RT @LakersReporter: Kobe, key throughout the game, made all 5 of his shots in the 4th Q to finish w/38 points, 12 rebs & 7 asts in LAL's 5th straight W at DAL.
RT @LakersReporter: LAL has run its O through Howard here, but the missed FT's hurt. DAL capitalized on his moving screen w/a corner 3. 7-1 run has 'em up 2.
RT @LakersReporter: LAL was in control, but the tides turn a bit as Carter draws Howard's 3rd PF at the 5:10 mark. He'll likely sit the rest of the half.
RT @LakersReporter: LAL's bench sprang up in a heartbeat when Kobe crossed up O.J. Mayo, causing a spill, before rising to sink the open J. LAL up 24-23.
RT @LakersReporter: Since Howard went out, LAL's rim protection has of course suffered; Marion converted back-to-back layups to put DAL up 15-12.
RT @LakersReporter: Nash dropped a slick reverse layup, full of English, the 2nd LAL FG as Howard opened the game with a dunk. Mavs struggle w/rim protection.
RT @LakersReporter: D'Antoni liked the fight of his players late, but noted LAL's intensity on D needs to be there for 48 min. tonight. Wasn't there at times.
RT @LakersReporter: Refs review Batum's corner FG, rule it a 2, so LAL up 2 w/ball, 10.7 left. Kobe's last 40-point game was Dec. 26 at DEN.
RT @LakersReporter: A fantastic individual defensive play from MWP has the crowd on its feet after he converted an and-1 on the other end to put LAL up 100-99.
RT @LakersReporter: LAL lack energy out of halftime after that Kobe and-1, allowing a quick 7-0 POR run to find themselves down 62-56 2 min. into the 3rd.
RT @LakersReporter: Strange half for LAL, who worked & moved the ball well, but missed a lot of open shots (Nash 1 for 6, MWP 1 for 5, Clark 3 for 7).
RT @LakersReporter: Nash was very pleased with & complimentary of Howard. He sees that type of effort from Dwight as the key for LAL moving forward.
