What a fourth quarter for Kobe Bryant..
First his heroics against Dallas, now Sacramento. What made this win much sweeter was that it was IN Arco against the KINGS. I know this rivalry has lost heat over the years, but I still hold onto it lol. I loved those "MVP" chants. Isn't it great to hear those at away games?
I think I'm taking our having of Kobe Bryant for granted. Seriously, there are only two players in the league right now who coaches can trust to take over the 4th quarter and pull a come-from-behind win; they are Kobe Bryant and Lebron James. When we're down, we're very fortunate (very being an understatement) to have a player of Kobe Bryant's caliber to bring us back. For any other team, it would be much more difficult to erase a deficit like that, mostly with a collective team effort. He can single handedly take over a game. I don't want to rely on him too often though.
Gasol got it done tonight, as well as Fish and LO. I don't know why the Zen Master gave Luke so many minutes tonight. He gave a less than average performance on both ends of the court. I hope tonight was just an off game for him. Sasha should have been played more, in my opinion. And now for the question that has been pestering the minds of Laker fans for almost two months now:
When is Bynum coming back?
