Kobe Bryant scored 29 points, making him the fifth player in NBA history to score 30,000, and the Los Angeles Lakers snapped a two-game skid with a 103-87 victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night.
Bryant entered the game needing only 13 points to eclipse the scoring milestone and did so with a short jumper late in the first half that was perhaps the least spectacular of his baskets, which included the usual array of soaring dunks, demoralizing transition 3-pointers and turnaround, off-balance jumpers.
Dwight Howard added 18 points for the Lakers, who trailed by a point at halftime but seized control with a 13-0 run to open the third quarter, and the lead grew as large as 20.
Ryan Anderson scored 31, hitting 5 of 8 3-pointers. Greivis Vasquez added 16 points.

I pounded on the Lakers yesterday, and I mine as well do it again. After all, I’m not a huge Kobe Bryant fan nor do I pretty much like anyone on the team. Dwight Howard, the whining baby who wanted out of Orlando, and Co. deserve this sh$t. Thanks to TerezOwens for the picture….
