Bryant had another strong game with 34 points, making 12 of 14 free throws, as the Lakers fall. The Lakers are 4-7 in their last 11 games.
The Lakers never led in the second half while losing their second in a row. They trailed by three to start the fourth quarter only to get outscored 20-8 and to fall behind by 15.
The Lakers connected on 15 three's, and that was the only thing that really allowed them to stay in the game. The Lakers improve to 9-12 on the season. Howard only went to the line twice, hitting one freebie.
The Celtics have their own set of problems, but it seems like things could be much worse. The Lakers were projected to be number one in the West, or even number two. I think it will be tough for them to bounce back. If the playoffs started today the Lakers would miss. I really don't know what to think of the Lakers. They gave up 117 points, and defense is an after thought. I didn't buy into the Lakers, but I also thought they would be one of the top teams in the West, and so far it's not the case.
