Lakers Vs. Heat Halftime Score: Kobe Bryant Scorching LeBron James And Miami, Los Angeles Up 50-38

Kobe Bryant has started the game out hot for the Los Angeles Lakers to put them up a dozen at halftime. Bryant came out like a man possessed in the first half and didn't plan on letting up early. Bryant started the game 8-10 from the field in the first quarter, grabbing 18 points and nearly matching the entire Miami Heat team (20 points). Kobe used an array of post moves to try and punish Dwyane Wade on the defensive end, and Bryant had his way. Check out some of the highlights below.

Metta World Peace added nine points, and Andrew Bynum put in eight points and seven rebounds. LeBron James is leading Miami with 12 points, four rebounds, and five assists, Mario Chalmers added nine points, and Wade put in eight points.

The Heat are really missing Chris Bosh (out due to his grandmother's death), as their big men have been unable to score underneath the basket--Joel Anthony and Udonis Haslem have shot 0 for 7 so far.
