LA Lakers defeat Oklahoma City Thunder 105-98. The Lakers lax defense down the stretch almost cost the fans their tacos. The game really was never in doubt. But watching Russell Westbrook make his jumps was a reminder to all Bruin fans last year. Man is he good. But the Lakers make short work of the Thunder and get ready to play the Jazz in Utah later today.
LA Kings defeat NY Islanders 4-3 (SO). The Kings finished their Grammy Awards roadtrip going 4-1 and 6-1 in their last seven road games. Jack Johnson scored the only goal in the shootout handing the Islanders their third straight defeat by the hands of the Kings. The Kings are making a strong push for the playoffs.
- Miguel Tejada really does have a problem with this truth thing. The 32-year old (or is he 24? 49 anyone? I can't keep track) shortstop for the Houston Astros is accused of lying to Congress about knowledge of a teammate's use of steroids while with the Oakland A's. I really have no comment.
