Sean Hojnacki@@TheRealHojnackiFeatured ColumnistJanuary 4, 2013

The Los Angeles Clippers took down the Lakers in a thriller, 107-102. The Clippers led for virtually the entire game, but the Lakers got within two points with fewer than 90 seconds left.

Pau Gasol was a ghost, and Metta World Peace didn't do much aside from foul out. Dwight Howard posted some nice numbers, but he also committed a costly offensive foul late in the fourth quarter and later fouled out.

The story of the game was the battle of MVP candidates. Kobe Bryant carried the Lakers and had 38 points, but Chris Paul dropped 30 along with 13 assists, including scoring the final eight points for the Clippers. It was a fun slug-fest and the Clippers managed to hang on in the end.
