The Los Angeles Lakers are not very good right now. They put that undisputable fact on full display last night when they got beat down, at home, by the usually terrible Orlando Magic.
Kobe Bryant led all scorers with 34 points on 12-of-27 shooting. (He also had seven rebounds and five assists.) Dwight Howard had 21 points and 15 rebounds, but he also missed 12 free throws. Pau Gasol had 11 points on four-of-11 shooting. All in all, five Lakers players finished in double figures.
Meanwhile, Aaron Afflalo led the way for Orlando with 30 points on 11-of-18 shooting. Big Baby and Jameer Nelson pitched in 23 points and 19 points, respectively.
