You can't win 'em all. Apparently.
Lakers lose a competitive game in Denver, 118-112, marking their first loss of the '10-'11 season. Some topics of tonight's show (aside from programming notes about leaving the HD camera at home...):
A high volume, low efficiency night for Kobe Bryant, who finished with 34 points on 32 FGA's. Was he dominating the ball more than he should, or were guys not making themselves available?
29 three-pointers? Were they getting paid by the triple?
In a game of runs, Phil Jackson sat on some timeouts. Why?
Other topics: Pau Gasol's tough night inside, a moderate improvement on the boards as a team, and a look ahead to Phoenix on Sunday.
Still learning how to find a flattering thumbnail. You think this one is awkward? You should see what it looked like.
