LOS ANGELES, CA –

Continuing to tick a long like the little engine that could, the Los Angeles Lakers halted a last minute serge by the Hawks to pull out a 105-103 victory. lat-lakers-la0012163095-20131103

Pau Gasol delivered the game winning blow by making two free throws with six seconds remaining on the clock then ran back in time to block Kyle Korver and crush the Hawk’s hopes of overtime.

Showing a complete lapse in offense AND defense, the Lakers gave up a 21 point lead and nearly gave the game away. Gasol finished with 16 points and 13 rebounds. Steve Nash hit double figures with 13 points. Nick Young also had 13 off the bench. With this victory, the lakers reach .500, woo too! (Homer Simpson voice)

The Lakers play next on Tuesday night in Dallas against the Mavericks.
