Well we can add another injury for Kobe; this time it’s his tooth…

O.C. Register: Kobe Bryant had one of his upper front teeth knocked backward when he took an elbow from Leandro Barbosa in the third quarter and will see Lakers team dentist Jeffrey Hoy as soon as the Lakers return to Los Angeles tonight.

Lakers trainer Gary Vitti yanked the tooth back into place rather than let it stay dislodged, but Bryant likely still needs further treatment. “It feels like Roger the Rabbit,” Bryant said.

    I hope that hit will wake him up….I think the back to back L’s are because he has gone back to kobe from 05

    I thought the refs were favoring the home team today. Lamar got called for stuff that weren’t actually fouls. Shaq got away with using his off arm (offensive fouls) or charging into Gasol (offensive fouls) but never called.

    the refs have been a joke this season. not just with the lakers, but any game. the officiating this year is worse than ever. it doesn’t help that they seem to make it as tough on the lakers as they can.

    I hope the Lakers front office got the memo that Drew Gooden was bought out by Sacramento today. We have to sign this guy before the 12am est deadline so that he’s available for the playoffs!

    WTF Stu Jackson! Why don’t you review that elbow by Leandro Barbosa, you stupid punk ass! You’re trying to keep the game clean right? Well, where’s the assessment afterward? All of us Lakers fans will be waiting for your (in)action!
