The LA Lakers beat the Orlando Magic 104-88. Kobe Bryant had 21 points and 9 assists in 39 minutes. Kobe wanted to pass today and did just that. Lamar Odom had 18 points and 8 rebounds in 40 minutes. Odom has to come up with these numbers consistently. All 5 Laker starters were in double figures. Steve Francis had 28 points and 9 assists in 41 minutes. Stevo had a great game but didn't play good enough defense. Dwight Howard played 2 minutes before going down with a sprained ankle and did not return. Grant Hill had 13 points and 8 boards in 36 minutes. Hill is still getting back and will probably be back to 100% percent in the start of 2006.
