Lakers 117, Warriors 89

Pau Gasol couldn’t miss tonight, scoring 28 points on 10-for-10 shooting. He also made all eight of his free-throw attempts. He grabbed nine rebounds and added five assists, and he didn’t play a second in the fourth quarter. The Lakers thumped the Warriors, defeating Golden State for the 11th consecutive time. The Lakers have won four in a row after their two-game losing streak. Kobe Bryant added 20 points, Lamar Odom had 15 points and a team-leading 10 rebounds and Shannon Brown scored 17. Next: Chicago on Tuesday.

“It was a good positive night,” Gasol said. “I wasn’t thinking about it during the game. I was just trying to capitalize on the good passes of my teammates and opportunities. I’m always trying to be efficient and effective at all times.”

Wilt Chamberlain holds the Lakers’ franchise record by making 14 of 14 shots during a game March 11, 1969 against the Detroit Pistons.
