Huge win down in Sacramento! We have a great group of guys with big hearts. I'm proud to be a part of this team. #GoLakers
Mike D'Antoni said he's been weighing whether to start Johnson or Meeks next to Bryant. Each has (different) skills that complement Bryant.
Yup. NBATV has you covered if you’re outside SoCal. RT @LPetro03

Whoever is going to the @Lakers

An offensive rebound for the Lakers leads to Meeks' third 3-pointer. He is tied for a team-high 13 points & the deficit is cut to 74-67.
Gasol starts the scoring in the 2nd half for the Lakers with the old fashioned 3-point play. Deficit is 59-55 early in the 3rd.
The Lakers shoot 51% from the floor in the 1st half, but trail 55-52. Meeks has 10p, Gasol has 10p, 5r & 3a.
