The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Orlando Magic in overtime last night 101-96. The Lakers lead the best of seven series 2-0 with the series shifting to Orlando for the next three games. The Lakers got a balanced effort with Kobe Bryant scoring 29 points, Paul Gasol scoring 24, and Lamar Odom pitching in 19 off the bench.
The Magic executed the Stan Van Gundy designed offense very well last night; unfortunately they just couldn’t make shots. The Orlando Magic guards shot just 6-26 from the field and in the end it was just too much for the frontcourt to overcome. Courtney Lee missed an open layup causing the game to go to overtime. Dwight Howard scored 17 points but his lack of offensive moves caused him to turn the ball over seven times.
As stated here at Egyptsaidso.com before, the Lakers are winning in 5 and the series will not go back to Los Angeles, but did anyone else notice that Kobe Bryant’s wife was the ONLY wife in the tunnel right after the game? Kobe has taken a ton of heat for his wife & I think we can all see why. If you can’t even go to work without your wife being right under you then people are going to talk.
