Back on Track: Kobe was 2 of 37 from beyond the arc coming into this game, but it seems the Black Mamba has forgotten all about it as he goes off for 38 points (13 of 21), 4 of 5 from the three, 12 rebounds, and 7 assists in the victory over the Dallas Mavericks. 14 of his points came in the 4th quarter where Kobe went for a perfect 5 of 5 from outside the paint and also finished with a career 31,000 points, becoming the only 5th player in NBA history to do so. Dirk countered with his best performance of the season, going for his first double-double of the 2013 with 30 points on 11 of 19 shooting (4 of 4 from three), and 13 boards. His former teammate, Steve Nash, showed signs of life in the Lakers’ third straight win after the All-Star break, scoring 20 points and handing out 4 assists.
