Honestly I watch the Lakers every night to watch them lose. I get nothing but pleasure to watch them lose. I live in Laker country, and I have a friend who was actually cheering for the Celtics to beat the Clippers. First of all I would never cheer for the Lakers. Where it the hate. Anyway, the Lakers lost a close battle in LA to the 76ers. The Lakers drop to 15-16, and I love the company.
Jrue Holiday had 26 points and 10 assists, Evan Turner added 22 points and 13 rebounds, and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Los Angeles Lakers 103-99 on Tuesday night.
The Lakers (15-16) have matched their worst start after 31 games since the 2002-03 season, when they began defense of their third straight NBA title with a 12-19 record. The Lakers finished 50-32, and they lost in the second round to the eventual champs the Spurs. We can only hope the Celtics win 50 this season. Keep your fingers crossed Celtic fans.
Kobe Bryant, who shifted from shooting guard to small forward five games ago in coach Mike D'Antonio's redesigned rotation, led the Lakers with 36 points. Steve Nash added 12 points and 10 assists.
Down by nine with just less than three minutes to play, the Lakers closed to 99-97 on Bryant's 3-pointer with 1:28 left. But Spencer Hawes responded with a 21-footer 16 seconds later, and Holiday helped close it out on a driving dunk with 22.4 seconds on the clock.
