  1. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 101, Bobcats 100

    Brian Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- Mike D'Antoni alluded to it before the road trip, after the Lakers lost to Utah. At some point, the Los Angeles Lakers had to draw a line and take a stand. Clearly it didn't happen in Cleveland or New York. It may have,...

  2. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 103, Hornets 87

    Brian Kamenetzky

    First things first: Here's the big historical takeaway from Wednesday's badly needed 103-87 win for the Los Angeles Lakers over the Pelicans (sorry, not yet) Hornets in New Orleans ... Kobe Bryant reached 30,000 points for his career. ...

  3. The Lakers bench shows signs of life

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Last week's road trip wasn't exactly a rousing success (a horrendous effort in Sacramento followed by a frustrating one in Memphis before Saturday's thumping of Dallas), but it provided the first glimpses of real hope for this season's bench crew. ...

  4. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 115, Dallas 89

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Referring to the 14th game of the season as a "must-win," even for a 6-7 team falling well short of massive expectations, is hyperbolic even by sports media standards. Still, after dropping the first two games of their three-game road set, the Lakers...

  5. Rapid Reaction: Grizzlies 106, Lakers 98

    Brian Kamenetzky

    There is much work to be done. That much is evident after the Los Angeles Lakers fell behind early Friday night in Memphis and couldn't climb out of the hole. As it was Wednesday in Sacramento, the defense was too porous, the mistakes too plentiful. ...

  6. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 114, Suns 102

    Brian Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Lakers won Friday night at Staples Center easily enough that garbage-time minutes -- or at least a garbage-time minute -- were afforded to the likes of Earl Clark, Robert Sacre and Darius Johnson-Odom. Still, I suspect ...

  7. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 101, Warriors 77

    Brian Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- Nothing about the rest of the day was normal or expected -- not unless you think firing the head coach ahead of the season's sixth game qualifies -- but Friday night the Los Angeles Lakers did something that had been very rare in this ...

  8. Rapid Reaction: Jazz 96, Lakers 85

    Brian Kamenetzky

    A week or so ago I was asked on the radio to forecast the Lakers' first five games. I called two Lakers losses, and Wednesday's game at Utah was one. Salt Lake City is always a tough place to play, particularly when the Jazz have some talent, as they...

  9. Rock the Vote: Lakers - Clippers poll data

    Brian Kamenetzky

    'Tis the season to get all votey, celebrating the democratic process in all its forms. Tonight's matchup between the Clippers and Lakers, about as highly anticipated as a first-week regular-season game can be, is no exception. All week long, ESPN Los...

  10. Rapid Reaction: Mavericks 99, Lakers 91

    Brian Kamenetzky

    In these lean economic times, anyone looking to earn a little extra pocket money might consider the selling of torches and pitchforks to Los Angeles Lakers fans. Following Tuesday's 99-91 loss at Staples Center to the Dallas Mavericks in th...

  11. Rapid Reaction: Preseason comes to close

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Technically speaking, training camp didn't end with Thursday's 94-82 loss to Sacramento -- the cherry on an 0-8 preseason run -- in San Diego. The Lakers still have a few days of (much-needed) practice ahead of them before kicking off the 2...

  12. Rapid Reaction: Clippers 97, Lakers 91

    Brian Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- No Kobe Bryant, no Dwight Howard, no Chris Paul, Grant Hill, Lamar Odom, or Jamal Crawford. Fair to say much of the starch in Wednesday's preseason battle between the Clippers and Lakers was removed long before the tip. Still, as yo...

  13. Kobe Bryant unlikely to play Wednesday, Howard questionable

    Brian Kamenetzky

    EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Aside from learning what Pau Gasol is currently reading (The Tao of Pooh), Tuesday was all about injuries for the Lakers. The news ran the gamut from excellent to worrisome. Unfortunately, the worrisome part happens to be abo...

    Brian Kamenetzky

  15. Rapid Reaction: Kings 103, Lakers 98

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Five times the Los Angeles Lakers have suited up for a preseason game this year, and after Friday's 103-98 loss to the Sacramento Kings in Las Vegas, five times they have lost. Still, tonight's was a much better effort. The offense (see below) had...

  16. Rapid Reaction: Jazz 114, Lakers 80

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Preseason games are rarely enticing, but they don't necessarily have to be this ugly. Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers, light on stars, were again waxed by the Utah Jazz, 114-80. Their preseason record stands now at 0-4 heading into Friday's gam...
