Lakers fall to the Hawks in the ATL

The LA Lakers fell to the Atlanta Hawks in a close one tonight, 96 – 92.  Great effort and comeback by the Hawks.  Very tough loss for the Lakers who are trying to hold onto the precarious “8th” playoff spot.  Kobe Bryant exploded in the third period and finished with 31 points.  He did come down awkwardly and roll his ankle in the closing seconds when he attempted a two point shot that would have tied the game and missed.  Interesting to note was all the Lakers fan support in the crowd in Atlanta.

Tennis updates from all of today’s and tonight’s action in Indian Wells, CA coming tomorrow!  Hint…Federer wins but goes three tough sets against countryman Wawrinka.  Until later…
