Steve Nash played for the first time since Halloween and the Lakers actually beat a team with a winning record. Nash scored 12 points and handed out 9 assists, playing 41 minutes through the end of the overtime game. Without the Phoenix training staff, I’m sure Nash will continue to play 41 minutes a game no problem. Speaking of the number 41, that’s how many shots Kobe Bryant took last night on his way to scoring 34 points. The Lakers are now 1-0 this season when Kobe Bryant shoots the ball 41 times so… more shots for Kobe! Dwight Howard scored 11 points and pulled down 6 rebounds before fouling out. Basically, this is the perfect blueprint for winning every Los Angeles fan imagined in the offseason.
The Texas Rangers appear poised to hang on to Yu Darvish.
With Clayton Kershaw out, the Dodgers need to add another ace.
It was bound to happen.
