How about those Lakers?

The Lakers record fell to 0-3 after they lost to the Clippers, 105-95, on Friday night. Jamal Crawford led the Clippers with 21 points off the bench (the Lakers got a total of 16 points from their bench.) Kobe Bryant had 40 for the Lakers. Steve Nash missed the game with his first injury of the season.

The Lakers also lost all eight games in the pre-season, so the fans and columnists are getting restless. But Kobe is urging patience.
