A Los Angeles Lakers trip to San Antonio wouldn't be the same without Kobe Bryant competing with the ageless rotation of the Spurs. And even though the Lakers have been atrocious all season and the Spurs embarrassed Dallas last night, the game is surprisingly competitive.
A good portion of the third quarter was all Kobe as he made three consecutive 3-point shots. That's the Kobe Bryant we all remember. The Spurs remember this uber-competitive Bryant as well. It reminds them of the playoffs a few years back.
