Kobe Bryant had a rough shooting night (3-15) in the Los Angeles Lakers 104-103 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, missing a potential game-winner Sunday night with the clock winding down. After the game, Bryant cited leg fatigue as the root of his shooting problems, despite the Lakers having three days without a game. Bryant also admitted his frustrations with not knowing exactly what to do to fix the problem.
Additionally, Bryant commented on the recent trade that sent Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks. Does Kobe think the Mavericks could make a run at the title, now that they’ve added Rondo to their puzzle?
“Probably. I’d say something nice, but I’ll refrain…because of Mark Cuban. So, I’ll bite my tongue,” Bryant smiled after the game.
The Lakers will practice on Saturday before taking on the Kings in Sacramento on Sunday.
