i didn't know the game was won in the 1st quarter
if thats the case i guess kobes not the best closer
Feel free to criticize Kobe. Just be intelligent with your criticism.
You can easily lose games in the 1st quarter. Especially the 1st home game in the NBA Finals for a team that hasn't hosted one in 14 years.
Kobe helped us have a lead at the end of the 1st, in a game we could've easily trailed by a nice margin.
That matters. It kept us in the game.
He didn't play well down the stretch. He didn't shoot well down the stretch. He made some bad decisions down the stretch.
It's okay. We'll move forward. If it satisfies something in your inner being to type that Kobe deserves criticism for the last two games, then please, type away. But, it's really no big deal.
We lost. We could've won. Kobe was a little anxious. But, if his first 3 quarters counted. He kept us in this early.
Some other guys stepped up late, and even Kobe had a nice assist to Pau to cut the deficit to 1.
We never saw a replay on that lay-up he missed. Plus, he should've called time when Pau was on the ground.
Two big plays.
He was over-aggressive tonight, especially late.
It happened. Let's move on.
