Another road game, another loss for the Lakers. They led early Monday night in Philly, but after a hot start from Kobe Bryant (good enough to pass Shaquille O'Neal for fifth on the all-time scoring list before the half was up), the Lakers slowed down in the second half while Philadelphia warmed up.
There was much to discuss on tonight's episode of Lakers Late Night, and discuss much we did. Including...
Bryant passing Shaq on the all-time scoring list.
Bryant's game against Philly. Red hot to start, ice cold to finish. What was the impact not just of the final numbers but how Kobe got there?
The Lakers have myriad problems, but their Big Three aren't high on the list.
Looking ahead to the Boston game Thursday evening.
All that, plus some interesting shootaround comments from Bryant.
