The Lakers won again last night with a second half blitz to take care of the Jazz. They are only one game in the loss column behind the Spurs and seem to be in prime position to take over the best record in the West and the best overall record in the league.
Most interesting thing about last night game was Utah Jazz Center Kyrylo Fesenko trying to take out Kobe Bryant twice.
Here is what Kobe had to say after the game, courtesy the O.C. Register
I asked Kobe Bryant what he initially thought when Bryant’s tender right knee took that hard knee from Kyrylo Fesenko, Utah’s fledgling 7-footer who started the game Friday night.
Bryant’s answer: “Kitty cats can’t hurt me.”
Bryant was asked by another reporter if the situation with Fesenko ignited the Lakers’ run.
Bryant’s answer: “Teddy bears don’t ignite me.”
Another reporter asked about it further, and Bryant cut it off, laughing. After he finished answering other questions, he laughed again and announced: “You guys asked me three questions on Fesenko. You’ve got to be (expletive) me!”
Kobe obviously has something against stuff animals.
Here is the video.
