The Lakers snapped their 3 game losing streak at home Tuesday night against the Raptors. All it took was a fourth quarter comeback capped by a game winner from none other than Kobe Bryant.
After Bosh hit a three in the closing seconds, Kobe answered with a fadeaway jumper with just over a second remaining to give the Lakers a 109-107 victory.
The Lakers simply didn’t play hard in the first half, giving up 58 points to Toronto and couldn’t hit a shot from downtown ending 3 of 15.
While it was an ugly win, it was much needed. The Lakers need to get some wins with Denver creeping up on them in the standings.
The starting Laker bigs offensively did well with 39 points combined, but did a poor job on the glass as the Lakers only got 40 rebounds as a team, allowing 11 offensive boards.
Now, the bests of the day…
Top 3 Laker Performers -
1) Kobe had 32, 6 and 6 with a game winner!
2) Bynum had 22 points on 8 of 12 shooting.
3) Lamar had 10, 8 and 5 off the bench. Another solid game.
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Shannon shot 2 of 9 and just didn’t have it tonight.
Play of the Night: What do you think?
