The first official game of the Mike D'Antoni era resulted in a 95-90 victory for the Los Angeles Lakers over the Brooklyn Nets Tuesday evening at Staples Center.
With D'Antoni's system putting the onus on the starters, four of the Lakers' starting five scored in double figures, with Darrius Morris as the outlier.
The Nets' inside-outside duo of Brook Lopez and Deron Williams combined for 45 points, but as a team Brooklyn struggled and only shot 41.5 percent from the field.
Now having won three games in a row, it looks like the Lakers are starting to piece things together on both ends of the floor. While there may need to be a more comfortable balance between the starters and the bench, D'Antoni has things moving in a positive direction.
Here are postgame player grades and analysis from Tuesday night's contest.
