Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
At long last, Mike D'Antoni made his sideline debut for the Lakers, hoping to put to rest any thoughts that he was the wrong choice for the Lakers. Undoubtedly Los Angeles has a lot of weapons for the offensive-minded coach to play with. And so far, since D'Antoni took over, offense has been the key word for the Lakers.
Los Angeles defeated Brooklyn last night 95-90. It was actually one of the Lakers' worst offensive performances since D'Antoni officially took over. The Lakers are averaging 109.3 points per game in the three games since D'Antoni took over. The Lakers' average offensive rating in that stretch is 113.3.
Small sample size, but the Lakers offense is clearly sizzling. Kobe Bryant scored 25 points and added five assists. Dwight Howard had 23 points and 15 rebounds. Pau Gasol scored 17 points and seven assists.
With a little more hel...
BEST OF MAXIM
LOS ANGELES -- He had major knee replacement surgery just three weeks ago. Now that he's finally on the bench with his team, Lakers' coach Mike D'Antoni was asked if he felt that his team was more secure with their leader on the sidelines with them.
"They haven't seen me coach. They should be scared -- they should be real scared," a smiling D'Antoni...
Kobe Bryant scored six of his 25 points in the final two minutes, and the Los Angeles Lakers hung on for a 95-90 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night in coach Mike D'Antoni's sideline debut.
Dwight Howard had 23 points and 15 rebounds despite a horrific 7-for-19 performance at the free-throw line for the Lakers, who have won five of six and moved above .500 since...
Had the Lakers lost during Mike D’Antoni’s debut as the team’s Commander-In-Chief there may have been some slow singing and flower bringing out in Los Angeles.
After the team passed on arguably the best suited coach for the job in Phil “The Zen Master” Jackson, the Lakers just had to win against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday.

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist Right after Kobe Bryant made every one of his first five shots, you knew the Lakers weren't going to let new coach Mike D'Antoni lose his debut.
As it turned out, just enough good things happened after that to produce Tuesday night's 95-90 win over the visiting Brooklyn Nets. The Lakers shot the ball well enough...
Reggie Evans has a reputation as a flopper and it shouldn’t come as a surprise he was one of the players used in a video sent to media and teams this season to demonstrate acts of flopping and acts that aren’t considered to be flops. Also, he was one of the first four players warned [...]The post Reggie Evans’ Flop Vs. Los Angeles Lakers (Video) appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
At least that is what I imagine this Lakers fan is saying as he celebrates some Showtime action at the Staples Center earlier this week.
Never been a Lakers fan. Never had a desire to see them play. That has all changed because I want my own yellow Dwight Howard shirt and a seat next to Mr. Celebration.
I wonder how this dude celebrates when Dwight Howard...
Boston Celtics Coach Doc Rivers gave his take on the Lakers' coaching change to Chris Russo (SirusXM's Mad Dog Radio) on Tuesday, criticizing the organization for their handling of Phil Jackson.
"I didn't like the way it was done," said Rivers. "I don't think you embarrass anybody."
After relieving Mike Brown of his coaching duties, the Lakers...
With the departure of the Lakers former head coach Mike Brown, the organization chose to pass on the Zen master, Phil Jackson. Since then accusations of betrayal by Jim Buss and company have got to cause a uneasy situation with the Thanksgiving holiday coming up this week.
Phil’s long time girlfriend is Lakers EVP Jeanie Buss, might have sensed some awkwardness around the turkey...
Coach Mike D'Antoni may be somewhat wobbly on his surgically replaced knee, but the Los Angeles Lakers seem to be finding their stride.
Another meeting with the Sacramento Kings may keep their run going.
Coming off D'Antoni's winning debut on the bench, the Lakers look to continue their surge Wednesday night when they try to send the Kings to a sixth consecutive defeat...
I cannot think of another player in the NBA that could have done what Metta World Peace did last night during the Los Angeles Lakers come-from-behind win over the Brooklyn Nets. Watch as the artist formerly known as Ron Artest hits a three-point bucket to cut the lead to two, and then casually rubs the [...]
