ate to be the bearer of bad news, the NBA and the LA Lakers suffered one of the most devastating losses last night! Kobe Bryant will miss the Playoffs with a (probable) torn Achilles injury in his left ankle; waiting for MRI results today! Kobe, 34, had been dealing with obvious pain for the entire second half after falling hard twice, and sufficed 34 points before the injury! He heard it pop (quote above) as he tried to shake Harrison Barnes on the dribble and limped off the court with three minutes to go in regulation! The Lakers held on to a sensational win over the Golden State Warriors 118-116, and now must look to the future without the point guard who bailed them out on many occasions in the past! Dwight Howard stepped up with 28 points and seven boards, Pau Gasol turned in a triple-double with 26 points, 11 boards and 10 assists, and Steve Blake added 14 points! Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry was unstoppable and finished with a game-high 47 points! It is very sad indeed for Kobe fans and even worldwide NBA fans alike! The Lakers improved to (43-37), and actually gained ground on the Golden State Warriors (45-35)! The Lakers are still in the eight spot in the Western Conference, one game over the Utah Jazz (42-38)! Check out Kobe injury and full highlights from the game on video below!
