Actually, I am a Kobe fan. I am not a Lakers fan per se but I like Kobe, MJ, and leaders like them. They will themselves to win but this situation seems untenable. They can't stop Nowitski and Dallas, they can only outscore them. Dallas seems to be able to affect stops on the Lakers. When you can't defend a team better than they can defend you; that's not a good matchup.
