Pau Gasol's Triple-Double Leads Lakers Over Blazers

Well, the Los Angeles Lakers  took care for their first major test of the season.

The Lakers beat the Portland Traiblazers 121-96, with Pau Gasol netting a triple-double: 20 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists. The game was pretty much decided by halftime, with the Lakers leading by 22 points, event with Kobe Bryant not playing his "A" game.

Lamar Odom again had a solid outing with 21 points and 12 rebounds. This is also one of the rare games where Odom leads the team in scoring and field-goal attempts. If you ask me, I like Odom's play this start of the season: double-doubles and all-around play.

The Lakers are now 7-0 and they are leading the league in the winning column. But I see another Western Conference Player of the Week recognition for Pau Gasol.
