Dallas, TX (Sports Network) - Antawn Jamison amassed 19 points and 15 rebounds
to pace a balanced scoring attack that propelled the Los Angeles Lakers to a
long-awaited first road win of the season, a 115-89 dismantling of the Dallas
Mavericks at American Airlines Center.
In by far their most impressive performance under new head coach Mike
D'Antoni, the Lakers had six players finish with double-figure points and
dominated the glass in halting a two-game losing streak. Kobe Bryant and Metta
World Peace also netted 19 points, with Dwight Howard compiling 15 points and
five steals in the rout.
Los Angeles, which improved to 2-2 under D'Antoni's command, owned a lopsided
61-39 rebounding advantage, limited the Mavericks to 37 percent shooting and
led by as many as 37 points
Vince Carter had 16 points and Jae Crowder posted a career-high 15 in Dallas'
sixth defeat in nine games following a 4-1 start to the season.
