When Kobe is forcing up shots with a hand in his face, just barely hitting the rim, it kills me inside. How many times did he do that? about 5-10 times. This is why people still call him a "ball hog". He tries to save the game for the team when he knows he is in ice water, or when he is locked down.
Fisher, he got blocked twice on a fastbreak...nuff said.
Sasha Vujacic couldn't do anything except stand around.
Also, 17-29 Free throws? If they made 85% (percent C's shot) of the free throws, they would have made 25 free throws, 8 extra points. It shouldn't have been this close.
I believe kobe read the D, even though it covered him numerous shots, we know he still can hit those. True I agree I died alil when his shots missed, but it's something we have to live with. I believed in him, and overall team D, win or lose, we believe.
