Kobe Bryant steals the show again in Lakers' win over the Pelicans

Kobe Bryant steals the show again in Lakers' win over the Pelicans

It was a fun day with plenty of parades, sunshine and good times during Mardi Gras.

The French Quarter was happily rolling toward Fat Tuesday, the locals and tourists ready for a weekend of gumbo, hurricane drinks and everything in between.

Only in a little corner of the city was there a lack of fun. The New Orleans Pelicans weren't really in a celebratory mood Thursday after losing to the Lakers, 99-96.

Thirty-nine points from 22-year-old Anthony Davis weren't enough to offset 27 points from 37-year-old Kobe Bryant. The Lakers' winning streak improved to two games, cause for a parade with candy-tossing floats in a season with so little joy.
