Jeremy Lin wanted to take the game-winning shot Kobe Bryant missed
Listen to Lin’s full comment below.
Kobe Bryant didn’t have his best game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday. Bryant was hassled into a 3-for-15 shooting night by Oklahoma City’s team of long, athletic defenders, finishing the game with just nine points. Bryant had a chance to win it at the buzzer, but his pull-up jumper clanked off the rim. The Thunder won, 104-103, without Kevin Durant.
After the game, Lakers point guard Jeremy Lin — who scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting — offered some interesting comments on the night’s final possession:
Jeremy Lin on Kobe’s final shot: “I like game-winners too. I would like to shoot some. But I get it.”
