Bryant shakes off groin injury with 40-point outburst


By Bryan Chu, for NBA.com
Posted Wednesday November 18, 2009 2:45AM

LOS ANGELES (NBA.com exclusive) -- After shooting an airball and being stripped twice in his first three possessions, Kobe Bryant appeared to be in for a long night.

Bryant missed his first four shots, and it appeared his lingering groin strain was the culprit.

Questions about the injury were put to rest for now, however, as Bryant shook off the sluggish start, lifting the Lakers to a 106-93 victory over the Pistons on Tuesday night at the Staples Center.

"I wanted to come out and have a good game and have people stop asking about it," said Bryant, who added later, "I felt good. My groin wasn't really hindering me. I was able to bounce, move around like I normally do."

Bryant finished with a game-high 40 points on 17-for-29 shooting. The NBA's leading scorer also recorded his 100th 40-point game, which trails only Wilt Chamberlain (271) and Michael Jordan (173).

"True honor," said Bryant. "It's just a good feeling."

More importantly, the win kept the Lakers (8-3) from dropping three straight, which they haven't done since Pau Gasol joined the Lakers in February 2007.

"They were embarrassed with the losses," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said.

More good news came pregame when Jackson appeared to target Thursday's game against the Bulls as Gasol's possible return to action since injuring his hamstring on Oct. 10.

"He's hoping that he can play on Thursday," Jackson said. "I asked him if he could play tonight actually and he said he didn't feel ready. We're still waiting for him to totally feel comfortable."

The Pistons (5-6), who began a four-game West Coast trip, were led by reserve guard Will Bynum's 24 points on 9-for-12 shooting. Ben Gordon chipped in 18.

Despite jumping out to an early seven-point lead, Detroit dug itself a hole after being outscored 34-20 in the second quarter. The Pistons were down 57-42 at half in large part because of Bryant, who scored 21 points early.

The Pistons needed big games from Charlie Villanueva and Rodney Stuckey, but neither could get going. Villanueva had two points and Rodney Stuckey managed 11. In the first half, the duo combined for 3-for-14 shooting and finished 4-for-18.

Unlike the back-to-back losses where they struggled in the third quarter, the Lakers ran off a 20-4 run to secure a 81-53 lead. During one stretch, Bryant converted 9-for-11 from the floor.

It's no secret the Lakers struggle against small, quick guards. But against the Pistons' backcourt, the Lakers were able to do a solid job containing and preventing dribble penetration. Both teams shot 47.2 percent, but the difference was a 44-32 advantage on the boards.

"They did hurt us in the paint," Pistons coach John Kuester said. "We weren't able to close the gap they way we were capable on until that last quarter."

With much of the talk this season about Gasol's injury, Andrew Bynum is quietly having a superb season. He recorded his eighth double-double of the season, finishing with 17 points and 12 rebounds, and is just one of two players who is averaging 20 points and 10 rebounds. The other is Toronto's Chris Bosh.

"He's quickly becoming one of the top centers in the league, by far," Bryant said. "If he just stays on that pace and does what he keeps going, he'll be an All-Star."

Down by as many as 28, the Pistons managed to trim the Lakers' lead to 98-91 after an 18-7 run. Their run sizzled when DaJuan Summers fouled Shannon Brown, who had 12 points, on a 3-point attempt with under two minutes to go. He converted all three free throws.

Despite the loss, the Pistons know they have to just stay afloat until veterans Richard Hamilton (ankle) and Tayshaun Prince (back), both with no timetable on their return, rejoin the team.

"We just want to see steady improvement," said Gordon pregame. "Playoffs, that goes without saying. We want to surprise people this season. People aren't expecting a lot from us, we want to be overachievers this year."

A pair of jaw-dropping offensive and defensive plays went down in this game. With about five minutes to play in third quarter, Bryant was met with Kwame Brown midair, and flipped a no-look shot over his head with his back to the basket. Possibly the block of the early season came with six minutes left in the game when high-flyer Shannon Brown was rejected by Jason Maxiell.

Notes: Lakers forward Luke Walton will miss a minimum of six weeks with a pinched nerve in his back.
