LA Lakers defeat Houston Rockets 105-100. True the Lakers can't win pretty, but who cares? With the injuries to Jordon Farmar, Sasha Vujacic and Luke Walton forcing Derek Fisher to log a lot of minutes on those aged wheels. Even Sun Yue had to log three minutes in this game. Lamar Odom was back in action after his bruised bone injury to score ten points in 27 minutes of play. Kobe led all scorers with 33 points. However former Laker Von Wafer had a career game scoring 23 points and seemed unstoppable for three quarters. But Kobe finally shut him down in the fourth quarter and gave the Lakers a nailbiting win in Houston.
- Daily News' Tom Hoffarth in his "Further Off the Wall" blog has the complete list of the American Sportscasters Association's Top 50 sportscasters of all time which was topped by none other than Vin Scully. Chick Hearn was only 21? And how the hell does Joe Buck (31), Chris Berman (35) and Bill Walton (39) outrank Harry Kalas (41)? Very interesting.
