What a month

The Lakers finished out the month of January with a 130-97 win over the New York Knicks. The month of Kobe ended with a 40 point effort, which was below his 43.4 per game average for the entire month. He did most of his damage from the line as he went 23 of 26 while only going 7 of 17 from the field. It was the typical performance expected of Kobe of late so there's nothing much else to say since he's been that ridiculous this month. The talk of the game would be the play of Andrew Bynum. Bynum had the game of his career so far as he got to play quite a bit due to the blowout. He played 12 minutes and had 16 points on 7 of 7 shooting from the floor. I was unable to watch the game but from what I've heard, he dominated Eddy Curry and embarassed the Knicks which was great to hear. After seeing his move against Shaq and hearing yesterday's reviews I'm very excited to see Bynum as he develops and I think he can be the force that the Laker front office believed he could be when they drafted him. We'll see how tonight turns out in the second night of a back to back on the road trip as we still have 5 games left on this trip along with two more back to back's as well.
