Salty Dogs

Kobe just picked up the Lakers’ third technical foul of the night — following Luke Walton and Phil Jackson. Bryant’s came after an alley-oop one-handed dunk in which he was peeved at referee Kevin Fehr for not calling a foul on Joel Pryzbilla, who nudged Bryant has he was in the air. It’s likely, though, that Fehr was shielded from seeing Pryzbilla’s hand on Bryant’s hip.

Perhaps the Lakers have, as we like to say, the red-ass.
