Hell yeah! grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
After 15 games in 25 days, the Lakers were told to stay home Saturday, their first non-basketball day in weeks.
“It’s beautiful,” forward Artest said. “It’s definitely necessary. I know Kobe needs it. He’s been working hard. And Gasol and Drew . It’s great. It’s perfect timing.”
The Lakers deserved a day off after a strategic 107-97 victory Friday over Denver. Artest was scored a season-high 19 points and helping force Carmelo Anthony into a rough night (23 points on 10-for-24 shooting).
