Hornets defend wrong basket, Kobe gets easy dunk

Usually when trying to not lose, you defend your own basket and not your opponent's.

Now I'm not a big-time basketball expert who wears a spiffy lab coat and smokes a pipe as he reads box scores every morning, but I think if you are the Hornets here, you defend the other basket.

You know, their basket.

Instead, the Lakers caught New Orleans with their pants down and Kobe got to race ahead of everyone for a wicked rad slam dunk.

Ultimately, the Hornets would fumble away a 20+ point lead and score nine points in the final quarter to the Lakers' 33. And that's how you lose a basketball game.
