The Lakers finished off a busy and entertaining week of basketball going 1-2 from Friday through Thursday in their three games this week. The Lakers started off the week with an impressive road victory over division rivals Sacramento. The team stormed by from a second half deficit to defeat the Kings 106-100. The Lakers would then play one of the more memorable games in recent years when they hosted the Toronto Raptors on Sunday. What made this game so intriguing was that it was Kobe Bryant’s season debut.
Bryant played his first game in nearly eight months after tearing his achilles tendon back in April. The Lakers would go on to drop their next two games to the Raptors and Suns, however Bryant’s return gives the team their leader back for the remaining 60 games of the season. The Lakers have a tough week ahead of them with a four-game road trip in five nights that began in Oklahoma City. However before that all begins, take a moment and review the week that was in this edition of Lakers Photo’s of the week.
