A Hard Day’s Night

Coby Karl worked like a dog last night. He played 37 minutes for the D-Fenders in their Developmental League game, notching 15 points, five rebounds, six assists and four turnovers in a 104-100 win over Tulsa. The game finished about 6 p.m., which was enough time for Karl to shower, put on his Lakers’ uniform, grab a quick bite to eat and head out to warm-up with the Lakers, who tipped off against Atlanta just after 7:30 p.m.
When the game turned into a blowout, Karl found himself playing the final 6:08 in which he scored five points, including a breakaway dunk.
Jordan Farmar turned the same trick last season, but he usually had a few hours between games. Karl said he was tired during warm ups, but woke up when the game began.[ep
“When we were younger, we’d play tripleheaders and doubleheaders in AAU ball all the time,” Karl said.
