Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Tweets Support After Lakers Victory

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

The Lakers had one of the more unusual victories last night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Thanks to injuries and foul issues, the team was down to four eligible players remaining.

Thanks to a rule, the Lakers were allowed to keep Robert Sacre on the floor, as no team is allowed to play with less than five players. But the fact that the Lakers were victorious over the Cavaliers, despite having so few players available, speaks to the heart and resolve of this team.

That was not lost on star player Kobe Bryant, who tweeted his support of the effort after the game:

Bryant made it a point to shout-out Steve Blake who, in his second game back, recorded his first career triple-double. Ryan Kelly added a career high 26 points for the short-handed Lakers who snapped a seven game losing streak with their win in Cleveland.

It is great to see that the team has the support of its veteran players. At a time when the team is losing, and the locker room morale is struggling to stay positive, it is sure to motivate the guys when they see that Bryant is still behind them, supporting everything they go through.

This season has been a trying one for the Lakers. Injuries have decimated the roster, but the team continues to fight through, against all odds. At this point, any encouragement is a positive for the Lakers.

    That wasn’t Steve Blakes first career triple double, i remember him having one with the Clippers against the Lakers a few years back

    • Lefty

      First career triple double with the LAKERS! Read..?

      • Gregory Choa

        Corey didn’t say first career triple-double with the Lakers, he said first career triple-double. St. Pete’s is exactly right, Bad Blake’s first career trip-doub (23pts/11assts/10rebs) came at the Lakers expense, in a Clipper uniform, in the last game of the ’10/’11 regular season, on April 14th, 2010…I remember it well…I’m also pretty sure that was that performance that made enough of an impression on Kupchak to go ahead and sign him that offseason.

        “Bryant made it a point to shout-out Steve Blake who, in his second game back, recorded his first career triple-double” Where does it say it’s with the Lakers? “Read..?”

          I remember when I expected a triple-double every night from Magic and was almost never disappointed. It is hard to realize just how hard that is to do.

    …And now Nick Young out 2 weeks with knee fracture…OMG, I am feeling so sad for my Lakers. Only 1 positive thing to think of is the DRAFT PICK this year.

    • honestly

      now why would u caps lock the pick?? now, david stern is gonna veto the pick and give it to the clippers

      • J.lee

        Sorry, I didn’t think of that.But.. do you think Stern can still text Adams Silver to do that to us?lol.

  • Jay Brodes
