Reserve swingman, Devin Ebanks tweeted about how it was time for the Lakers to get revenge at the Consiceo Fieldhouse after the Pacers celebrated a win at Staples last week. The Lake Show showed a lot of character as well winning, 109-94. Kobe played the biggest part in this win with a Reggie Miller jersey number in points in front of the Indy faithful. 25 of these 31 came in the second half but it was in the first 24 that the Lakers built a lead that they would never relinquish. Pacers fans even chanted "KOBE, KOBE" and stayed to the end. Even though it was a blowout Pacer fans were willing to endure the traffic to witness a legend in rush hour. It wasn't just Kobe who maintained his top form. The relentless Pau Gasol had 28 while Lamar Odom ordered yet another double with 13 points and an incredible 17 rebounds. it's been a long time since these two where labelled soft. Will critics finally admit that the Lakers have a big three as well? This was the Lakers six win in seven games and now the team look less like the out of favour outfit they did the last time they met Indiana and more like the champions their supposed to be.
