12:31 PM ET 02.10 | The Lakers were in danger of reaching a new low on Friday night, trailing the lowly Bobcats by 20 points at one point. But Los Angeles stormed back, pulling out a 100-93 victory and moving to 24-27 on the season. The Lakers have won seven of their last nine games, showing a little life despite injuries to Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard. However, because it was such a chore to beat the Bobcats, Lakers star Kobe Bryant was not in the best of moods after the victory. "Just irritated," Bryant said. "Very irritated." Bryant had to be disappointed in part of his own performance, as he went scoreless in the first half for just the sixth time in his 17-year career. He was a huge part of the comeback though, scoring 20 points in the second half and 14 in the fourth quarter alone. Still, if the Lakers are going to make a serious run during the second half of the season, they will need much more consistent effort. Most good teams won't allow 20 point comebacks.

He probably has sand under there. The Heat just added to the existing irritation.
