Well that was a bittersweet win. One of our better defensive efforts of the season.
Wait, how was it bitter sweet? The team played a great game without Kobe. Is it just because Kobe is down and out?
My biggest complaint with this team this year has been the effort level. I've just hated watching other teams play much, much harder than us, especially on the defensive end. Just seemed like everyone went "oh s**t, Kobe's out" last night, and stepped up the intensity by several degrees. That effort level + Kobe could have made a lot of noise in the playoffs.
