The Los Angeles Lakers continued their winning streak with a 106-99 victory over the Sacramento Kings on last night. The game against the Kings was an entertaining one, not only was the crowd that came to support the Lakers a sizable one, but they were just as loud as the Kings fans.
“I almost thought we were playing in the Staples Center,” Landry said. “I’ve never seen anything like that before. To see that many Lakers fans out there was kind if disappointing, but at the same time it was motivation for us.”
Kobe Bryant scored 30 points, Pau Gasol added 28 points and 11 rebounds, and Andrew Bynum added 21 points and 12 rebounds. This victory for the Lakers have kept them four games ahead of Denver for the best record in the Western Conference.
“We’re playing with more of a sense of urgency,” Bryant said. “Guys understand that we can be beaten. Once you understand that, you understand that that day can come. Guys have to remained focused.”
An amazing piece of the show came from Artest, who played to the crowd in the arena he used to call home! After a basket in the third quarter, he flexed, kissed his biceps and then smiled at the crowd before heading back to the game.
We are so ready for playoff’s..
