In the final minutes of last night’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans, the Lakers were attempting to tie the game late in the fourth quarter. The team fed off Pau Gasol who turned in a commanding performance in trying to get the Lakers a big victory.
Jordan Farmar also gave the team a spark off the bench, prompting a certain teammate to get a little crazy with his celebration in this Vine provided from the Lakers Official Twitter page:

The best part of this video, undoubtedly, is the shock and fear on Chris Kaman’s face when Sacre hits him. That moment is priceless.
Though the fans would rally behind the Lakers as they attempted to complete the comeback, they would ultimately come up short, falling 132-125.
The chemistry and camaraderie on this team is one of their biggest strengths. The team is still struggling with injuries, and piling up losses in the meantime. It is this positivity that will keep the team fighting through the rest of the season.
The Lakers have to find a way to maintain their spirit and energy in these tough times. Though it may not seem like a big deal, things like this keep everyone in a good mood, which is key for this team.
