Kobe battles through double-team against Clippers. The By The Numbers recap for the Lakers 105-95 loss to the Clippers at Staples Center on Friday. The Lakers are now 0-3, and next play home to Detroit on Sunday. 1,725 The amount of steals Kobe Bryant has in his Lakers career, after picking one up against the Clippers.  He passed Magic Johnson for first all-time in Lakers’ history. 107 The number of points Lakers’ opponents are averaging through the first three games of the season. 59 The number of turnovers the Lakers have committed in the first three games this season, including 45 combined in the last two against Portland and the Clippers. 48 The number of points the Lakers’ bench has scored in the first three games of the season. No player has yet to score in double-figures off the bench either. 40 The number of points Kobe Bryant scored on Friday, on a brilliant 14-23 from the field and 10-10 from the foul line. Problem was he got little help, as three Laker starters had at least five fouls, including Dwight Howard. Kobe is shooting an amazing 61.4% from the field, and 94.1% from the line through the first three games. 34 The number of years since the Lakers last started a season 0-3. You want to know how that season ended? Here’s a hint, not with a championship. Magic Johnson was drafted #1 by the Lakers the next season, and the rest is history. 20 The number of points Steve Nash and Antawn Jamison have scored combined this season. Granted Nash didn’t play on Friday night, but it is highly unlikely that anyone saw those numbers coming. 11 The number of assists that leads the Lakers. While that number certainly isn’t impressive to begin with, what’s really disturbing is that Steve Nash isn’t the guy that has them. Both Pau Gasol and Steve Blake lead the team with those 11 assists. Nash has just eight so far this season in his two games. Let’s hope next game’s numbers are a lot more fun to talk about, besides Kobe’s record steal of course.
