What sore ankle?
One game after leaving the arena on crutches as the Hornets took Game 4, Lakers star Kobe Bryant looked just fine in Game 5.
With time running out in the second quarter, Kobe received a pass at the top of the key and drove to the basket. New Orleans' Emeka Okafor tried to contest the dunk, but the five-time NBA champion would not be denied.
Later in the third quarter, Kobe drove to his right and threw down another incredible dunk with his left hand over Hornets forward Carl Landry.
The Lakers went on to win 106-90 to take a 3-2 series lead.
