Without Bynum, Lakers beat Nets 91-87

The Lakers were able to hold on and win after blowing a 17 point lead to the Nets. Andrew Bynum sat out with a sprained ankle. Josh McRoberts got the start and made little impact on the stat sheet. On the other hand, both Gasol and Sessions had double-doubles. Kobe added 24 including the three pointer to put the game away with 10.1seconds left.
The Lakers completely dominated for the first three quarter but opened the fourth quarter missing 13 of their first 16 shots. The Nets were able to tie it up with 1:11 left but thanks to some crunch time heroics by Kobe Bryant the Lakers were able to hold on. 
The Lakers will stay in LA for a road game against the Clippers which has major implication on playoff seeding. Andrew Bynum will once again be a game time decision.
