Lakers reach .500 as Kobe Bryant has 18th career triple-double


Lakers beat up on the Rockets 119-108 to win their fifth game of the season and bring their record to 5-5. Rocking their Sunday home whites- ::Pause:: the Lakers are the only team that doesn’t rock white home jerseys. Only on Sundays. See, Jill loves to teach and inform:: Let’s look at the highlights from this win:

  • All five starters were in double digits.
  • Pau got his 15,000th career point with Kobe on the assist.


  • Kobe got his 18th career triple-double with 22 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists. Now 18 career triple-doubles in a 17 year career seems kind of low but Mamba had an answer for that.

“I’m a scorer, not a triple-double player.” –Kobe Bryant

  • Dwight Howard is rounding into playing shape. Dwight had 28 and 13 to go along with two nice dunks tonight. But how are we feeling about DH12 adopting the head band. He used to wear it in high school but wasn’t allowed to rock one with the Magic… The Heat is another team that has a no headband policy. Lebron being the lone exception. I think everyone feels sorry for his hairline so there’s that…

  • What type of stat line did James Harden have? The league’s second leading scorer- Kobe Bryant is first- 20 points and 7 assists.

And Mike D’Antoni hasn’t coached a game yet…
