Ouch! The Bobcats again? Really? They didn’t even play that well and they beat us.
Kobe goes for 38, Bynum continues to dominate, and we lose… But we learned tonight. 1) We are lucky that we only play the Bobcats twice a year and 2) Maybe Kobe really is the MVP since we play like the Clippers without him.
On a positive note, I want to congratulate Andrew on his award for Western Conference Player of the Week and his fourth straight double-double.
Also, get well soon Ariza!
Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker Performers –
1) Kobe did everything he could, 38 points on 15-28 shooting, 8 boards, 5 assists, and a steal.
2) Bynum had 24, 14 and 6 blocks. I would say it was a Shaq like performance, but he hit 4-5 freethrows.
3) Offensively Fisher did well, with 14 and 6, but he gave up a near triple double to Felton, so I don’t have a number 3 tonight.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Pau had his worst night as a Laker. 10 points on 16 shots. Also 3 turnovers.
Play of the Game: Fisher’s three to send it into OT.
What to Look for Next Game: Should be an easy win Friday night vs O.J. Mayo and the T-Wolves.
