Oct 19: Lakers 112, Raptors 89Posted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports: Jordan Farmar scored 16 points and sparked a fourth-quarter surge with an electrifying dunk over Chris Bosh, leading the Los Angeles Lakers to a 112-89 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night. Kobe Bryant had 13 points and six assists in 24 minutes before sitting out the fourth quarter. Trevor Ariza also was a factor in the final period, scoring six of his 14 points. Lamar Odom, still adjusting to his new role as a reserve, had 10 points in 19 minutes. Anthony Parker led Toronto with 14 points. Just 16 days earlier, Parker’s sister Candace - who plays for the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks - became the first player to be honored as that league’s MVP and rookie of the year in the same season.
