2010 Kings versus Lakers

With Kevin taking Jack to his season ending flag football party, Sharon and I had dinner downtown at Mulvaney's B&L. While the meal was solid, Sharon was not overly impressed.

Afterwards, we headed to the Sacramento Kings versus Los Angeles Lakers NBA basketball game. Trailing by 20 points in the third quarter, the Kings got within 6 points in the fourth quarter. The Lakers promptly pulled away and won by the score of 112 to 100.

When they have their core group on the floor [Kobe, Gasol, Artest, Odom and Fisher], the Lakers look very good. They play together extremely well. Without even looking like he was working hard, Kobe had a triple double. He finished with 30 points on 9 for 22 from the field, 3 for 6 from three point range and 9 for 10 from the free throw line. Kobe added 10 rebounds and 12 assists.

It has been a number of years since I have been to a Kings and Lakers game at Arco Arena. I was dumbfounded at the number of Lakers fans. The cheers were literally louder for the Lakers during most of the game than for the Kings.
