Sunday’s game between the Lakers and Hornets is supposed to be a playoff preview. If the first half is any indication, that playoff series would be a short one. The Lakers went into the locker room at halftime with a 57-41 lead.
The Lakers are shooting 46% compared to the Hornets 42% and lead the rebounding battle 28-26. The Hornets will have to figure out how to shut down Kobe if they want any chance of making this one a game. Good luck with that.
