The Lakers have won 18 of their last 22 games. The Raptors don’t have Chris Bosh. It’s not hard to guess who would come away with this win.
Kobe Bryant played his normal role of fourth quarter assassin by scoring 10 points in the last 8 1/2 minutes to lead the Lakers to a 117-108 win at home against the Raptors.
With this win the Lakers have scratched their way back to the top of the Western conference. Just like every week in the Western conference though they probably won’t be in the lead in a few days. They have a very tough four game road trip coming up where they face the Hornets, the Rockets, the Mavs and the Jazz. We will learn a lot about this Laker team and if they can win at least 2 of 4 they should consider it successful.
Trail Blazers 103 – Timberwolves 96
Two years ago Minnesota drafted Brandon Roy but traded him to Portland for Randy Foye. Oops. Now Foye may still turn out to be a good player if he can get past all the injuries he’s suffered in the early part of his career and in college but Roy is becoming a star in this league.
The Wolves could’ve definitely used Roy’s cool under pressure attitude in last nights game. The Trail Blazers were happy to have him. He played his biggest in a 12-2 fourth quarter run that gave the Blazers the 103-96 win over the Wolves. He continued to get to the basket to either score easy buckets, get free throws or get open shots on the perimeter for his team.
The Blazers played so good down the stretch it knocked Al Jefferson right out of his shorts, literally.
