This game just got more exciting my the minute. Unfortunately I had to watch the game without volume, so I missed all the fun with Kobe and Artest, but this was a thriller.
Kobe had an MVP-like performance in tonight’s come from behind victory over Houston. With Odom out, it was all the starters tonight.
The Lakers forced the Rockets into 5-28 threes and forced 23 turnovers! The Lakers themselves shot 50% and had 15 steals. Kobe really took the game over and carried the Lakers tonight.
Great to see the team win a big game on the road with Lamar out.
Now, the bests of the night…
