When the Lakers are focused it is most apparent after halftime.
The Lakers, after playing a sieve defensive style for a majority of the 1st half, came out focused and took it to the Clippers lead by the Mamba as the Lakers coasted to a 108-95 victory.
That is three wins in a row for the Lakers whose next game is Sunday versus the new look Oklahoma City Thunder.
Kobe left the game with a few minutes before halftime with an apparent elbow injury. No worries. Kobe came out and asserted himself in the 3rd scoring 18 points to effectively end the game.
Lakers appear ready for the home stretch and they will only get deeper as Matt Barnes is expected to return soon.
