Lakers Nation Week In Review: Jan. 12 – Jan. 19

lakersThe Los Angeles Lakers had a solid week as they went 2-1 in the past three games. Los Angeles is beginning to figure things out and the team finally got its first win in 2013 Sunday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Lakers did show signs of improvement and hopefully they will be able to string together consecutive wins on a regular basis going forward. Even though the week ended on a disappointing note after the Thursday night loss to the Heat, the Lakers are slowly improving.

It was another busy seven days for the Lakers and here is a week in review.

Lakers Nation Game Recaps:

The Lakers got their first win of the new year when they beat the Cavaliers in Staples Center on Sunday. Kobe Bryant played a huge role in the victory as he played punishing defense on Kyrie Irving. The Lakers as a team played very well on both ends of the court and came away with a 113-93 win.

Los Angeles had a repeat performance Tuesday night when they blew out the Milwaukee Bucks. The Lakers once again played well on the defensive end and that allowed them to get easy points on the other side of the court. Bryant guarded the Bucks’ explosive scorers and he limited them to a pretty mediocre game.

 The Miami Heat made its lone visit to Staples Center to play the Lakers on Thursday for a national television showcase. Los Angeles played a very sloppy game, but the team remained in striking distance nearly the entire time. The Lakers had a chance to win the game in the fourth quarter, but they could not execute down the stretch to steal the victory.
