Yep, the Los Angeles Lakers defense continues to be a problem against, at this point, every single team in the league. You'd think going up against the #1 team in the Eastern Conferece, in Madison Square Garden, the purple and gold would be up for the fight. Yeah, not quite. Check this fantastic transition defense by the Lakers, letting some guy named Carmelo Anthony drive right to the basket without much resistance. Kobe certainly did a great job defending the vapors left behind by the 'Melo man.
