It's foolish to read too much into one game -- remember, the Bobcats beat the Pacers to start last season -- but it's also the fun of opening night. The Lakers reclaimed their town, or so the narrative will spin, at least until they touch down in Oakland on Wednesday morning. Regardless of what transpires over the next 80 games, none in L.A. can be more entertaining, more surprising, more rollicking, than the first.
