Lakers Win First Game!

After much heat regarding how bad the Lakers will be this season, the Los Angeles Lakers have finally mustered a win, a come-from-behind victory over Charlotte by the score of 107-92. 
Though trailing through the whole first half and much of the third quarter, the Lakers went on a scoring binge in the third.

Charlotte missed too many threes and free-throws, leading to the loss. The Lakers recorded 28 assists, nearly doubling the Bobcats' total of 15. 

Leading the charge for the Lakers was Jeremy Lin, with a team high plus-minus of +17. Lin was hot from the field, scoring 21 points with 8/12 shooting from the field (3 of 6 from downtown), while dishing 7 assists. Kobe matched Lin's scoring output, getting 6 rebounds and 4 assists himself. Ed Davis (5/5, 10 points), Carlos Boozer (7/11, 16 points), and Jordan Hill (6/12, 12 points) were instrumental in a strong big-man showing in tonight's game.

Even back-up PG Ronnie Price had a nice game, notching 8 assists while scoring 7 points, though he missed both 3-Pt attempts he took. Wayne Ellington also provided nine points in his floor time. 

This game might just be what the doctored ordered to turn around a struggling Lakers team. It certainly will boost confidence in Lin and his crew, with Kobe being the ever-steady veteran presence on a group of guys hungry for winning.

Speaking of hungry, guess Charles Barkeley can eat again now that the Lakers won, eh?
Don't worry, it's all a part of the franchise cycle, starring Kobe and Jeremy.
