At the half of the Rockets vs. Lakers game tonight, one Laker had accounted for half of the team's 44 first half points on 10-15 shooting (2-2 from three), and chipped in 6 rebounds.

Ladies and gentlemen, your starting PF for the LA Lakers --- Brian Cook. Guess last night was just the beginning to Brian Cooks' NBA coming out party.

Of course, he hasn't scored in the 3rd quarter yet, and the Rockets have stormed back from 11 down at halftime to tie the game.

Cook's no more than a role player, but when he gets open looks his jumper's about as sweet as anyone's. I'm honestly kinda surprised it's taken this long for him to start having these kinds of outbursts.

being an illini alum and fan, i have to agree... especially with kobe taking up so much attention, mostly he just needs to hit open looks and as mentioned, his jumper is pretty money. I remember him matching up with drew gooden when they were in college and thinking that Cook's low post game wasn't near as good, but his jumper was much better.

on a side note, nothing like playing the mavs to get your career jump-started...

Don't call it a comeback...
