Kobe BryantÂ had 31 points, seven rebounds and eight assists while playing with a clear mask over his broken nose, and theÂ Los Angeles Lakersreturned from the All-Star break with their 17th consecutive win over theÂ Minnesota Timberwolves, 104-85 on Wednesday night.
Bryant didn’t miss a game afterÂ Dwyane WadeÂ broke his nose and gave him a concussion with a hard foul in the All-Star Game on Sunday.
