    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

    Good news out of this morning's shootaround: Both Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol are expected to play tonight against the Utah Jazz. That Bynum will suit up is no surprise. He basically delivered the news himself Monday afternoon at practice. Gasol, ...

    I picture Kobe Bryant, sitting alone at a table for two in an Orange County restaurant. Five minutes pass. Ten. Twenty. Forty-five. Periodically, a sympathetic waitress comes by, wondering if she should take away the empty place setting across from t...

  12. Lakers sweep Jazz: The reactions

    Brian Kamenetzky

    33 points on only 18 shots, 14 rebounds (including seven offensive), a pair each of assists and blocks, and a partridge in a pear tree. I added that last one. But needless to say, it was a complete night for Pau Gasol- as Andy pointed out, one going ...

    If it feels like every year features the K Bros talking Lakers-Jazz playoffs, that's only because we do. It's the NBA's version of "Groundhog Day," starring Phil Jackson as "Phil Connors" and Jerry Sloan as one seriously dour "Ned Ryerson." M...
