Without Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake or Jordan Farmar, the Lakers managed to bind together without a point guard and beat Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves, 104-91 Friday night. Nick Young scored in double figures (25) for his 12th consecutive game and the Lakers bench outscored the Minnesota reserves 35 to 19. Xavier Henry, who played the Lakers point guard for the majority of the game scored 21 points in his first career game as a point guard. Pau Gasol was just two assists shy of recording the eighth triple double of his career.
It was the Lakers 11th different starting lineup of the season, but everything worked out in the Lakers’ favor and Lakers fans rejoiced in their teams renewed energy. Check out our Lakers post-game videos below and don’t forget to subscribe to our Lakers Nation YouTube Channel!
