Kobe was once again Superman

Lakers Beat Knicks AGAIN....

For the 9th straight time the LA Lakers topped the New York Knicks and this one was across the country in LALA Land. Kobe Bryant scored 28 points to push the Lakers to their second consecutive win after starting 0-2 and hearing the talk around shows, radio, newspapers, and fans. It seems like yearly he and the Lakers have to deal with talk of aging pieces and the possibility of a rival surpassing them only to post a solid top 1-2 record in the western conference.

Pau Gasol had 16 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists to offset Knicks star Amare Stoudemire.  Gasol was able to match his production of 15 points without putting up the awful 4-17 shooting night that Amare did either. The other part of the big 2 for New York, Carmelo Anthony, put in a Knicks high of 28. This was Anthony's first match-up with the Lakers and Kobe since being traded to the Knicks at the end of last year from the Nuggets.
