Ouch. Kobe went nuts against the Mavs on Tuesday night, scoring 62 points in three quarters of work in a 112-90 Lakers blowout.
There's no denying Kobe is greatness on the court. It's only his sorry attitude and off-court problems that prevent him from truly inheriting the Jordan mantle.
Avery got tossed, Dirk and Devin Harris both had a decent offensive game, but no one to could stop Kobe. He sat out the 4th, or he might have gone for 100.
One game certainly does not make a season, and the Mavs will be fine. Stackhouse may actually play for the first time later this week, and there remains much to be positive about. These things happen in an 82-game season.
But it still hurts.
