This is Kobe not shooting to send a message

Chris Herring

Who is OK with that?! RT @SportsNoBS: Agreed, but why are we OK w Kobe killing teammates every yr? When plays no D and takes all the shots.

Mark Medina

ICYMI: Lakers’ Kobe Bryant, Carlos Boozer, Jeremy Lin rest in Saturday’s practice bit.ly/1uQj0l2

Jonathan Feigen

Harden has four 30-point games this season, tied with LeBron and Kobe for most in NBA.

Dan McCarney

Obscure, possibly meaningless stat: Danny Green has higher career block pct (2.2) than Jordan (1.4), Kobe (1.0) and even Dwyane Wade (2.1).

Jeff Caplan

Would Kobe ever drop the *we're fragile* card?

Tim MacMahon

After doing a heck of a job defending Kobe Bryant, Chandler Parsons is looking forward to the James Harden challenge. es.pn/11Fjajj

Mark Medina

Lakers' Kobe Bryant, Carlos Boozer, Jeremy Lin sit out of Saturday's practice bit.ly/1uPmFj7

Janis Carr

Kobe (rest), Lin (sore back) and Boozer (sore left shoulder) all sat out practice. None are considered serious enough to miss Sun game

Mark Medina

Kobe Bryant also sat out of practice. Byron had him rest after he cited heavy legs last night

Fabian Garcia

Conocé al nuevo Kobe que es sensación y deslumbra en Los Angeles; VIDEO: basquetplus.com/video/conoc%C3… http://t.co/45zq5LMZ64

Mike Prada

That Welbeck back-foot tap was the equivalent of a 30-foot contested Kobe heat check three

Mark Heisler

Why won't #Laker pursue Rondo IMHO? #Kobe will remind them how easy it is to cheat off him and guard lane--as Kobe always does vs. #Celtics

Earl K. Sneed

After taking on the challenge of defending Kobe, can you expect the same from Chandler Parsons on James Harden? Parsons: "Yep. For sure."

Bill Oram

Kobe backs up contract with words, not play Friday in Dallas as Lakers get demolished ocregister.com/articles/laker…

Erik Gundersen

LaMarcus Aldridge's new nickname for Chris Kaman: "Kobe Kaman."

Bill Oram

Percentage wise, this was Kobe's second-worst shooting night of the season. His 6/22 (27.3%) only better than the 1/14 game when he was ill.

Tim MacMahon

Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki: Two directions es.pn/1v5RnUV Good look at two 36-year-old stars from @Baxter Holmes' LA perspective

Dwain Price

The #Mavs made 18-of-35 3-pointers, leaving Kobe Bryant to say: "They are extremely good. I mean, 55% from three is crazy."

Dwain Price

"Tonight is a setback. But sometimes you take a couple of steps forward before taking a step back." -- #Lakers G Kobe Bryant

Baxter Holmes

Byron Scott questioned whether the Lakers were too satisfied from their last two wins to compete tonight. Kobe: “Maybe."

Royce Young

Five-Star Review is up. Adding stuff throughout the action tonight. Big blowouts, a Raptor attack and Kobe from deep: cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-bas…

Janis Carr

Kobe: "My legs were there..." "Nick we couldnt really get him into a rythmn."

Bill Oram

Kobe and Mark Cuban also get a bro hug in before going there separate ways.

Janis Carr

So true RT @Marc Stein: When anyone asks how long before Kobe snaps ... I try to imagine how Chick would cope calling games like this

Marc Stein

Must say tho: When anyone asks how long before Kobe snaps ... I find myself trying to imagine how Chick would cope calling games like this

Kamenetzky Brothers

Kobe will rest when he's dead... Which should be around mid-December. AK

Gary Lee

Kobe has played 31 minutes through three quarters and I hope he’s done for the night as the Mavs lead by 27.

Baxter Holmes

End 3Q: DAL 110, LAL 83. Kobe: 6-22 FGs, 17 points. Dirk: 8-10 FGs, 23 points.

Kamenetzky Brothers

As soon as the Mavs ran it out to 20-whatever in the 2nd half of the third, Byron should have sat Kobe. Why not steal a little rest? BK

Bill Oram

A+ example of how to get muted. RT @envyoriginal: @Bill Oram are you reporting or doing paid job for plantation owners ranting against kobe?

Earl K. Sneed

Best game of Chandler Parsons' young @DallasMavs career? His defense has been awesome on Kobe and he's got 21 pts. #DALvsLAL

Tim MacMahon

Probably the best all-around performance of Chandler Parsons' season. Has 21 points late in 3rd and doing good job guarding Kobe (5-20 FG).

Gary Lee

“Kobe shots too much."

Kamenetzky Brothers

Rick Carlisle looking to keep Kobe's minutes down tonight, it seems. BK

Dan McCarney

Ayres with the Kobe assist to BAYNES

Earl K. Sneed

Kobe gets called for pushing off Parsons and this @AACenter crowd erupts. @Dallas Mavericks lead 84-71 midway through the 3rd. #DALvsLAL

Gary Lee

Midway through 3, Lakers trail 84-71 in Dallas as Kobe has 13 points and seven assists. Check out the highlights. lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Earl K. Sneed

Monta Ellis answers a Kobe score with a driving three-point play. @Dallas Mavericks lead 82-71 with 6:37 in the 3rd. #DALvsLAL

Kamenetzky Brothers

Kobe needs to start making some buckets, because he's giving up a bunch on the other end. BK

Kurt Helin

Dwight Howard has plasma therapy (Kobe therapy) on right knee dlvr.it/7bbQSh

Bill Oram

Kobe chucking in Dallas, where the Lakers trail 68-59 at halftime. Even with Kobe's 3-11 effort, Lakers shooting 57.1%.

Mike Trudell

Kobe and Young have now hit 5 straight collective shots, including Bryant's 3 and Young's 2, for 8 straight FG makes for LAL. DAL up 7.

Earl K. Sneed

Kobe has seen the ball go in and made his last three shots. #DALvsLAL

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons scores on a drive around Kobe, and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 64-54 with 1:54 left in the half. #DALvsLAL
