VIDEO: Lakers @ Kings highlights (11/21/12)

This was the second game of a back-to-back and it was a tough one. The Kings came to play and the Lakers didn’t – well, most of the Lakers didn’t. Kobe went off for 38 points, so the highlights are definitely still worth watching.


Kobe’s 38 points on 11-of-20 shooting were brilliant, but his 7 turnovers take the shine off of his performance a little.

The Lakers were let down big time by Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard tonight, and Kobe Bryant’s Herculean effort wasn’t enough to offset it. 

Gasol scored eight points on 3-10 shooting, and Howard added seven points on 2-4 shooting, despite each playing more than 37 minutes. Neither player seemed to have much energy, perhaps because they had played big minutes the night before.
