Training camp invite Xavier Henry leads the show by putting up 29 points and 7 rebounds while shooting an efficient 60 percent from the field in 26 minutes of action. The former Kansas Jayhawk is certainly making his case to make the regular season roster.
Nick Young also pours in 17 points in only 19 minutes. Veteran big man Chris Kaman adds a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Jordan Farmar returns to L.A. while scoring 12 points and dishing out a team high 7 assists.
The Lakers were without their three best players and Future Hall of Famers in Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Steve Nash. Still, the team managed to win with their role players giving it their all on the court.
Interestingly enough, last year when the Lakers were suppose to be the powerhouse of the NBA they went 0-8 in the preseason. However, the franchise is hoping to do better this year, and they did a nice job of showing their team identity tonight.
The Lakers return to action tomorrow night at Staples Center facing the Denver Nuggets at 6:30pm PSD.
