NBA Obsessed - NBA Basketball News

Lakers and Kobe roll over the Suns

by james on December 25th, 2007

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

If Andrew Bynum keeps it up, hmm, maybe we can win it all

This one is tough to figure out. Maybe you can explain it to me.

If there are any ardent Laker followers, then please leave a comment and explain to me how this group of Lakers can be playing so well.

Phil Jackson must own a lot of mirrors, because it appears he is doing it with mirrors.

Then again, love him or not, Kobe Bryant is special and may just be carrying the Lakers to greater glory. The Lakers are 9 - 3 in December.

The Lakers beat the Suns in the Christmas special NBA game.

The score was Lakers 122 Phoenix 115.

You have heard me expound on the proposed trade of Kobe to Chicago and how Chicago should pull out all the stops to get Kobe. Well, how does it look now with Chicago sinking in the sun and firing Coach Skiles, meanwhile the Lakers are on a roll?

It was rumored that there were two obstacles in the Chicago deal at various points of negotiations. One was Luol Deng of the Bulls and the other was Andrew Bynum of the Lakers. Both teams were ardent about not parting with their young talent.

It appears that Bynum is starting to pay dividends for the Lakers.

Bryant, who complained about a lack of talent around him, has gotten plenty of help recently, especially from the 20-year-old Bynum, who shot 11-of-13 in outplaying Phoenix center Amare Stoudemire.

Bynum left to a roar of approval from the Staples Center crowd of 18,997 and a hand-slap from Bryant with 11.5 seconds to play. source

The victory was a particular pleasure to the Lakers, because the Suns have knocked them out of the first round of the playoffs the last two years in a row. The Lakers need to know they can beat the suns. It is all about confidence.

Kobe NBA records

Kobe is starting to break into the NBA record book.

Bryant, who became the youngest player ever to reach 20,000 career points Sunday in New York, moved past Tom Chambers into 30th place on the career list with his 31st point of this game, which came on a corkscrew jumper that gave the Lakers a 102-95 lead.

    2 names: Bynum and Fisher. Bynum stepping up his game, and Fisher playing good point.

    Thanks, D,
    Fisher is way underrated. He always plays big in big games. He always is able to get that shot off with guys hanging all over him.

    Bynum is unknown to us midwesterners. We have to stay up late to catch Laker games. Can he keep it up?
