SIDELINED
Pau Gasol sat out the Los Angeles Lakers' 103-91 victory at Washington on Sunday, not quite ready to play for his new team because of a sore back, a whirlwind 48 hours and an unfamiliarity with the triangle offense. Memphis traded Gasol to the Lakers on Friday.

FAST START
in a first half this season.

SPEAKING
``He's just better in person.'' - Washington's Nick Young on Kobe Bryant. Young, who grew up in California as a Lakers and Bryant fan, saw the Lakers' superstar score 30 points on 10-of-15 shooting in a 103-91 win at Washington on Sunday.
