The LAkers Story - The Night Kobe Only Got 43

The Lakers continued their five-game winning streak with Sunday night’s 115-113 win over the Golden State Warriors. Kobe Bryant did not stretch his 50+ points game streak to five, scoring (only) 43 points. Lamar Odom was also instrumental with 24 points and 19 rebounds.

The game turned out to be a nail-biter when Golden State’s Stephen Jackson dropped a three-pointer with 1.9 seconds to go, making it a one-point game, but a free throw by Kobe brought the Lakers lead to two and Golden State missed their last shot.

On Tuesday night, the Lakers once again play the Memphis Grizzlies, who they beat last Thursday night.
