  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 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...

  3. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 95, Nets 90

    Brian Kamenetzky

  4. 5 questions facing the Lakers under Mike D'Antoni

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Nobody in the stands at Staples Center this weekend was chanting "We want Mike" -- and not just because doing so would potentially have sent mixed messages to management. No, the locals wanted Phil Jackson, and thought they were getting him. (In f...

  5. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 103, Kings 90

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Reviewing Sunday's 13-point win over Sacramento at Staples Center is tough on a couple of levels: 1. The Kings, particularly when short a suspended DeMarcus Cousins, aren't very good (preseason victories over the Lakers notwithstanding). The Laker...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Lakers Predictions for 2012-13

    Brian Kamenetzky

    One major component of the sports media business is making predictions. To call it more an art than science is a major disservice to art. It's more about making the best possible educated guess before hoping enough time passes that nobody remembers w...

  8. From the Department of Silver Linings: A run at history?

    Brian Kamenetzky

    Following last night's loss to Sacramento in San Diego, capping an unblemished preseason run of eight losses in eight games, I noted that while there is much work to do and for a variety of reasons the Lakers didn't get as much out of the exhibition ...

    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

    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...

  12. Rapid Reaction: Jazz 99, Lakers 86

    Brian Kamenetzky

    LOS ANGELES -- For those concerned about such things, the Los Angeles Lakers remain winless in the preseason, as the Utah Jazz outscored them by 24 points in the second half Saturday at Staples and won going away, 99-86. So there are kinks to work ou...

    Brian Kamenetzky
