Throughout the hype surrounding Phil Jackson's potential return to the Los Angeles Lakers—which ended with the Lakers actually going with Mike D'Antoni—it appears as if we've missed out on one important fact. Interim coach Bernie Bickerstaff presently has a 1.000 win percentage.
For the second time in as many games, the Lake Show have emerged victorious. After starting 1-4, the Lakers bounced back by defeating the Golden State Warriors 101-77.
Tonight, they followed said performance up with a 103-90 victory over the Sacramento Kings.
The Lakers were led by Dwight Howard, who posted 23 points, 18 rebounds, three blocks and two steals. Kobe Bryant chipped in an additional 20 points, six rebounds and six assists, while Metta World Peace and Pau Gasol each scored 18.
But beyond the numbers, how did they fare?
