The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Chicago Bulls 116-109. While it was not a blowout, it is seen as a nice rebound after LA's loss to the Pistons. Kobe Bryant took a back seat to PauGasol, who scored 34 points with 6 rebounds. Kobe had 21 points, and Andrew Bynum nearly had a double-double with 18 points and 9 boards. Derick Rose and Ben Gordon led the Bulls, Rose with 25 points with 9 assists and Gordon gave 23 points. The Lakers look to keep things going against Shaq and the rival Suns tomorrow.
