What does that mean for Chris Kaman, who dominated the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night in a surprise 115-99 Lakers' victory? In 32 minutes, Kaman scored 28 points with 17 rebounds and six assists. "After a monster game like last night, it's hard to bench a guy like that, even not play him," said Gasol of Kaman. "You've got to give him some credit and understand that he's a valuable piece, one of our best pieces." Kaman has called the season frustrating, playing a much smaller role than he anticipated when he signed a one-year deal with the Lakers over the summer. In 38 appearances, Kaman is averaging 10.3 points in 18.6 minutes -- getting most of his opportunities when Gasol sat out 14 games with a variety of ailments. Los Angeles Times
