Kobe Bryant ended his career perfectly. 60 points on a vintage performance by the man who scored 81 points just more than 10 years ago. The Lakers beat the Jazz, 101-96 at Staples Center on Wednesday night.
The Golden State Warriors earned a record-breaking 45th straight home win Monday night. That historic streak will be put to the test when the Utah Jazz visit Oracle Arena. Golden State currently leads the season series 2-0.
With the exception of the one that got away against the Golden State Warriors, the Atlanta Hawks had a very successful four game road trip. After defeating the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers, the Hawks added on another win over the Utah Jazz on the road at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.
