>Congrats to Kobe Bryant!

Kobe was 20 points behind Celtics legend John Havlicek for 11th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.
With the Lakers riding a 3-game win streak, they went into Chicago to face Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls.
The Lakers went on a 14-0 run in the 1st quarter, quickly putting the Bulls in a hole. At the end of the first quarter the Lakers led 22-12. Then the Bulls went on their own run to end the second quarter, 19-3 putting them ahead at halftime. It was a horrible shooting half by both teams. Bulls led 36-32.
Lakers continued to not play defense in the third quarter, allowing the Bulls to score 30 points. Bulls went into the 4th with an 8 point lead. Derrick Rose was impressive with 29 points, including 9 coming in the fourth. This was the first time the Bulls have beaten the Lakers since 2006.
Next up on the list is (#10) Dominique Wilkins, who has 26,668 points. If Kobe keeps the same pace all season long, he could end up at #6.
Box Score: LA Lakers 84 CHI Bulls 88
