Shoot Kobe Shoot

December 29, 2005 | 12:14 am

1st quarter:  Kobe 2-5, 2 assists, 6 pts.  Lakers score 35 on 73.7% shooting (sure, that's because everyone was knocking down jumpers with uncanny accuracy... but also because the other guys on the floor touched the ball). 

3-9 in the 3rd, Lakers score 13.   3-10 in the 4th, Lakers score 21.  At one point at the end of the 3rd into the 4th, he took shots on something in the neighborhood of 13 of 15 possessions, I think (it's late, so the math could be off, but you get the point).  It was an ugly game all around, but in the 2nd half, Kobe shot them out of the offense and out of the game. 

Monumentally disappointing loss for the Lakers.
