Player of the night
G Kobe Bryant - Lakers
49 points, 11 rebounds, 2 assists
Perhaps Andrew Bynum's injury was the best thing to ever happen to Kobe fantasy owners (that is, of course, unless you also own Bynum). Kobe has been a tear recently and yesterday was no exception. What, did you really think Kobe was going to leave his A-game at home when he was going against Shaq?
Kobe took 38 shots last night, which I believe is the highest number of shots hoisted up by one player in a game this year. When one of your players takes that many shots, you have to worry about field goal percentage, but by finishing 18-for-38 (47.4 percent), Kobe hit his season average....on the dot! Crazy. Only Kobe could miss 20 shots and still hit his average. Ha!
