Lakers Bounce Back Against Golden State

By Bryan Jeon

The Lakers blew a 9-point lead with 90 seconds left in regulation and had to come from behind in overtime to beat the Warriors Monday 123-119. Lamar Odom finished with 23 points and 21 rebounds, becoming the first Laker since Vlade Divac in 1995 to have back-to-back 20-rebound games.
The Lakers hold the second seed in the Western Conference behind the New Orleans Hornets, and I feel my job is done here. With Pau Gasol reportedly set to return as early as Wednesday against Charlotte, the Lakers are in pretty good shape with 11 games remaining in the regular season. Now how about them Mavs?

Results (with current conference rank in parenthesis):

3/11 Toronto (6) – W 117-108
3/14 @ New Orleans (1) – L 108-98
3/16 @ Houston (3) – L 104-92
3/18 @ Dallas (7) – W 102-100
3/20 @ Utah (4) – W 106-95
3/21 Seattle (15) – W 130-105
3/23 Golden State (8) – L 115-111
3/24 @ Golden State (8) – W 123-119 OT
