With Pau Gasol back in the lineup, the Lakers are taller, slower and more vulnerable. Gasol, who was out for over six weeks with a foot injury, is still working his way back into shape, but some of the initial problems that plagued the Lakers persist. Coach Mike D'Antoni benched Gasol for Earl Clark to give the Lakers a more athletic starting lineup. The change in continuity has contributed to a three-game losing streak.
