The L.A. Lakers are without Kobe Bryant again this season and are down three of the team's starting point guards. The Lakers have used Steve Nash, Steve Blake & Jordan Farmar so far. Lakers' fans, coaches, teammates have been counting down the seconds until former all-star Steve Nash returns. Last night, the Lakers played the Jazz and gave the point guard from UNC a chance to start. Kendall Marshall did not disappoint anyone at all. At UNC as a sophomore, Marshall set an ACC single season record by recording 351 assists.
L.A. crushed Utah last night 110-99. That wasn't even the best part of the night for the Lakers. Kendall Marshall played outstanding and notched career highs in three stat categories. Marshall scored 20 points, grabbed 6 rebounds and dished out 15 assists. Is Marshall can play half this well and lead the Lakers to some more victories, fans will soon forget about Steve Nash until Marshall comes back down to earth. Marshall has only starred in one game this season, but he will certainly have his chance.
