So felonius has doubled Kobe in the first three games of our 2nd round ODL playoff series. Kobe hit a buzzer beater in game 2 to steal home court and he just went for 51 in game 3 in a 141-130 win.
It will be interesting to see if felonius comes back with the double in game 4 because while it may be slowing down Kobe a little it has made Jerry Lucas a super star.
Kobe's stats through three games: 45.7ppg, 51 for 103 from the field for 49.5%; 10 for 21 from three for 47.6% and a total efg of 54.4%.
But Lucas just had a 31-11-11 line and is 30 for 46 in the series and 2 for 3 from long range for an efg of 67.4% and 22.7ppg, more than 5 up from his reg season and an efg 9.5% higher.
I may not win this series, but this Kobe ride has been fun and the one thing I'm pretty sure of is that Kobe will NEVER fall to the 4th round again in this league as long as the cap stays at $47mill.
