Well, I am really impressed with this win. The Lakers played near-perfect basketball. (except turnovers)
Mihm.........excellent game, but don't count on that happening again for at least 10 games.
Kwame, good on D.
George, aggressive D but nothing moe.
Smush played another flawless game, hitting shots when needed and having very few if any turnovers. He is the surprise of the season so far. I am very impressed.
Now, Kobe and Lamar both played phenomenal. Lamar did his thing. 20 points, along with 8 rebounds and 4 assists. He played well. However, Kobe was the man ...............again. He played so well despite not getting ANY calls in his favor when driving to the hoop. As long as he hits that jumper, he's unstoppable. What impresses me most is, is his efficiency in his scoring. He's not forcing anything. You may all want him to drive to the basket more, but keep in mind that every time he does, he is disrupting the ball movement in the system. As well, the refs haven't given him any calls in the paint thus far and expending energy and risking injury are not things we need from him. Kobe is leading the league in scoring and efficiency, that is insane considering the reboudning bigs dominate effiency usually.
Kobe, if you continue to play this way all season, the MVP is yours my man. Keep it up.
