It wasn’t pretty but back to back road games are rough and I will take any win I can get.
This thrilling win took an extra five minutes before Kobe put it away at the buzzer. He’s game winner was a true game winner — down one… it’s win or lose.
The Lakers definitely played down to their competition tonight. They shot the ball poorly again from behind the arc and turned the ball over a lot. Kobe really stepped up his game in the second half after shooting only 3 of 9 in the first half.
The Bucks started out red hot from three point land but cooled off as they finished only 10 of 29. The Lakers were even worse hitting only 4 of 20.
Pau continues to dominate the paint with his rebounding… he has to be around 80 boards over the past four games.
Now, the bests of the day…
Top 3 Laker Performers –
1) Kobe again makes number one… game winner to cap off his 39 points.
2) 26 and 22 from Pau tonight. Doesn’t get much better than that.
3) Odom had another good game… no Laker really did amazing besides Kobe and Pau, but 8 and 7 from Lamar was great off the bench.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Bynum again didn’t do much for the Lakers…
Play of the Night: Kobe at the buzzer.
What to Look for Next Game: Lakers fly up to New Jersey saturday night to battle the Nets in a rare Saturday night game. Should be a blowout.
