The Lakers managed to split their four games in Week 8, despite playing without their primary point guards.
The week started slowly with a poor second half in a 114-100 loss to the Hawks in Atlanta.
The Lakers responded the next night, winning in Memphis, 96-92, over the Grizzlies.
The Lakers signed Kendall Marshall to a non-guaranteed contract Friday.

The Lakers need to improve defensively, giving up the second-most points per game in NBA.
The Lakers pulled out a 104-91 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night with a big finish from Gasol.
Chris Kaman, who had been out of the team's rotation for almost a month, gave a strong performance after finally getting minutes.
D'Antoni said the Kobe-less Lakers are "excited" about proving people wrong but Saturday proved to be a difficult night.
While newcomer Marshall was available Friday, he didn't get a chance until Saturday. His debut wasn't exactly impressive with multiple turnovers and no assists.
With Gasol missing his first game of the season, the Lakers fielded their 12th different starting lineup in 27 games.
