The Los Angeles Lakers finally snapped their longest home losing streak in franchise history with a win over the Boston Celtics at Staples Center on Friday night. Going into the game, Friday night seemed more like any other game than a rivalry. But, when the Lakers started a 19-5 run late in the third quarter that bled into the fourth, that rivalry spirit was back in the air. In their first game as Lakers, Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks impressed head coach Mike D’Antoni and their new teammates with their energy and enthusiasm, and their 15 and 14 points, respectively.
During the game, the Lakers got word that Kobe Bryant is still experiencing pain and swelling in his knee and will be out at least another three weeks. Pau Gasol and Mike D’Antoni react to the news. Plus, Chris Kaman talks about finally having fun out on the court and his latest episode of joking around with Lakers fans on Twitter.
