CP3 had only two points, but piled up seven assists to help get his teammates action. Caron Butler had 13 points and Blake Griffin had 12, with Mo Williams adding eight off the bench.
Pau Gasol is leading the Lakers with 7 of 9 shooting and 17 points, with Andrew Goudelock adding 10 points off the bench by nailing all four of his shots.
