The Los Angeles Lakers hosted the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night with each team seeking its second win. The Lake Show reeled off a fine first half and jumped out to a 62-49 advantage at the break, but the Hawks mounted a furious comeback and tied the game in the final minute. A crucial blocking call with six seconds remaining was followed by a pair of free throws and then a blocked shot from Pau Gasol, who ensured a 105-103 victory.
Gasol finished with 16 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Lake Show. Kyle Korver dropped 22, going 6-of-6 from downtown, and Al Horford tallied 12 and 16 for Atlanta.
