But the big win was overshadowed by a bizarre ending.
Because of injuries, the Lakers had eight available players coming into the game; only 7 of them got dressed.
Nick Young twisted his left knee in the first half, in the fourth quarter Chris Kaman fouled out and Jordan Farmar left with leg cramps leaving the Lakers with just five players!
Then with just over three minutes left in the game Robert Sacre gets slapped with his 6th foul leaving only 4 available Lakers to play. So now what?!
By rule, each side has to have five players on the court at all times, and since Sacre was the only healthy player left he was allowed to stay in.
Lakers would hang on to win a very rare game; talk about some foul play in the NBA!
