The Lakers suffered just their 3rd loss since the All-Star break on Wednesday against the injury-riddled Atlanta Hawks, 92-96.
But the entire Lakerdom is still seething about a dangerous play that occurred with 5 seconds left in the 4th quarter as Kobe Bryant, being defended by Dahntay Jones, drove to the right baseline and took a fadeaway shot to try to tie the game at 94. Bryant landed on the back of Jones' right heel and violently twisting his left ankle, as a result. The shot hit the front-end of the rim, and the Lakers failed to capture their 5th-straight win.
That play was replayed and dissected by the media numerous times and became the hottest topic of the night via Twitter, where both Bryant and Jones even addressed what they believe is intentional or not.no comments
