Block Party at Staples Center, Lakers Involved
If you are a Lakers fan, it was a night to remember. A night when the team threw a block party and YOU were invited!
L.A cruised to an easy Game 2 victory 111-103, behind a huge defensive output, as well as monster games from the team’s big 3: Bryant, Gasol and Bynum. The Lakers were able to effectively use their size to block 13 shots throughout the game.

Kobe had a “Magic” like game on the score sheets with 30 points with 8 assists, 5 boards and 3 blocks. His most important contribution came in the 3rd quarter when he dropped 13 on the Jazz when his teammates had trouble finding their shots.
Game 2 seemed like the first time the Lakers really clicked as a team in the 2010 Playoffs. The score made the game seem closer than it really was. Kobe and Co. turned the ball over 20 times, which led to 28 UTAH POINTS!
In the 2009 Playoffs when the Lakers and Jazz met, L.A. took the first two games at home before losing Game 3 in Utah. Let’s hope the past stays in the past and the Lakers cruise to a Game 3 victory.Check out the highlights from the game:
