BRYANT, FISHER IN ‘PLAYOFFS MODE’ AS LAKERS BEAT BLAZERS, 84-80
Mon, 21 Mar 2011 06:22 PM EDT

With less than 13 games left to begin the Playoffs, Lakers’ veteran guard Derek Fisher reminded every one that there is a high quality, crunch-time closer back there besides Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol in the line-up. Vegas odds.

It is clear that D-Fish is not the star of the team, but when it comes to contribute with top notch clutch performances, the guy is there jump into the spotlight.

With his 15th year into the league, the veteran managed to lead the Lakers late in the 4th quarter with vital interventions in both ends of the court by making back-to-back defensive plays and knocking down a decisive jumper with less than 10 seconds left in the game.

Los Angeles have won 12 of their last 13 games since the All-Star break. This time their victims were the Portland Trail Blazers who suffered the 84-80 defeat at Staples Center on Sunday night.

Laker’s center Andrew Bynum didn’t play due to a suspension, but it was not a problem since his teammates managed to take over the game. Betting lines.

Kobe Bryant had an outstanding 4th quarter in which he scored 10 of his 22 points. Lamar Odom who lined up in Bynum’s place, contributed with 16 points and 11 boards, Gasol scored 18 points and pulled down 13 rebounds, while Derek Fisher finished with just 8 points, nevertheless he was the guy stepping up for the Lakers when things got ugly during the final stretch. Bryant described D-Fish as a great shooter and a player who knows how to make the big plays when the game is on the line.

Both Bryant and Fisher have won 5 NBA titles together as teammates in Los Angeles, two of them without the presence of Shaquille O’Neal.

This victory helped the Lakers clinch a playoff berth, got them their fourth straight Pacific Division title and achieve their 50th win this regular season.

Portland didn’t play bad either, things just did’t work out for them during the final decisive seconds. Nicolas Batum finished the game with 25 points, but he completely disappeared in the forth quarter. 7 footer LaMarcus Aldridge scored 18 points, and center Marcus Camby grabbed 10 boards before leaving the game with an injured ankle.

The Trail Blazers are sitting at the 6th position in the Western Conference and they’ll probably face the Dallas Mavericks in the playoffs, while the 2nd seeded L.A.
