Kobe Bryant scored 23 points while seven other Lakers scored in double digits as the Lakers beat up on the Seattle Supersonics 130-105. The game gave time at the end for reserves like Cobe Karl and Ira Newble (newly signed forward) to play and showcase their skills. Luke Walton scored 17 points all in the fourth quarter giving Kobe Bryant, Lamar, and Derek Fisher time to rest during the fourth quarter.
On a couple occasions, Kobe was caught guarding phenom rookie Kevin Durrant out on the perimeter. If you missed the game it’s too bad because you probably missed Kobe shutting down Durrant. It shows yet again another wanna be superstar who can’t live up to the challenge of going up against Kobe Bryant! Sad!
