The Lakers met their former Showtime favourite, Kurt Rambis and his Minnesota Timberwolves again last night and just like Rambis' play in the 80's things got a little tough. A sprained ankle couldn't stop Kobe from playing (and he'll play in Portland too) and nothing except an ejection could stop Bynum from muscling his way through the game. Bynum was thrown out the game after hitting 'Wolve Michael Beasley hard. Beasley also heard it from Ron Artest who was talking some Gary Payton and the whole Minny team heard it from the great number of Laker fans in STAPLES. The Lakers are now second in the West with a 49-20 record. Bynum shoved Michael and the NBA will look in to whether a suspension should be deemed. "Andrew's looked bad and the kid fell hard," Phil Jackson told press postgame with his take on the situation. Bynum had 10 points and 14 rebounds before his tossing, while Gasol had 25 and Shannon Brown 14 off the bench. The Lakers balanced attack fortunately outweighed their unbalanced moods, red was the color for the purple last night, but thankfully the yellow mellowed out in the end. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
