The Los Angeles Lakers beat the Golden State Warriors Friday night, 102-95, increasing their record to 6-7 through 13 games. Pau Gasol scored 24 points in the win and will be donating $24,000 for U.N.I.C.E.F. relief efforts in the devastating aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan. Gasol says he definitely had an extra motivation of scoring for the Philippines.

Nick Young had another successful night off the bench, scoring 21 points, averaging over 15 points per game through the past five games. In his reserve role, he’s averaging 17.1 points this season. Young was all smiles post-game and even talked about hearing singer Rihanna call out “Swaggy P!” Lakers head coach Mike D’Antoni discusses what it’s been like to coach Young. Jordan Hill looks to Sunday and says he’s still playing through a bone bruise. Check out our Lakers post-game videos below and don’t forget to subscribe to our Lakers Nation YouTube Channel!

    Rihanna should be invited to every game – I would nominate as Lakers official good luck charm.

    Good vids, agree and disagree with the coach’s comments regarding last year’s team having more talent than the current. Although, we lack some starters foremost this team is better overall than last year’s. Depth lacked last season as well as chemistry. Yes, the team did lose a good athletic defender but all around the team has managed to fill this position inside.

    If Young can improve on his defense while getting a better feel on offensive plays (shot selection aside of overall consistency) IMO he will make an immediate impact and solidify his role as a starter in his long term career. Good overall consistent game from Pau as his more peaceful demeanor speaks volumes though it may also relate to his donation to the Philippine relief effort..

      i feel he only said they were more talented because they had Dwight Coward, but we all know hes definitely wrong about all of that this year you can actually see them getting better (especially when Kobe gets back) other than last year when we saw that the year was going to be bad…. with the changing of coaches, the piling injuries, lack of defense, and a bench that couldn’t handle keeping up or being consistent. The point is this Lakers squad is much more talented than last year…

      Swaggy P (P stands for Penguin because Swaggy dances like a penguin when he makes a fancy play, little wings out to the side and the Penguin shuffle) !!!!! and the Penguin is the fancy dresser of the animal world.

    Lakers have the best bench in the NBA,the bench is The Wolf Pack it’s led by Nick Young he leads The Wolf Pack.Nick Young could be sixth man of the year if he keeps coming off the bench.Of course their is some big time competition for the Sixth Man Of The Year Award people like Jamal Crawford,Ryan Anderson,Jeremy Lin,Harrison Barnes are also coming off the bench for their respective teams so the competition is at a all time high for Sixth Man Award.Nick,Farmar,Shawne,Kaman,Xavier have all done a good job off the bench.

    Nick Young is has played great coming off the bench he is known for being a scorer in the NBA.Back in Washington days he was on the verge of being a breakout star climbing up to All Star but then he got traded to the Clippers and he did fine with them but it set him back from being a star.Also he year in Philly was just a waste of time from the looks of it.

    He really seems to be finding his stardom with the Lakers as a Sixth Man Of The Year Candidate.Nick Young is also dating a very popular famous female musician named Iggy Azalea.USC is proud and so is Iggy i am sure.Cool dude Lakers have the best bench in the NBA.Xavier Henry needs to start making shots or else he will be out of the rotation IMO.

      X-man is trying to hard, he has to concentrate on his mid-range game to open up his over all game. come on X-man take what the game gives you on the mid-range and quit trying to force going to the rack.

    Lakers next 4 games are all very winnable. It will be awesome if they could get to 10-7 on a 4 game wining streak. I also think if they keep playing well that will allow Kobe to play more of a facilitator role and save himself a bit more for the playoffs. I think they should try to deal Nash though. They should look into sending Nash to Timberwolves for JJ Barea. Nash could become the mentor Rubio needs to get to the next level and the Lakers get another guy tailor made for D’Antoni’s system. They def need another PG because having 2 is jut too dangerous and Nash well I just don’t think he is ever going to get completely healthy.
    Finally, if things keep getting better for the Lakers Mike D’Antoni should get a vote or 2 for Coach of the Year. I know people hate him because of last year, but with this roster he is def the right guy at the helm and is doing a great job so far. Criticize all you want but all the tinkering at the beginning has led to an improved starting 5 while maintaining the best bench in the NBA.
