Yeah. I know Morris sucked, but he ALWAYS sucks.. Pau's play wasn't anything new either.
I just thought Kobe's play on offense tonight was for the most part quite bad. He took 41 shots, and wasn't having a good night shooting in any sense. A lot of it was on the refs, but at one point you just need to realize shots aren't really falling, nor are you getting calls, so maybe try and do something different.
If MWP, Hill & Nash don't step up, we lose this game, and Kobe had a part in that.
I'm a HUGE Kobe fan, but to me this was one of his worst games I've seen him play, even if he did hit some big shots. Defensively he was good though.
It's mostly about his first half play, you don't take 17 shots in a half unless you are feeling it, or are confident you are getting calls. None of that was happening, and it hurt us. He picked up the O on the 2nd half, he still took 24 more shots (!) but he started to gain some rythm and played a bit smarter.
