It was a bad game, and I don't know if the Lakers can beat us (Ron Artest won't go for 26 against us again anytime soon), but Bynum has always been a HUGE problem for us, and the only thing that has kept him from killing us year after year is his injury problem.
This Laker team is much improved at the PG position. We have been abusing them with TP for a decade now and they haven't had an answer. Well, Ramon Sessions can hang with TP fairly well athletically. And we have no answer for the Gasol/Bynum combo inside. So the gap between us and the Lakers doesn't look so big anymore.
