Kobe seems to be taking this season very personally and doing whatever it takes
Kobe had 13 of his 28 in the third quarter to buoy the Lakers over the Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks 99-82. He looked great at times shooting, spinning, shaking and pattin’ down the defense in front of him. Kevin Durant on the other hand, went hero on the Mavericks with 1.4 seconds left after Vince Carter’s three looked to be the difference for Dallas.
