The Lake Show overcame Phil Jackson's old team the Chicago Bulls last night with a 98-91 win. In what could be one of Jackson's last games against his old firm he coached his team to a 17-2 charge against the Bulls in the fourth. Chi-town's finest native Shannon Brown again made his case for most improved player (seriously how many stars do LA need?) with 21 points and 5 threes. Shannon showcased his range en route to matching his season high, including one beautiful, shining, rainbow three which caught rain on it. A jumper so soft and perfect, the instant replay didn't need any slow motion on it. Kobe also again had 20, while Lamar Odom had an All-Star 21 and 8. Chicago's Derrick Rose was a thorn in the Lakers side as he drove to the hoop endlessly en route to a stellar 30 points. Still it was the Lakers who bloomed late on planting a victory.
