The LA Lakers beat the Seattle Sonics 106-93. The Lakers pulled off a victory on the end of a hard back to back after playing and losing to the Spurs Thursday. The Sonics played a great first half but then the Lakers pulled a 24 points swing. Kobe Bryant had 43 points on 17-38 shooting in 46 minutes. Kobe I know you need to score but 38 shots? 20 in the first half and two off of the same amount in the second. Kobe shot 10 less shots than the rest of the Lakers did. Kwame Brown got 12 points and 13 boards in 32 minutes. Brown played great post defense and did some things that won't show up on the stat sheet. Lamar Odom got 12 points and 10 boards in 38 minutes. Odom still wasn't consistent he should demand the ball more and shot it. Ray Allen got 29 points and 8 boards in 43 minutes. Allen played tough defense and wanted to show Kobe he's better all around. Chris Wilcox got 16 points and 7 boards in 30 minutes. The sonics like Wilcox and I think he's a great fit for the Sonics run and gun offense.
