LAst Night's Action: Lakers Did Work Against Knicks
LA Lakers defeat NY Knicks 100-90. The Knicks lead the Lakers 41-40 with a little more than three minutes left in the first half. The Lakers then realized they were bigger than the Knicks and went on to lead by as much as 24 points in the third quarter. Kobe Bryant scored a respectable 34 points in which considering 34 points respectable would usually be audacious. Pau Gasol added 11 points and 16 rebounds while Ron Artest scored 17. The bench came in for the fourth period also known as garbage time while the Knicks rallied to make the rout look innocuous in the box score. With Stevie Wonder, Spike Lee, George Lopez and Mrs. Lamar Odom to watch the destruction, the Lakers are now tied with the Phoenix Suns for best record in the West.
