Mike D’Antoni hasn’t officially taken over as head coach for the Lakers yet but there are still games to be played. In case you missed it, the Lakers faced off against the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night. This nail bitting game went right down to the wire and ended with Danny Green hitting a game winning three over Kobe Bryant with less than 5 seconds left in the 4th quater.
The Lakers tried to answer with their own three pointer, not from any of the shooting guards on the team but from center…Pau Gasol! Most would’ve expected Kobe to take that last shot, as usual but Bryant was unable to shake free from the Spurs defense. Bryant had a great game, individually. He had 28 points on 12-for-19 shooting, eight assists and four rebounds.
All in all its still very early in the season and given the unstable coaching staff at the moment this team needs to step it up even more.
