Lakers News and Rumors Recap: Kobe is on Fire, But Can He Stay Hot?

howard nuggetsThe Lakers have 25 games left in this season before the playoffs. Which means L.A. has got to win as many games as they can to get into the 8th seed in the West for the playoffs. The key to tonight’s win is going to be how the Lakers maintain their recent good fortune, which has bred positive energy on the team. Playing off the momentum of the win against Dallas will be crucial to their second game on the road.

Kobe Bryant was named Player of the Week for the Western Conference (LeBron was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week) for the week of February 18th and ending February 24th. Bryant averaged 31.3 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 6 apg during those seven days. His two biggest games were in Portland and Dallas. He went for 40 points, seven rebounds, and four assists in Portland and 38 points, 12 rebounds, and seven assists against Dallas. Kobe helped the Lakers go 3-0 last week.

The Lakers are #9 in the Power Rankings this week. Jerry Buss’s death absolutely motivated the team last week. We all saw Kobe Bryant on fire, but Dwight was also putting up impressive numbers. Currently in the top is the Miami Heat, followed by the Spurs and Thunder.
