Welcome back to Nick Young who with Kobe helped lead the Lakers to a 114-109 win over the Hawks!
Lakers beat Hawks 114-109. First road win.
Kobe smiling on the court, sticking around to talk to Dominique Wilkins, a Hawks TV analyst.
Lakers get their 2nd win of the year as they survive a late rally from the Hawks, 114 - 109.
Final score 114-109 - Lakers go to Rockets tomorrow - I do not have Lakers winning in Houston - Hawks are off til Friday then Pistons
Lakers barely hold on for 114-109 win over Hawks. Kobe nearly missed close out on Antic, whose 3 hit off the rim
Great play drawn up by the Hawks to get the clean look, but the Lakers dodge the bullet. BK
NBD Laker fans. The Hawks only have the best 3-point shooter in the league.
Ronnie Price splits a pair - Lakers up 3 with 7.7 - Hawks ball (I'd foul here before the shot - if possible)
Ronnie Price missed the 1st FT … hit the 2nd with 7.7 seconds left. Hawks time out, down 112-109. Do LAL foul? We'll see what Scott does.
Ronnie Price misses the front end of two FTs. Makes second. Hawks will get the ball back with a chance to tie.
Hold the phone. Korver for 3, Hawks down two with 7.7 seconds left...
Korver hits both FT's after the clear path PF. Hawks don't covert extra possession. LAL up 105-102, 1:26 left. Horford missed a 3.
Hawks have the ball, trailing by three. Would be so like the Lakers to lose in their best game of the season.
Kobe checks in and deafening “Ko-be” chants rain down from the Atlanta Hawks crowd. Kinda weird for a home game.
Carlos Boozer beat the entire Hawks team down the court and now, the Lakers forced a shot clock violation. What.
Hawks announcers are one or two "Swaggy P" mentions from my mom asking me what Swaggy P is and me having to explain it to her.
Lakers survived the 3rd with an 8-point lead - Hawks have certainly made a game of it.
Lakers 91, Hawks 83 to start the 4th quarter. Boozer with 20 points (10/13), Kobe with 19 (6/10), Lin with 15 (6/6) and Hill with 12 (6/13).
Top-five pick protection watch: the Lakers are leading the Hawks 91-83 after 3 in Atlanta.
A 13-0 Hawks run to start the 3rd Q turned the game around, though dunks from Johnson and Hill stopped the bleeding. LAL up 71-65.
That impressive Lakers lead, which reached 17, is now just two as Hawks score first 13 of the third.
Hawks open second half on 13-0 run, cut LAL lead to 2.
LAL assts. at the half noted how Young's presence in the 1st half made Hawks have to pay attention to the weak side, helping floor spacing.
Just like that, the Hawks come out on an 8-0 run and take away LAL's momentum from the 1st half. Lead cut to 7 at 67-60.
