Tonight the Lakers recorded their first win of the season with Kobe Bryant back in the lineup. The Lakers kept the Bobcats from scoring in the final 2:49 of the game and held on for a 88-85 win.

After the win, Bryant was interviewed by TWC Sports Net reporter Mike Truddel, and joked about Pau Gasol dropping some of his passes during the game.

“I’ma light into him a little bit because he’s killing me getting turnovers because he can’t catch the damn ball,” Bryant said with a smile on his face. “So I’m going to get into his Spaniard behind when we get into the locker room.”

Gasol struggled a bit early in the game, but played excellent on the defensive end of the floor down the stretch of Saturday night’s game. He forced two Al Jefferson missed layups and blocked two of his other shot attempts in the Bobcats final five possessions of the game.

Gasol also scored the Lakers final two points with a pair of clutch free throws to give the Lakers a three point lead with six seconds left in the game, which followed a pair of Bryant free throws to give the Lakers the lead. Check out the video below.
