Kobe is playing so well as of late he may consider returning next season if it keeps up. In all seriousness, Kobe's improved play has helped the Lakers and their covering ability. The Cavs have been hit or miss all season long and seem to come out flat when you least expect. Give me the points as more of a fade from Cleveland.
