What a game for #24 tonight! What’s more impressive?
19-31 shooting, 20-20 freethrows, or 61 points! Poor Gasol with his 31 points, 14 boards, 5 assists, and 2 blocks — and no one even cares. Even Luke had a decent game and is unnoticed.
Kobe broke the all-time points record in a game at the Garden Monday night. As a team, the Lakers took care of business offensevily. 53% shooting, 7-16 threes, 52 boards, 25 assists en route to 126 points.
This really was a fun one to watch. Kobe really embarrassed the Knicks and the other Lakers had some fun too.
Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker Performers –
1) Our MVP came through with 61 tonight. That’s all I need.
2) Pau had a monster game! 31 points on 12-17 shooting. A beast tonight.
3) Ariza was all over the place again. 6-9 shooting for the only other Laker in double figures. Also had 8 boards.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Sasha did nothing tonight. His highlight was missing a jumper so Trevor could dunk the miss in.
Play of the Game: Ariza’s tip dunk or Kobe’s spinning J.
What to Look for Next Game: Another high scoring game in Toronto Wednesday night. Don’t they always play on Sunday morning though?
