Kobe Bryant plays but has a poor night in Lakers’ 78-75 loss to Miami

first_imgThe Lakers shot just 31.5 percent from the field, 17.4 percent (4 of 23) from 3-point range. Miami shot 42.3 percent, 12.5 percent (2 of 16) from beyond the arc.The Lakers have lost four of five, the Heat have won two consecutive and three of four.His poor game notwithstanding, Bryant said his stamina was there.“My energy feels good. It’s just getting the legs used to moving again and having to move them,” Bryant said, laughing. “Gotta get the blood circulating.”Bryant admitted sitting out games and then trying to come back and get into a rhythm is not easy.“It’s tough,” he said. “But it is what it is, just trying to work through it and get the body moving. The hard part is sitting down for stretches and then trying to get back in it. I feel like the tin man, you know what I mean? But that’s just part of the process.”Scott recently admitted that he had been playing Bryant, who in 2013-14 played just six games because of injuries, too many minutes. A decision was made to make Bryant’s availability a game-by-game thing.“We’re just trying to make sure he can get through this season totally unscathed and get ready for next season,” Scott said.For someone like the ultra-competitive Bryant, getting him to go along with sitting out games was not the easiest thing for Scott to do.“I think he’s starting to accept it,” Scott said. “That’s the one thing that we talked about a couple of weeks ago when we started talking about doing things like this. And knowing his competitive nature and how much he wants to play even when he’s hurting, I had to tell him, ‘You’ve got to think of it the way I’m thinking of you. I’m just trying to make sure you’re ready to play each and every game that you can play because we know how hard you’re going to go.’ “However, Bryant admitted it kills him to not play.“Well, of course,” he said. “I’m just trying to be calm, to be patient.”Bryant, Scott said, is no spring chicken in this game.“He’s not 20, guys,” Scott said. “He can’t play 40 minutes a night like he used to and he can’t play every single night. You’ve gotta try to get the very best of him that you can when he can play.”As of Tuesday, Scott said the plan was for Bryant to play Thursday at home against Cleveland and then stay back when the team travels to Utah for a Friday night game.For anyone wondering, Scott said there have been no discussions about shutting Bryant down for the season.“That’s the one thing we won’t even consider right now.”Scott did say, though, that he expects there could be issues with Bryant being able to stay consistent with his play after taking a game or two off.“I think it is going to affect him because it is going to throw off his timing a little bit and his rhythm,” Scott said. “But that’s the price we have to pay right now for that.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Bryant, whose most recent game before Tuesday was Jan. 7 against the Clippers, played 32 minutes — including the last five of the game — and scored 12 points. He shot just 3 of 19 from the field — 1 of 9 in the first half — but he did make two 3-pointers down the stretch. He also missed several shots during winning time, including a 3-point attempt with a second left that could have sent the game into overtime.“Yeah, it felt good,” said Bryant, when asked if he thought the shot was going in.The Lakers (12-27) trailed 18-0 but caught the Heat (17-21) at 46-46 in the third quarter before Miami regrouped.Ed Davis and Jordan Hill each scored 12 points for the Lakers. Mario Chalmers led Miami with 19 points, Hassan Whiteside scored 15 and Chris Andersen had 12. Dwyane Wade did not play in the second half because of a strained hamstring and scored just four points.center_img Kobe Bryant had missed six of the Lakers’ previous 11 games ahead of Tuesday night’s against the visiting Miami Heat, including the previous two and three of the past four. Bryant is 36, but he’s in his 19th season NBA because he did not play in college.His energy level has suffered, his body is sore and the Lakers want him to be able to complete his current two-year contract that ends next season. That means Bryant will rest other games as well the remainder of this campaign, but he played against the Heat.“Just talking to him yesterday, talking to him this morning, he felt pretty good,” coach Byron Scott said ahead of tip-off. “The four or five days that he had off, I thought it was probably a good enough reason.”Bryant was to be limited to a hard-cap 32 minutes, even if that meant not playing in overtime. This game never got to that point as the Heat came away with a 78-75 victory over the Lakers before a sellout crowd of 18,997 at Staples Center.last_img read more
