Milwaukee Bucks vs. L.A. Lakers: Postgame Grades and Analysis for L.A.
USA TODAY Sports

Mike D'Antoni said the season began on January 13 (via ESPN Los Angeles). In that case, the Los Angeles Lakers are now 2-0.

Behind a powerful performance by their stars, the Lakers convincingly defeated the Milwaukee Bucks by a score of 104-88.

Dwight Howard led the way with 31 points, 16 rebounds and four blocks. Kobe Bryant provided 31 points of his own, while Steve Nash added 11 assists.

Most important of all, this was the first time the Lakers held an opponent under 90 points since December 28, 2012.

With Pau Gasol sidelined, the Lakers appeared to be an actual team for the first time all season. It may be an overreaction, but this is the type of win that turns around a disappointing season.
