Cook’s line saw him scoring his first points as
a professional with 2 points, 2 fouls, 1 steal and a couple of
missed shots…one of them a 3-pointer. Cook entered the game for Shaq
at the 4:33 mark of the fourth quarter and promptly buried the first
shot he ever took as a pro! [http://www.nba.com/playerfile/brian_cook/index.html?nav=page]
Next up for Cook and the Lakers is a Fri
excursion to Seattle. Stay tuned to the LDN for future Cook updates.
NFL Play-off pairings set
In AFC action, the Tenn-Balt winner will travel
to KC while the Den-Ind victor goes to NE and gets a crack at the
Patriots. In the NFC, the Panthers host the Car-Dal game with the
winner getting the Eagles in Philly. Mike Holmgren returns to the
frozen tundra in the Sea-GB with the survivor meeting the Rams in
St. Louie. This could be a year that a wild card emerges again.
