Los Angeles, Feb 21 — With their owner Jerry Buss passing away Monday, the Los Angeles Lakers posted an emotional win over the Boston Celtics in NBA league.

Buss was remembered before the game, and Kobe Bryant gave a speech.

"On Monday, we lost what we all know to be the greatest owner in sports, ever," Bryant was quoted as saying by Xinhua Wednesday.

"He was a brilliant, incredible owner, but he was even a better person with a great heart. His vision transcended the game, and we are all spoiled by his vision and by his drive to win year after year after year. "

The Lakers were behind for a while in the opening quarter, then they dominated the board, as well as the game, and led all the way to the end for a 113-99 result. The Lakers had 49 rebounds comparing the Celtics' 34.

Dwight Howard had 24 points and 12 rebounds while Bryant added 16 points. Steve Nash contributed 14 points and 7 assists, giving him 10,144 assists while passing Magic Johnson for sole possession of fourth place on the career list.

Celtics' Pierce scored 26 points, Courtney Lee had.

On the surface, Byron Scott makes sense as the new head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers.

How LeBron James Can Help Dion Waiters Become the Next Dwyane Wade

Jul 28 2014 9:45pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Miami Heat might’ve been an aging goliath, but compared to the alternative LeBron James now faces with the Cleveland Cavaliers—youth and talent, sure, but with baggage enough for an airport claim—you can’t say he took the easy way out. It doesn’t help that James leaves behind two Hall of Famers, of course. Unless, however, King James is able to do something almost as difficult as bringing a banner to his title-starved state: turning ...

LeBron Can’t Even Pick His Own Number Without Controversy

Jul 27 2014 7:22pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

When you’re LeBron James, even a simple thing like choosing your number comes with loads of carry-on baggage. Of course he was No, 6 with the Miami Heat, which he changed from No. 23 when he was originally with the Cavaliers. And as you know, earlier today LeBron announced on Instagram (wow) that he’s going back to No. 23, now that he’s back with the Cavs. Because, math. 23 it is! It's only right I ...
