Kobe vs. Battier - Can Shane do it again?

aamir, battier-kobe.jpg

On March 16, 2008 last year, the surging Lakers came into Houston with anticipation to break the Rockets amazing winning streak which had reached 21. Not wanting to be a part of their historic run, Kobe and the Lake Show were hoping to cool down the Rockets.

This article isn't about the game. It's not about the win streak. It's about Shane Battier vs. Kobe Bryant.

In that game last year, Shane Battier put on such an incredible display of defense on Kobe Bryant, that even an avid fan of Kobe myself had to give it up to the dude. Ok, ok some people might get on my case for saying this, but Shane practically shut him down that night.

Bryant played 47 minutes that game, shot 11-33, only went to the free throw line four times, and simply just couldn't get it going the whole game. He ended up with 24 points, respectably, but it was the hardest fought 24 points I had ever seen the Mamba go out and get.

Battier played 46 minutes, and was guarding Kobe majority of the night. There was a point in the third quarter when the Lakers did go on a run, but every time the Lakers did get close, Battier found a way to stop Kobe.

The Rockets ended the night with their streak at 22 that night, with a 104-92 victory; but for a week straight, all anybody talked about was Battier's footwork and level of energy the whole night as he chased Kobe around the whole night. And of course, everybody talked about Battier's hand covering Kobe's eyes the whole night.

Whether that affected his jumpshot or not, Bryant had a bad game.

You know he remembers that night. And with Ron Artest and Tracy McGrady most likely not playing tonight, you know he can't wait for Battier to step up and guard him.

It may not be a big game for many, but for Kobe, his eyes are wide open, because he sees the challenge that is Shane Battier tonight.

Can Battier do it again?

I'm rockin' that purp and gold, so you know my answer.
