Los Angeles Lakers/NBA(LOS ANGELES) —  The Los Angeles Lakers continued their hot home streak on Tuesday night, taking care of the Charlotte Bobcats (3-19), 106-73.

The Lakers (13-9) are 11-2 now at home this season and will be headed back on the road where they are 2-7. Kobe Bryant contributed 24 points and Andrew Bynum dropped in 20 of his own in the blowout.

They’ll head to Denver next while the Staples Center plays host to the Grammys.

“We just got to do our job, that’s all. Go out, play hard, play physical and rebound the ball,” Bryant said. “These road losses that we’ve had, the consistent factor has been teams getting on the offensive boards against us and we have to do a much better job of that.”

The Lakers’ reserves out-scored the Bobcats’ bench 48-30; Lakers’ fans are hoping to get that same production on the road.
