Kobe – Howard clicking in LA!

The newly defined partnership of Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard is clicking on all cylinders in LA.  The Lakers defeated the Chicago Bulls today, 90 – 81.  They are now in sole position of the 8th spot (remember we were given a guarantee they would make the playoffs by Kobe, Dwight and Nash!) and trail Houston in the 7th spot by 1/2 a game.  Kobe scored 19 points with 9 assists and 7 rebounds, Howard had 16 points and 21 rebounds, while Nash added 16 points.  World Peace threw in 12 points and Meeks added 11 off the bench.  Star power was abundant in the Staples Center with Jack in attendance (of course), Andy Garcia, Emily Rossum (Shameless) and Redfoo, lead singer for LMFAO and boyfriend of Victoria Azarenka.  He must have driven down from Indian Well, Ca where Azarenka is in action at the Paribas Open to take in a bit of basketball.  The Lakers are on a roll, let’s see if they can keep it up!

Earlier, the OKC Thunder beat Boston, 91 – 70 with Kevin Durant having an “average” scoring performance of 23 points.

In college basketball, 2 Indiana holds off 7 Michigan, 72 – 71 to claim outright Big Ten regular season championship.  Heck of a college basketball game.

Really a lot going on today folks, hard to keep up with it all!  Golf and tennis report up next!
