words // Luis Sanchez
Proving he’s still got it, Kobe Bryant went off for at least 40 points for the second night in a row as the Lakers were able to take care of the Utah Jazz.
Not only did Kobe lead his Los Angeles Lakers in scoring, he also hit the biggest free throws of the game with 0.7 seconds remaining to get the victory. After sitting out the Lakers’ first battle with the Jazz, Andrew Bynum also came through clutch with five blocked shots, including one on a Richard Jefferson shot with 1.9 seconds remaining in overtime to help the Lakers seal the victory.
Other battles going on throughout the league included the Los Angeles Clippers taking on the Miami Heat, who literally folded under pressure for their second overtime loss in as many nights. The Oklahoma City Thunder also continued their great play, holding off the Hornets for a 95-85 victory.
