All those incredible I was season's worth of highlight plays in one corner pretty much I mean you look at those two plays it's an out to me. The one where he drove around Grant Hill went into the two handed dunk and then out next time down the court. Took pass from Matt Barnes reverse -- you -- -- really got the crowd go -- saw he made the highlight plays -- pull up jumpers and his free throws he did everything. Would like another kind of a weird game to the Lakers you figure they're gonna struggle again against another. 500 or below team Phoenix coming with a 44 record Lakers kind of messing around for three quarters. -- -- -- they were without four players Jason Kapono home with -- new twin daughters. Derrick Caracter still -- was surgery. Josh McRoberts still having problems with his big toe and Troy Murphy. Not feeling well kind of intestinal flu type thing very depleted team but Luke Walton had six points and -- rebounds and pretty good effort off the bench.

With some big baskets some big hustle plays rebounds and really the boost the Lakers needed to go to win this game tonight.
