Pacers 89, Lakers 101

Uh oh.

The Lakers’ first unit carried the team to an easy enough win last night, with Kwame Brown actually getting and catching passes from his teammates. But, it came at a cost. Kobe suffered a classic basketball injury: went up for a reverse layup in traffic, came down hard on Jeff Foster’s foot, and tweaked his ankle.

I say tweaked because Gary Vitti (the Lakers’ trainer since forever) let Kobe go back out onto the bench, where #24 worked continuously to keep his ankle loose in case that 20 point lead dropped low enough. It didn’t, so now Lakers fans just have to hope that Kobe’s ready to go for the next game.
