It got close there for a minute, as the Clippers cut the Lakers lead to 76-75 at the end of the third quarter, but this one ended up being a rather easy win as the Lakers surged in the fourth quarter.
Andrew Bynum had a happy birthday –his 22nd — scoring 26 points and grabbing 13 rebounds.
Kobe Bryant led all scorers with 33 points. Eric Gordon led the Clippers with 21 points. Chris Kaman had 18 points and 16 rebounds.
Baron Davis had an awful night from the field (1 for 10) and scored just two points in 28 minutes. He did have eight assists though.
