Lakers vs Dallas ***SPOILER***

just went to watch lakers vs dallas at the staples centre!

couldnt have seen a better game, went into overtime after a huge three from dirk with 2secs left in regulation.

kobe also hit 52pts with a blinder of a game!

all 19,000 people in the building stood out of their seat for the whole 5min OT period. the atmosphere was electric, never seen anything like it.

got to meet and have a photo with NBA legend mark jackson and a few celebs too.

I can't believe you were at this game! You got to see Kobe go for 30 in the 4th and overtime! Meanwhile, my friend has to sit through an entire Knicks game tomorrow haha.

The MVP chant seems to come out every time he is at the line, no matter how good or bad he is playing.

they did it all night a few days ago when they played miami too.

eastern lowland gorilla, with emphasis on "sounds like" since you didn't actually see the game and would have no idea what percentage of the fouls drawn by Kobe were legitimate, questionable or ludicrous. Jack ass

Im just saying 27 is an awful lot, against a conference rival at home. And david stern does hate Dallas

27 foulshots is because the Mavs shadowed on the side pick and rolls. That means that kobeĀ“s defender forces him away from the pick and roll and towards the baseline where the big (guarding the screener) is waiting. That allowed Kobe to get a full head of steam and go one on one against Dirk or Dampier or split the late double and get in the lane. It is called "the Avery Johnson how to get f*cked in the finals by Dwayne Wade defence".

but look towards to negative side...
