    (With the Lakers-Heat Christmas Day showdown still several days away, below is an early peek at one of the big issues shaping Saturday's game.) Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Lamar Odom, Andrew Bynum, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade. When the Heat ...

  2. How the Lakers match up: Miami Heat

    Brian Kamenetzky

    In the wake of their team's roster overhaul, there are matchups around the association of great interest to Lakers fans. The precocious (and still improving) reigning Western Conference champion Oklahoma City Thunder, for one. San Antonio, which won ...

  4. Lakers 93, Miami 83: Postgame video

    Brian Kamenetzky

    (NOTE: Tonight's Lakers Late Night replay won't be available. Unfortunately, we ran into a technical glitch after the show, and the file was lost. Apologies.) The Lakers did yeoman's work defensively Sunday afternoon against the Heat, and came aw...

  5. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 93, Heat 83

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The Lakers have played well of late, winning seven-of-nine entering Sunday's game at Staples. Still, they lacked what might be considered a signature win. Fair to say they solved that problem, knocking off the Miami Heat by 10. Here are five ta...

  6. Andrew Bynum knows big brother is watching

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Earlier this week, Matt Barnes declared Metta World Peace the Lakers' enforcer, and himself the enforcer's sidekick. If that's the case, then Andrew Bynum is the guy who just got out on parole and has to stay out of trouble. I anticipate Sunday's ...

  7. Rapid Reaction: Miami 98, Lakers 87

    Brian Kamenetzky

    The Lakers dropped to 10-6 Thursday night, with an increasingly disturbing 1-5 record on the road tucked inside, as the Miami Heat dominated almost from the start. Little went right for the Lakers, save what was arguably Pau Gasol's best game of t...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    As a group, the Lakers have taken plenty of criticism following their rather unceremonious dumping from the 2011 NBA playoffs. Individually, no single player has absorbed more heat than Pau Gasol. While nobody, Pau included, would defend the quality ...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Because it's apparently never too early to consider a target for your hard earned gambling dollars, the fine folks at Bodog have issued their early odds for next season's NBA title. Here's how it breaks down: Miami- 5/2 Lakers- 11/2 Chicago- ...

  10. Kobe, shot selection, and L.A.'s late game O vs. Miami

    Brian Kamenetzky

    It's hard to call Thursday's loss a catastrophe, given that it ended an eight-game winning streak and came on the road to a high-level opponent. There were defensive failings down the stretch, illustrated in great detail by Sebastian Pruiti of NBA Pl...

  11. Miami 94, Lakers 88 -- At the buzzer

    Brian Kamenetzky

    In the first meeting between the Lakers and Heat, L.A. managed to spoil Christmas across the city with a horrendous effort at Staples Center. Thursday night in Miami, the Lakers played a much better game, but whatever holiday it happens to be tonight...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Jayne Kamin-Oncea/US Presswire Christmas Day went to LeBron James and the Heat, but since the All-Star break Kobe Bryant and the Lakers have caught fire while Miami enters Thursday's game with a five-game losing streak. The Lakers meet a suffering ...

  13. Celtics 109, Lakers 96 -- At the buzzer

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Against teams considered among the league's elite, the Lakers haven't fared well. A big loss to the Heat on Christmas, then a blowout at the hands of San Antonio. They lost to Dallas, and only a split against the Bulls gives the Lakers a win against ...

    Brian Kamenetzky

    You may recall earlier this season when, amidst the hype about the Lakers pushing for 72 wins (those were the days), Phil Jackson said emphatically his team wouldn't get there. But Miami could. Of course, when the Heat soon hit the skids, Jackson als...

  15. Heat 96, Lakers 80: At the buzzer

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Fans didn't exactly enjoy it the first time around, but for the Lakers it was the game so nice, they apparently decided to play it twice. Last Christmas, the Lakers walked into Staples Center for a holiday game against LeBron James and Co. (in thi...

  16. Fisher, Barnes, and Miller: Parallel universes and "What if's?"

    Brian Kamenetzky

    There's a parallel universe somewhere in which Saturday's game between the Lakers and Heat- still on Christmas Day because Phil Jackson isn't commissioner of the NBA there, either- takes place with the same players in the building, but not all in the...
