The Los Angeles Lakers won tonight (!), their second in a row (!!), on the back of a great game from Kobe Bryant (!!!). Old man Kobe had 27 points, and not a single turnover. He, of course, shot 10-for-24, but hey, it’s Kobe, that’s what you’re gonna get.
That said, we’d be remiss if we were to ignore these two, uh, let’s say, sub-optimal defensive plays. Up top there, we’ve got Ryan Anderson, not much of a dunker, yamming on Kobe, and down here, we have a collective unraveling that’s more on Brandon Bass than anyone.
Will the Lakers make it three against the Spurs on Saturday?
