The Los Angeles Lakers are looking like their back to their old selves and Andrew Bynum isn't even back yet. After losing four games last week they've now won two this one. The Lakers topped the Wizards 115-108 at home. The Wizards three trick point guard pony of John Wall, Gilbert Arenas and Nick Young was not enough for the Lakers horsepower. John Wall was twice nice with 22 points and 14 assists but still that wasn't enough for the great play of Kobe Bryant and Lamar Odom for the Lakers. As it was the Lake Show who also doubled up for a blowout lead spurred on by the combined 35 points from Kobe who had 18 and Odom who had 17. Bryant finished off the Wiz with 32 points while Lamar added a 24 point insult to Washington's injury. It felt like 2006 again with this Jordan, Pippen like combo complimenting each other. The D.C team still had a chance cutting a deficit of 19 to 3 in the third behind the excellent play of their two rookie points but then the young guys hit the wall. The experienced, champion Lakers just had too much in the way. Now who's got next? TIM DAVID HARVEY
