It was a disastrous evening for the Los Angeles Lakers. Not only did they come up four points short in a must-win game, they lost Kobe Bryant to an ankle injury in the final seconds. Bryant (31 PTS, 7 REB, 5 AST, 2 STL) is very unhappy with Dahntay Jones over the play and there are no details yet about a recovery timetable, but it’s being called a severe sprain and he’s out indefinitely.
It was a very busy night in the NBA last night as 11 games were on the schedule. For those of you who enjoy choices, you had your share of stars in NBA sky last night, as nine of the top 10 scorers and seven of the top 10 rebounders were in action.
The Heat make any argument about them going undefeated for the rest of the season more and more legitimate with their 20th straight victory last night in Philadelphia, the Knicks – and I don’t use this term lightly – quit on their fans, coaches and teammates for he second straight game, the Lakers not only lost to the Hawks but also could lose Kobe Bryant for a stretch after he – in his own words – had a “Jalen Rose” pulled on him and the Kings dominated the Bulls, who like the Knicks seem to be falling apart down the stretch.
