It was clear something was wrong with Kobe Bryant during the Los Angeles Lakers loss to the San Antonio Spurs Friday night. After the game, Jeremy Lin told reporters he saw Bryant in the training room and he was clearly showing signs of illness.
Clearly he’s not feeling well. He doesn’t look good, at all,” Lin told reporters before Bryant talked to the the media.
Bryant later confirmed Lin’s sentiments that he was not feeling well and that for the first time in his career he did not feel like he was able to fight through his illness during the game.
With Ronnie Price serving a one-game suspension, Lin played over 37 minutes, contributing 15 points and four assists in the Lakers loss. After the game Lin was asked about the Lakers shooting slump.
Just keep shooting. You ask any great shooter, ‘How do you get out of a slump? You just keep shooting, next one’s in.’ You don’t have to change anything.”
The Lakers will look to bounce back against a tough opponent on Sunday. The Lakers play the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center. The Lakers lost 127-104 in their last meeting.
