The Lakers were able to put an end to their losing ways Friday night by rallying to a 101-92 win against the Boston Celtics. New Laker addition, MarShon Brooks, led the charge early in the fourth quarter by scoring the Lakers’ first three baskets. Kent Bazemore, who was also acquired in the Steve Blake trade, made his Laker debut and provided the Lakers with some much needed defensive intensity. Saturday’s practice aimed to further integrate the new Lakers into the system before Sunday’s matchup against the Brooklyn Nets.

There was also some good news on the injury front as Nick Young is expected to play in tomorrow’s game:

Xavier Henry practiced as well after being cleared to resume basketball activities. It appears Henry is getting closer to return and was seen dunking during the practice session:

Although he is practicing, Henry still has some work to do before making his return to the hardwood:

The addition of the healthy bodies coupled with acquisition of Brooks and Bazemore could serve as a spark to help the Lakers remain competitive in games during the second half of the season. The Lakers face a tough schedule for the rest of the season and there still remains some hope that the Lakers could develop some chemistry going into the offseason.

    Hello sudden logjam at SF/SG…it looks like Young, Henry, Johnson, Brooks & Bazemore are all going to be auditioning for maybe 2 or 3 spots at best on next season’s roster down the stretch in this one.

    Nick Young and Xavier Henry are just what the doctor ordered.I am concerned with the health of Kobe and i wonder what’s the earliest he will comeback to play.I am guessing by next season sometime he will attempt to play or will he just call it a career if he suffers another setback just not counting him out.I think he might return this season their is a decent chance of it happening.

    We got way too many wing players serious logjam with Kobe,Wesley,Young,Meeks,Xavier,MarShon.For now Young,Meeks shooting guards and Small Forwards Wesley,MarShon but once Kobe and Xavier comeback then it’s going to be limited PT for 2 wing players my best guess is MDA will use Wesley at Power Forward to open up room for Xavier.


    The Lakers ain’t shit without Kobe Bean Bryant all you haters sat their saying the Lakers would be better without Kobe and then the Lakers come up with a 19-37 record so far that’s a epic fail with your logic Kobe haters.Now you see Nick Young and Xavier Henry coming back and you say Kobe is a big waste of money that’s a messed up way of thinking.Lakers are irrelevant without Kobe.

    Kobe only missed the playoffs once in 18 years of playing this season doesn’t count against Kobe since he only played ion 6 games.This counts against the Lakers front office those inept POS scumbags were riding Kobe Bryant for 18 years and the one season he got injured they sank to the bottom of the western conference.Kobe has been consistent for 18 years,Lakers suck once he leaves.

    That’s proof it was all Kobe and the Lakers ain’t shit without Kobe.So the truth is the Lakers would be a consistent lottery team without Kobe and they are now a lottery team and a bottom feeder without Kobe.Lakers are 19-37 that’s a trashy record.The Lakers brass Mitch and Jim just have no idea how to build a team without Kobe so they paid him $48.5 million dollars for 2 years just to buy time in hopes he returns to save them from their incompetence.

    Mike D’Antoni is one of the worst coaches in the NBA and he just awful at everything he does but yet he doesn’t get fired well that is because Kobe idolized him as a kid in Italy and therefore the job of D’Antoni is secure since Kobe is in charge of the whole show since the Lakers are terrible and suck without him.

    Lakers are now happy they got 2 scrubs for Steve Blake that is a joke man.Steve Blake is much better than all those scrubs on the Lakers.

    Those 2 scrubs they freaking got from Golden State were just added in to make the trade work otherwise they will be gone very soon once the season ends.The 2 pathetic scrubs had splinters in their ass from sitting on the bench so much in Golden State.Yes they got splinters from sitting so long.Bad trade for LA.grade F


    So many haters with stupid comments about Kobe it’s disrespectful.Kobe is GOD.
