Mike D'Antoni coaching debut for Lakers coming soon

In their first game after Mike D’Antoni got to town, the Lakers reached the 100-point plateau with 9:26 still left in the contest Friday night against Phoenix.

In the follow-up Sunday night, the Lakers got there with 11:16 to play in their 119-108 victory over the Houston Rockets at Staples Center.

Just imagine all the garish point totals and lopsided victories once D’Antoni actually coaches a game. Or Steve Nash’s leg heals.

Lakers fans certainly can start thinking about how good this will get with their team at 5-5 after starting 1-4 under Mike Brown.

D’Antoni decided about three hours before tipoff Sunday to give his reconstructed right knee more time to heal before his Lakers debut, probably Tuesday night against Brooklyn.
