We highlighted some of the more interesting numbers from the Lakers’ 10th win of the season, coming on Wednesday night in Detroit.
2 Double-doubles amassed in three quarters of work for Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom. Gasol had 25 points and 12 rebounds, while Odom had 13 and 10.
4 Road wins in five tries for the Lakers (Phoenix, Sacramento, Milwaukee and Detroit), with the lone loss coming in Denver last week.
24 First half points for Kobe Bryant on an efficient 8-of-11 shooting. Bryant had the whole arsenal working, including two three-pointers, a spinning fadeaway on the baseline, up-and-under drives to the hoop, pump-fake jumpers and more. He’d finish with 33 points in three quarters of work before sitting out the fourth in a blow out.
26 L.A.’s biggest lead in a game it thoroughly dominated. The Pistons led by one early in the first quarter.
31 Rebounds corralled by L.A.’s three best offensive players in three quarters, as Bryant added nine boards to the 22 total from Odom and Gasol.
38 Combined points scored by the Pistons in the second and third quarters, during which the Lakers scored 25 in each to create a 21-point lead heading into the fourth quarter.
