LA Lakers defeat New Orleans Hornets 100-87. Sometimes I really think the Lakers just want to fuck with us. They came out and played like the team we all thought they were. The Lakers held the Hornets to 42% shooting and Chris Paul to 17 points on 6-for-16 shooting and 10 assists. Offensively there really isn't anything to worry about with the Lakers aside from the occasional off-shooting night. Kobe and Pau got their points while Andrew Bynum stayed out of foul trouble. The last time the Lakers faced the Hornets they had a huge lead slip away to just three points at the end of the game. There was no such collapse this time around.

#10/#13 UCLA Bruins defeat Wyoming Cowboys 113-62. All that needs to be said about this game is that the 59 points the Bruins scored in the first half was the most points scored in a half by a Ben Howland coached Bruins team.
