Tuesday night time was the loudest of the goat-based reactions, and for good trigger. The Lakers surged into seventh within the west with a 135-133 time beyond regulation win in opposition to the Jazz, in a sport the place LeBron dominated with 37 factors, 5 rebounds and 6 assists.
After an embarrassing begin to the season the Lakers have caught fireplace for the reason that All Star break, going 15-6 and shifting from a workforce destined to overlook the postseason, to pushing for a spot within the play-in match, and now cementing themselves as a High 8 workforce, until a drastic collapse occurs down the stretch.
The whole lot goes proper for Los Angeles proper now, so let the goat sounds roll.
