"The Lakers just stunk. They trailed by as much as 24 points in the fourth quarter but managed to get within four points in the final seconds of the game," said LAist Sports Editor Jimmy Bramlett in LAst Night's Action.

However, "at least Lakers fans were able to deliver the beat down that there team couldn't," a post at FanIQ notes. "Some Celtics fan showed up at the Staples Center in a jersey and promptly got his butt kicked by a mass of Lakers hooligans backers."

"That's actually a substantial fight, one worthy of praise; had there been a game going on, they'd have broken it up so much sooner," wrote Will Leitch at Deadspin.
