Lakers come up short in bid for six in a row…

The Lakers were going for six in a row, looking like a team reborn after the return of Steve Nash.  Tonight, they fell short, losing to Denver on the road, 126 – 114.  Dwight Howard was ejected after being called for a flagrant two foul, first called a flagrant one and then reviewed and changed, and that did not help the Lakers in their quest to win on the road.  Kobe finished with 40 points.  Ten consecutive games for Kobe with 30 points or more.  Still, not a good loss for the Lakers.  Offensively they are operating on all cylinders; defensively, they continue to struggle at critical points and they could not overcome the loss of Dwight Howard in tonight’s game.
