ATLANTA HAWKS 1996/97
PG: Muggsy Bogues SG: Darrell Armstrong SF: Kendall Gill PF: Charles Barkley C : Dean Garrett
A clutch win on the road against the Atlanta Hawks with no Dirk Nowitzki. Kobe struggled shooting the ball, so everyone else picked up the slack. Kobe led the team with 19 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists. Devin Harris added in 18 points, AK47 with 16, Vince Carter off the bench with 13 points in 18 minutes, and Bogut with 12 points and 13 rebounds adding 3 blocks with that. A great effort by our guys.
Jason Kidd - Kobe Bryant - Andrei Kirilenko - Dirk Nowitzki - Andrew Bogut
