Look, Kobe Bryant knows that both he and his Lakers haven’t done well historically when playing the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City. I think that’s why he got in a little altercation at the end of Game Two. He was trying to get himself into that bunker mentality for Game Three on the road. You know, that Tupac “Me Against the World” ish. Kobe has also played much better at Utah during the playoffs recently. I believe he had 34 in his last playoff game at EnergySolutions Arena. I look for KB24 to top that tonight.
Kobe knows his scoring will be needed tonight. So, don’t say I didn’t warn you. A Black Mamba strike is coming. Trust me. Ronnie Brewer better have an anti-venom anecdote prepped. His ass is about to get bitten.
