Kobe Bryant might be changing the way he plays, but he definitely isn't changing the way he speaks. The Lakers toppled the Oklahoma City Thunder 105-96 on Friday behind an impressively efficient all-around effort from Bryant, who finished with 21 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds on 8-of-12 shooting. It's the second-consecutive game Bryant has dropped 14 dimes, which one off his career high.
Let's not forget that this still Kobe Bryant though, even if it isn't the hero-ball chucker he's been at times this season. Kobe, how does it feel to beat the Thunder, who entered the game with the league's top winning percentage?
