Lakers move to 8-0 start at the start of a season for the first time since 1997/98 with a 99-94 win over the Timberwolves
Kobe was without doubt the star of the show as he bagged 33 of the Lakers points, with solid contributions from Gasol, Odom and Artest. Next up should be a terrfic game on Thursday night as its away to Denver
Last night also saw Miami beaten at home to the Jazz for the first time in 8 games and LeBron's triple double wasn't enough to save the Heat from their third defeat 114-116. Just think of quite a bit of talk of this team challenging the Bulls 72-10 before the season started, but 3 defeats already and we've only had 8 games!
The New Orleans Hornets keep up their terrific start as they remain undefeated after easily beating the Clippers by 21 points.
Unbelievable performance and shooting from Indiana last night as they just weren't missing shots as they notched up 144 points to see off Denver 144- 113!!
The Kinicks continuing to struggle as the Bucks easily beat them, Portland had way too much for Detroit, while Cleveland just about got out of New Jersey with a win as they edged through 2 points.
