>Lakers Best Win Of The Season

Tonight’s game against the Portland Trailblazers was unbelievable. Overtime!
Kobe showed why he’s the best closer in the NBA.

AP:

Kobe Bryant had 37 points and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame a 10-point deficit late in the fourth quarter to beat Portland 106-101 in overtime Wednesday night, snapping the Trail Blazers’ season-best, six-game winning streak.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 29 points and 14 rebounds for the Blazers, but didn’t hit a shot in the fourth quarter and missed two key free throws in the extra period.

The Lakers hadn’t won back-to-back games in Portland since 2000. The Lakers also improve to 10-2 on the second night of a back-to-back.

While Kobe had 37 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists, he wasn’t the MVP of the game. Ron Artest played his best game of the season. He was 5 of 6 from behind the 3-point line. He finished with 24 points and 6 rebounds. He pulled down an offensive rebound in overtime that gave Kobe another chance to extend the lead.

Box Score: Lakers 106 Trail Blazers 101

Next Game: Friday, February 25th. 7:30 p.m. (vs. Los Angeles Clippers)
