Kobe Bryant's 26.9 points per game, 5.1 rebounds per game, and 5.1 assists per game have paced the Lakers (8-8), while former Magic center Dwight Howard has been averaging a double-double (18.6 PPG and 11.1 RPG). Metta World Peace is scoring 13.1 PPG to go with 5.4 RPG and Pau Gasol is adding 12.7 PPG and 8.9 RPG.
