Apr. 18, 2010 - Los Angeles, United States - epa02123134 Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol (R) of Spain, looks back at teammate forward Lamar Odom (L) in first half action against the Oklahoma City Thunder of game one of the NBA Playoffs in Los Angeles, California, USA, 18 April 2010.

PAU! PAU! Gasol was perfect this weekend as the Lakers took apart the less powerful version of a very talented Golden State Warriors. Golden State didn't glitter last night as it was a Sunday night whitewash for the Lake Show. With a score of 117-89 the Lakers made it another Sunday blowout win at home after trouncing Portland a fortnight back (they did lose to Phoenix at home last week though). Pau Gasol hit all his shots to lead the team with a clean 28 for the score sheet. Thanks to Gasol the Lakers gassed up the Warriors for a 30 point lead in the first half. Although Golden State battled back. The Lakers had too much firepower and defence. Kobe added 20, while Lamar Odom made his a double with 15 points and 10 rebounds (get that All-Star ballot punched). Pau deservedly sat out the last quarter after going forth with a perfect record from the field and the stripe. He also notched 9 boards and 5 dimes before the fourth quarter. The Warriors still played hard, rising talent Dorell Wright (you should have played him earlier Miami) had 16 while Stephen Curry did travel to Staples this time bagging 13. Monta Ellis had 5 before being taken out the game after falling on his hip. The GSW's will hope Monta can return to the side soon. TIM DAVID HARVEY
