Kendrick Perkins Reacts To Los Angeles Lakers’ Big Win: “The Lakers Played Straight Bully Ball Tonight.”

NBA Fans Exploded After Kendrick Perkins Chose His Top 75 NBA Players Of All Time: "I'm Triggered At The Ridiculousness Of Your List"

Finally, Lakers Nation is in high spirits following their commanding victory last night. The Los Angeles Lakers hosted the Boston Celtics at Staples Center and successfully evened out the season series.

Although it was a near-perfect performance, there is still a lot more work to be done on both ends of the floor. But such an impressive display against a storied franchise like the Celtics, who utterly destroyed them in their last meeting, was a welcome development.

Former player and now basketball analyst Kendrick Perkins reacted to the Lakers 117-102 win over the Celtics and could not hide his excitement with how the team performed.

"The Lakers played straight Bully Ball tonight. That has to be there identity on the offensive end... attacking the basket and living in the paint! Russ did a great job of not settling tonight. AD did more than a solid job controlling that paint! Bron was just on his GOAT shyt!"

Perkins has been vocal about the Lakers' struggles so far, attributing it to teams not being scared of them. But he has given them props on occasions where they put together impressive performances.

Pundits have commented on how the Lakers have not dominated the paint throughout this season, but they are starting to do that. In this game, they had 66 points in the paint, compared to the Celtics' 42. Converting on those high-percentage shots will be key as they have often relied on long-range shots, which has not fallen for them as much.

The Lakers have shown they can dominate a game from start to finish. All they need now is consistency. They have not won four consecutive games at any point in the season. For any chance at finishing in the top six, they will need to put together a winning run.

The win against the Celtics has moved the Lakers to sixth place in the Western Conference standings. Although they are 7.5 games behind the Golden State Warriors, who sit atop of the table, they have a good chance of finishing in the top four if they can be consistent with their performances.
