A Cool Battier Read!

It's almost impossible to guard Kobe Bryant - you can do a great job and still see him score 40 - but Shane Battier does it as well as anyone can, and has helped pull the Rockets to 3-3 in their series. This article talks about the matchup, and for good measure, quotes former Devil Chip Engelland and points out that if Kobe (the almost Devil) survives Battier, then he gets Denver's defensive ace Dahntay Jones in the next round.
