No Kobe, no victory for Lakers

The LA Lakers playing without the services of star Kobe Bryant fell to the Sacramento Kings on the road last night, 99 – 76.  Not a good performance by the Lakers who only trailed at the half, 47 – 44.  The Kings ran away with the game in the second half and the Lakers need Kobe back to continue their run to make the playoffs.  Steve Nash led the Lakers with 19 points.

In Boston, LeBron James scored 37 points, one being a monster dunk, and the other being the go ahead shot with 10 seconds remaining to lead Miami over the Celtics (playing without Kevin Garnett), 105 – 103.  This extends the Heat’s winning streak to 23 games.  The longest winning streak in NBA history is held by the 1971 -72 LA Lakers (of course!) at 33.

OK, got to get to it and fill out my NCAA Bracket.  Will hopefully be able to give you guys my pick for the Final Four, semifinals and eventual tournament champion tomorrow!  Stay tuned…
