Barring an NBA Finals featuring the two teams, the Los Angeles Lakers only visit Madison Square Garden once, this year. The occasion is a one time chance during the season to see Kobe Bryant and what exploits he’ll have at the Garden. In 2009, it was his 61-point performance; In 2008 it was a near triple double performance of 39 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists; In 2006, he dropped 40 at the Garden. Time and time again, the Lakers visit to the Garden brings about questions of, “What will Kobe do tonight?”
Final Score: Lakers 113, Knicks 96
Current Streak: Loss 2
If a trade is going to happen it better take place soon.
The body language on the floor is disgusting.
Wilson Chandler’s body language is saying “I don’t want to be here”. Raymond Feltons’ name has recently been included in trade talks involving the Nuggets, and he seems to be affected by the rumors as well.
