There’s no holding back the Los Angeles Lakers, as they beat the Brooklyn Nets despite team complications. Dwight Howard is still out with a torn labrum in his right shoulder. His replacement, Pau Gasol was unable to finish the game, after a pain in his right foot, which was diagnosed as a strained plantar fascia. He will undergo an MRI exam today. Metta World Peace was also missing from the game, still suspended.
Kobe Bryant helped lead his team with 21 points and eight rebounds. The final score was 83 Nets, 92 Lakers.
