The Lakers dominated the Pacers last night 134-114 with Kobe Bryant scoring 26 of his 32 points in the first half alone. The Lakers just continued to break away in the 3rd quarter getting quality play from their bench again. Kobe again proved his dominance over the league as you wondered during the 2nd quarter as he hit 4 straight three pointers if there was anyone on the floor that wasn’t a waste of his time! Kobe’s comments on the game as asked afterward:
“It feels great,” he said. “Everybody’s contributing. When we have games like tonight, particularly when we’re on the road, that’s when everybody gains confidence and really starts finding their groove.” Well said Kobe! You guys played very well. And in the midst of two key players being traded that day off the team you did a great job at leading your team to victory and staying focused on the task at hand.
This win is particularly impressive for many reasons. One of which is the fact that the past 3 seasons they would not have won this game. Just like last year they went into Indiana and should have beat the Pacers but somehow found a way to come out with a loss. Good sign for all those in Lakerland hoping to have a successful season. But don’t get too excited. The Lakers organization still has some holes to fill in repairing their relationship with Kobe Bryant. They need to give him one more solid player on the roster to help him bring L.A a championship.
