The Lakers pulled out a win in a roller coaster of game Tuesday night against the Charlotte Bobcats at Staples Center. The Lakers fell behind quickly to the Bobcats but were able recover and lead by 2 at the end of the 1st quarter. The Lakers extended their lead to as much as 10 in the 2nd quarter but it started to go down hill from there. The Bobcats took a 5 point lead into half time.
The Knicks spoiled Mike D’Antoni’s return to MadisonSquareGarden for the first time as an opposing coach of his former team by dominating the Lakers on their way to a 116-07 win.
Carmelo was on his game early by scoring 22 points in the 1st quarter which helped build the Knicks lead to 14 after the 1st quarter. Carmelo’s hot shooting was put on ice after injuring his ankle in the 3rd quarter and leaving the game for good. His absense didnt slow down the Knicks.
The Knicks lead grew to as large as 26 at one point and the Lakers were never able to seriously put a scare into the Knicks all game long.

The Lakers made a push in the 2nd half by closing the lead to 6 by the end of the 3rd quarter but they couldn’t get any closer than 3 points in the 4th.
