Kobe Once Again Leads Lakers Soaring Past Nuggets, Round 1, Game 2 (122-107)

Kobe, Kobe, Kobe.  That's all I could think as I was watching the game.  Amazing.  He truly is.

The amazing Kobe Bryant ended the game with an incredible 49 points and 10 assists, the first 40 point 10 assist game in the playoffs since Tracy McGrady had 42 points and 10 assists in 2001.  Kobe led the Los Angeles Lakers to a 2-0 lead, and put the Denver Nuggets on sweep alert.  They are meeting in Denver, Saturday, April 26th, at 5:30 ET

Below are the stats of the Lakers that I have compiled:

Fouls (Tech/Flagrant) 26 (2/0) 25 (1/0)

Overall this was once again a fast-paced game, because that's the way that Denver head coach George Karl likes to play.  I give him credit for attempting to get back in the game, but the Lakers were just too great.  We'll see what happens when the two meet at Denver, which is a fairly good home team.
