Kobe Bryant hit 9-of-24 shots and zero 3-pointers for 21 points, eight rebounds, four assists, four steals, a block and five turnovers in Tuesday's win over the Nets.

Kobe's right forearm is a bit of a concern and he had a heating pad on it up until game time, and it likely contributed to the poor shooting. But Kobe still managed one of the dunks of the night and the Lakers won, despite not having Dwight Howard or Metta World Peace available, and losing Pau Gasol late in the game with a foot injury.
