The Lakers after defeating the Toronto Raptors tonight become 14-1 and own the best record in the NBA still. Kobe Bryant came in 38 points shy of reaching 22,000 points faster then any player in NBA history. He is now 15 points shy, after dropping 23 points and dishing out 7 assists. Pau Gasol had 24 points and brought down 9 rebounds as he was doing it all, hook shots, jump shots and catching passes in motion to dunk the ball home. Andrew Bynum looked healthy after suffering a minor injury on the previous game, but it didn't even show, as he was catching alley oops galore.
The Raptors struggled late against the Laker defense, early on in the game they were keeping it close, but they just couldn't hang on. Chris Bosh had a tough time with the Lakers front court as he only had 12 points and 6 boards. Anthony Parker led the way with 19 points while Andrea Bargnani added 14 points and grabbed 11 boards. The Lakers 112-99 victory over the Raptors gives them their 7th straight home win and overall gives them only 1 loss in the season. They now shift their attention to the East Coast where they face the Pacers and the Wizards in the upcoming days. Lets Go Lakers!!!
