Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol returned to the lineup for the Lakers last night. Gasol was rusty making just 2 of 10 shots. Then the Lakers lost Antawn Jamison to a sprained right wrist. If that wasn’t bad enough, the Lakers blew an 18-point lead. To the Washington Wizards. In Los Angeles. *tugs collar*
John Wall did what John Wall should do to 39-year old Steve Nash. Wall made Nash fall down while trying to guard him in the Wizards’ 103-100 win. Wall had 24 points, 6 rebounds, 3 steals, a career-high 16 assists and just one turnover. Wall has been sublime in March, averaging 20.3 points, 8.4 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 2.1 steals. He’s even shooting .517 from the field and 50% from behind the arc. I think we should hit the Dougie to celebrate.
