Kobe Bryant crossing the 30,000 career points mark was obviously the biggest story coming out of last night’s game. That being said, the fact that the Lakers were actually able to capture a 103-87 road victory over the Hornets shouldn’t go unnoticed either.
As sad as it is to admit, Los Angeles needs to count its blessings for each and every win right now.
Bryant ultimately led the way for his squad with 29 points on 10-of-17 shooting. Dwight Howard and Antawn Jamison pitched in 18 points and 15 points, respectively. Howard, for those keeping score, once again converted only 50 percent of his free throws.
Meanwhile, on the other side of things, Ryan Anderson led all scorers with 31 points (and nine rebounds). Robin Lopez, the guy who Shaquille O’Neal believes is better than Dwight, had 15 points and four rebounds.
