All it took for the Los Angeles Lakers to finally get off their schnide was a visit from one of the worst teams in the NBA. Thanks to the Detroit Pistons, the Lake Show nabbed their first win of the season with a final score of 108-79.
While you can't say much about the team they beat, it was nice to see the Lakers finally put their offense together in a manner that was both entertaining and impressive.
Dwight Howard led the team in scoring with 28 points, but the team shared the wealth, with five different Lakers ending up with double-digit scoring.
It's going to be interesting to see whether or not this Lakers win was the result of the team actually clicking or just a terrible team coming into town and giving them the breathing room to run their offense efficiently.
Let's take a look at how the Lakers were able to win and what role each unit of this team played in their first victory of the season.
