Pau Gasol Lifts Lakers Over Nets

Pau Gasol's 36 points, 11 rebounds, and 7 assists boosted the Los Angeles Lakers to a 103-95 road win over the New Jersey Nets.

I  think the Lakers would have lost the game if had Gasol not stepped up-- Kobe Bryant had an off-shooting night once again with a 26% shooting clip. Heck, Kobe was outscored by by Derek Fisher for the game.

The Lakers seem to be building a reputation for letting opponents close in on them after building a very big lead. The Lakers led by 22 at some point, then let the Nets catch up and trim the lead to two points in the second half.  But thanks to Gasol, the Lakers never gave up the lead.

On a side note, the Lakers are still trailing the Cleveland Cavaliers for the NBA's best record.
