Brian Cook just
keeps on helping this new edition of the Lakers make a playoff
march. As evidence, check out last night's big road contest versus
the Timberwolves at Minnesota. Before the game, most NBA pundits
would've chalked it up as yet another Laker road loss. But Cook and
his mates had other ideas, as they hung a big "L" on the T-wolves.
Cook tallied eight points, including
two huge 3-pointers, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one
huge blocked shot. Cook made his 19 minutes of action pay off and
helped lead the big fourth-quarter comeback and rally, taking the
Lakers to a huge victory away from home. In fact, L.A. went on a 26-7
run that actually put the game away.
It was a huge surprise, especially when
you consider that the Lakers shot only 19 percent from the field in
the first quarter. ["L.A.
Lakers 105, Minnesota 96; Lakers Start Slow, Finish Strong In
Next up for Cook and the Lakers is a
road game at Denver on Wednesday night.
