The New Jersey Nets beat the LA Lakers 102-96 in overtime. Kobe was hot but the Lakers couldn't stop the Nets in crunch time. Jason Kidd had 35 points, 12 assists and 8 rebounds in 46 minutes. Kidd was 2 rebounds short of a triple double. Nenad Krstic added 20 points and 13 rebounds in 41 minutes. If Krstic can keep up 20 and 10 the Nets would win more games. Kobe Bryant for the Lakers evaporated the defense with 46 points and shot 14-36 from the field. Kobe did do well but 36 shots that's to much. Plus a third of them threes that he only shot 30% on that's terrible. Lamar Odom had only 8 points and 10 rebounds in 47 minutes. Kobe has to let Odom get up more than just 11 shots or else Odom won't play to his potential. Brian Cook had the shot that sent the game into overtime and 14 points and 7 rebounds in 34 minutes. I said it once and again Kwame who is out now will not put the numbers Cook will so do the smart thing and permedently start him!
