Lakers get payback against Pacers 109-94
Reporting from Indianapolis —
Bad idea to party outside the Lakers’ locker room.
The final score said it all: Lakers 109, Pacers 94.
“They had a real issue about it,” Coach Phil Jackson said of the Lakers. “I think the Pacers came back and kind of celebrated in the hallways in Staples and these guys remember that. They came back with that, ‘Let’s get after them.’ “
They certainly did, taking a 29-10 lead and cruising from there.
Gasol was thoroughly outplayed by Indiana center Roy Hibbert when the Pacers beat the Lakers on Nov. 28, 95-92, but Gasol was the easy winner in the rematch at Conseco Fieldhouse.
Lamar Odom continued his steady play
