19-11. They just went 3-3 on a road trip without Lamar Odom. Could be worse. They must improve their defense if they want to compete with San Antonio, Dallas and Utah.
Tonight they lost a triple overtime game to a bad team, the Charlotte Bobcats, 133-124. Bad teams seem to get up for the Lakers. It was the Lakers' first triple overtime since 1980. There was too much Kobe like last year. The superstar tried to win it himself and scored 58 points. His energy sapped by the long road trip and the flu, Kobe's body was exhausted by the third overtime.
Will Chris Mihm come back from his injury this year? They could use him.
UPDATE: Mihm underwent ankle surgery on December 7 and will take 6-8 months to recover. He is out for the season.
