The Los Angeles Lakers looked to bounce back from their January overtime loss in Chicago, but instead fell short against the Bulls at Staples Center. In the third quarter, Steve Nash left the game as a “precaution,” after experiencing nerve irritation in the same area of his leg that he fractured last year. After the game, Mike D’Antoni said he expects Nash to be ready to play on Tuesday. Chris Kaman, who had a season-high 27 points outlines his personal frustrations. And, Wes Johnson addresses the inevitability of a banged up team without a decent number of able bodies available.
