

As for the Pistons, well both Tracy McGrady and Greg Monroe led them with 14 points. So what are the Lions up to? Oh... Yeah.
