FIRST QUARTER Tonight's starters: Nash, Young, Johnson, Williams and Gasol. #letsgolakers— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Williams showing his defensive ability early with a strip and steal. Nick Young follows it with an and-one.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Pau finds Johnson on a nice cut, who is then fouled under the basket and heads to the line.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Nick Young missed a jumper after getting his defender in the air, but he followed it up with a slam in transition.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Then Shawne Williams drilled his first three of the game.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Young with a steal off the lazy Nuggets pass, then drilled the mid-range. #swaggyp— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Pau's first points of the night come on a pull-up jumper.

He mentioned this as a strong point of his game after he signed with the team.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Look like Johnson's headed back to the locker room. Hill just threw down a nice dunk off Blake's feed.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Lakers down 27-25 after one. Pau has 6 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists. 7 points and a steal for Young.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 SECOND QUARTER Meeks has hit a couple of shots tonight, but just missed the easiest look he'll get in a while: wasn't a defender within 10 feet of him.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Nash comes back into the game; he had a nice fake, then missed the pull-up but Sacre grabbed the board and was fouled.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Sacre just drew another charge - he drew one last night too. Then Williams hit another three.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Johnson has a sprained left foot, per Trudell.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Two straight air balls for Landry. Welp.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Pau with the block! Lakers lead 34-32 with 5:06 left in the first half.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Pau definitely appears to have a little more of a pep in his step.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Nash with a left-handed behind-the-back pass to Blake on the baseline who drills the three. Wow.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Lakers lead 38-37 with just over 2 minutes left in the half. Pau has 7 points, 3 rebounds. Nash with 3 assists.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Pau with the running hook in the lane. Gasol has 13 points now. Young has 7. Williams with 6 and 2 steals.

Meeks hits his first shot of the half - a look from three.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Young running again; Nash finds him and Young finishes the lay-up in transition.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Young just missed a dunk - his friend JaVale McGee was lurking and put him off - then Lakers called for 24 second violation.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Young with another steal. Then gets called for a technical as he lightly kicks the ball after not getting a call.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Williams got back on defense and knocked away Lawson's lay-up attempt. Nice hustle.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Young keeps attacking but isn't getting the call. Lakers down 10 at the timeout. Nash now has 6 assists.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Henry back into the game and just attacked a group of Nuggets; he draws another foul and will be at the line after the timeout.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Lakers down 61-51. They've scored just 26 points since the first quarter.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Hill drills a mid-range shot - good sign.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Well, Blake just fouled Robinson while he was shooting a three. Three shots for Nate with 0.5 left in the third.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Lakers down 72-58 after three quarters. The team's last basket came from a nice lay-in from Xavier Henry.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 FOURTH QUARTER Darius Johnson-Odom makes his first appearance, as does Eric Boateng.

Nuggets call timeout. Lakers down 82-72 with 5:56 to go.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Landry finally drills a three!— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Henry again shows that knack to get to the hoop; takes the contact and scores.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Henry AGAIN draws a foul inside and finishes on this one. He'll be at the line after the timeout.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Johnson-Odom GOT UP and slammed one home. Even got a "noooice" out of Stu.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Landry again for three. That's three straight after a bunch of air balls.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Lakers lose 97-88. Next game on Tuesday against these very Nuggets.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 STATS: Gasol put up 13 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 23 mins. 6 assists for Nash in 22 mins. Williams had 6 points, 5 rebounds, 2 steals.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 Still finished with 15 points on 7 shots. RT @KevinDing: Henry has a moderate strain of his right wrist. Played through discomfort tonight.— Lakerholicz.com (@Lakerholicz) October 7, 2013 .bottom-of-post-responsive { width: 300px; height: 250px; } @media(min-width: 500px) { .bottom-of-post-responsive { width: 300px; height: 250px; } } @media(min-width: 800px) { .bottom-of-post-responsive { width: 336px; height: 280px; } }
