Pau Gasol returned to the Lakers' starting lineup Sunday, and he looked good in the loss to the Toronto Raptors. Gasol scored 25 points (10-15 FG, 5-6 FT) to go with five rebounds, two assists and a block in 33 minutes.
Gasol was helped by Dwight Howard, who was thrown out of the game after drawing two technicals. D12 played just 17 minutes (5 points, two rebounds, an assist and a block).
Earl Clark was banished to the bench, but he still played 35 minutes and double-doubled (14 points and 14 rebounds with two assist, a steal and a block). It'll be interesting to see how much time he gets when Howard isn't going Incredible Hulk. The odd-man out may be Antawn Jamison, who scored five points and grabbed five rebounds in 30 minutes.
Hold onto Clark until further notice.
