If you missed this game, you missed the NBA at its best. It was the first time two teams with as few as a combined seven losses have played against each other.
It was the East leader and the West leader, and the West was best! The Lakers are out to get revenge for last year's NBA Finals Playoff loss.
This was a good way to make a statement. The Lakers are officially prime time!
