The Los Angeles Lakers crushed the Dallas Mavericks last night and they avenged the opening night loss they suffered from the Dirk Nowitzki-less team.
The Lakers came out of the gate on fire and it was impressive to see the team respond after its disappointing loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. Kobe Bryant finished the game in Dallas with 19 points despite not attempting a shot in the first quarter.
At the 10:59 mark of the second period, the Lakers held a 13 point lead and Bryant put up his first shot of the game. It was a leaning, one-legged shot, something that Maverick Dirk Nowitzki made famous.
Kobe did not make the shot and the Dallas Mavericks broadcast team was not impressed with Bryant trying to imitate Nowitzki’s shot.
“Don’t do that in here,” he said. “Don’t do that in this building.”
Here’s the video of the shot.
