The Los Angeles Lakers escaped Detroit with a win. Earl Clark could have iced the game, but he missed two free throws. Steve Nash could have finished the Pistons off, but he also missed two free throws. But LA still managed to win.
Clark played well again, scoring 17 points (6-11 FG, 4-6 FT) with a three, 10 rebounds, an assist, two steals and two blocks. Two of those points came on a fantastic alley oop from Kobe Bryant.
Clark is owned in just 27 percent of Yahoo leagues. That number should be doubled.
Pau Gasol also double-double with 23 points and 10 rebounds. He chipped in three assists and two steals in 40 minutes. He'll flourish as a starter as long as Dwight Howard is out.
