The Milwaukee Bucks best player Brandon Jennings may have been out but they could afford to miss him in this one as they defeated the Lakers 89-79 at Staples. Without Jennings, little man Earl Boykins came up big with a season high 22 (including four dagger three pointers), while talented forward, John Salmons added 20 as the Bucks stopped the Lake Show. Still Kobe Bryant had 21 points before he was ejected for a second technical and Pau Gasol had 15 points and 11 rebounds yet again seeing double. The Lakers where scoreless for four minutes in the fourth as the Bucks galloped away on a 21-7 run which sealed the victory. Corey Maggette and Drew Gooden where also out for the Bucks but star Andrew Bogut made sure that was a no factor with 15 points. Right before Christmas Leonardo DiCaprio and Dr. Dre where on hand to watch their Los Angeles team fall. As the Hollywood brethren and the Lakers didn't get what they want Kobe left the court after being ejected, swearing and refusing to talk to reporters. Still Lamar Odom told us what we all knew, "We just didn't play well." TIM DAVID HARVEY.
