Sentences I never thought I’d write:

Kobe Bryant reaches, Alec Burks teaches.

Right before this shot Kobe hit a quality jumper right over the top of Burks, so the Jazz guard was looking for a little payback. He got it with this sweet behind-the-back crossover that pretty much broke Kobe’s ankles. Burks had a strong game, scoring 21 points on 14 shots.

Kobe had 26 points on 7-of-22 shooting, plus he made a few other nice plays.
