Kobe Bryant took us back to his old no. 8 days with his dunk on Gerald Wallace and Kris Humphries in the fourth quarter, en route to the Lakers' (don't look now) third win in a row. Kobe led the Lakers to a 92-83 over the Nets despite missing Dwight Howard (injury) and Metta World Peace (suspension).
It wasn't all good for the Lakers, though. Pau Gasol went down after feeling a "pop" in his foot. He's getting an MRI in Boston today, but the early diagnosis was a strained plantar fascia.
