A total of 6 games today with a couple of close ones. Kobe hit a jumper with 4.2 seconds to give the Lakers a much needed road victory at Toronto. For the Raptors, Jose Calderon went for 30 – the 2nd game in a row the Lakers have given up big numbers to an opposing point guard (Knicks guard Jeremy Lin dropped 38 on the Lakers Friday night). In the end Calderon and the Raptors came up just short. (LAL 94 TOR 92)
In Boston, the Celtics hosted the Derrick Rose-less Bulls. Rose missed another game due to a sore back. Boston controlled most of the game but Chicago came back in the 4th quarter to make it close. Boston got the win, thanks in large part to Rajon Rondo’s triple double (32 points, 10 rebounds, 15 assists). (CHI 91 BOS 95)
