Tough loss by the Lakers. Just when they were starting to get things going too. Why must they have to pick themselves up so often?
I loved how Kobe abandoned his self-described "neo-mode" and went back to Kobe, the Black Mamba in the fourth as their lead slipped away. After his teammates dared to miss a few shots, actually I don't think it was even a few shots, I remember Artest missing a wide open three in the fourth and I can't remember anything else, Kobe was like, "I'm going to have to win this all by myself." He basically stopped passing, started pounding the ball, refused to give it to Gasol after a number of screens and that was that.
Beasley looked great.
