Game 26 - Nets vs. Lakers - Friday, December 22, 7:30

Kobe Bryant is in town Friday night, two days after Lebron James left. It's all part of a 10-day period where most of the NBA's top scorers face off against the Nets. Next week, it will be Michael Redd, Yao Ming and Dwyane Wade. Bryant's Lakers are among the league's surprises this season and in a certain way, so is No. 24. The team is 14-9, the fifth best in the NBA and Bryant is averaging "only" 28.1 ppg, down from 35.4 last season. Another surprise is Plainsboro native Andrew Bynum, the Laker center.
