NBA – Battle of LA

In last night’s “battle of LA” the Clippers survived a 4th period comeback led by Kobe Bryant to defeat the Lakers, 107 – 102.  Kobe finished with 38 points, Dwight Howard had 21 points and 15 rebounds but it was not enough.  Chris Paul led the Clippers with 30 points and Blake Griffin added 24.

For the fourth time this season, Pau Gasol was benched for the 4th period.  He is clearly struggling to find his role on the D’Antoni coached Lakers.  It is really such a shame as Pau is one of the most talented big men in the game as well as one of the more intelligent basketball minds in the game.

Lakers have now dropped three of their last four and trail the Clippers by ten games.  Not good…
