Tuesday was Pau Gasol’s day as the 7-foot Spaniard scored a season high 34 points in the Lakers’ 116-109 win over the Bulls. A lot of those points came in transition, the flashiest on a fast-break dunk off a behind-the-back pass from Kobe Bryant.
Asked after the game whether Gasol gets enough credit for his ability to run the floor, Bryant said: “I don’t know. He’s obviously a great athletic big man that can run and get up and down. He might be the best in the league at doing that. We play pretty well together, ever since he got here it’s been like second nature.”
