Holy 11 Turnovers!

The Lakers started a nine-game road trip tonight in Detroit, never an easy task. And they suffered a heart-breaking 90-89 loss when Tayshaun Prince drained a three with four seconds left and then Odom tossed up an airball at the buzzer (in fairness to Odom, he'd taken just four shots the entire game prior to that heave). One wonders if the task might not have been so difficult had Kobe Bryant managed his triple-double in more conventional fashion. Indeed, while Bryant went for 39 points and 10 rebounds, he also tallied a whopping 11 turnovers. I can't remember the last time I saw somebody rack up that many TO's. Amazing.
