Brown seems to be really coming into his own, which is evident with how quickly he falls into the groove of working with his new team. Operating closely with team leader in points and assist Kobe Bryant (20 points, 2 rebounds, 5 assist and 4 turnovers), Brown was able to set the mood for this game. Having found more confidence with L.A., Shannon is starting to push his game to new limits. He hit 5 3-pointers in this game, drove to the basket with determination, gave solid jumpers and shot when it felt right. Brown was good for 21 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assist, while Lamar Odom had 21 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assist. All in all, L.A. is flowing more smoothly as a team. “The more games we have like this, the more we understand how to play off each other,” is the way Kobe put it. Standing tall on top of the Pacific division with a 13-2 record, the Lakers just might make it to the championship again this year. Basketball scores.
Derrick Rose [30 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assist] and the Bulls gave it their best shot, but that was not enough to beat the inspired Lakers.
