Kobe Bryant might have evened 'The Score' with Hakeem Oloujawon and then passed him as eight on the NBA's all time scoring list but it was Sacramento that had the highest numbers beating the Lake Show, 100-95. In a surprise win in this Californian clash at STAPLES Sacto' looked like their old selves shocking the Lakers. The Kings dethroned the defending champions home-win streak with a royal flush. DeMarcus Cousins had 27 points and 10 rebounds and Omri Casspi's 20 points put the Lakers in the toilet. Kobe had an impressive 38 points. Still even with 20 more then he needed to pass 'The Dream', (he had his 18, with 21 in the first) it wasn't enough to prevent this nightmare. Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol struggled with 4 and 9 points respectively, which with all due respect even added together subtracts from these guys regular form this season. This is the first time since 2008 that the Kings have beat the Lakers landing a rock on their throne. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
