Bryant scored a season high 41 pts but gained another loss
The LA Lakers lost against Miami after Kobe missed a game-tying shot Friday night. Kobe and the gang for the second night in a row did the same thing when Sasha Vujacic missed a three-point shot in the dying seconds of the game.
“Those are the shots that I live for,” Vujacic said. “When I saw it come out, I was just shocked. It is just painful.”
Kobe Bryant did a magnificent job though. He scored a season high 41 points, converted all his free throws, added 8 boards, 3 assists, 2 treys with just 1 turnover.
Howard who scored 18 points and 12 boards made his two free throws after Vujacic’s miss, giving Orlando a 3 point lead with 3.5 seconds left. Kobe’s long three-point attempt just hit the rim. Magic won 106-103.
The Lakers is now 21-5 while the Magic improved with 21-6.
