  • Pau Gasol notched his fifth career triple-double and Andrew Bynum poured home a game-high 31 points Wednesday as the Los Angeles Lakers dominated the undersized and outmanned Golden State Warriors 99-87.

    Gasol had 22 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists as Los Angeles (40-23) won for the fifth time in the last seven games without Kobe Bryant, who told ESPN during its broadcast that he plans to return from his left shin injury Friday against San Antonio.
    Bynum shot 12-for-14 from the floor and hit all seven of his free throws to help the Lakers stay a half-game ahead of the Clippers (39-23) in their race for the Pacific Division crown and No. 3 seed in the Western Conference playoffs.

    With Bynum & Gasol putting in these numbers, as well as great contribution from Metta & Barnes; the Lakers are looking playoff ready. Kobe is expected to play on Friday against the Spurs, one could say the Lakers are getting their rhythm just in time for April 28th.
