Kobe Bryant after Spurs loss.

Kobe and Lakers are ice cold in 93-80 loss to Spurs

The Lakers were within 11 points going into the 4th quarter but then the Spurs put the game out of reach in the 4th by going up by as many as 22 points. The Spurs were able to make up shooting a sub par 41 percent on the night by knocking down 10 for 23 three-point shots, on their way to 93 to 80 victory the Lakers.

The Lakers were ice cold on the night, finishing 37 percent from the field and 2 for 12 from the three-point line. The coldest of all by far was Kobe Bryant who shot 1 for 14 from the field and finished with just 9 points on the night.

Here is a good look of Kobe’s lone made basket on the night captured by @annietimebaby on Instagram.

A possible explanation for the poor performance by Bryant was that he was feeling under the weather.

Bryant later confirmed with reporters that he was not feeling well.

Carlos Boozer was hot early and tried to keep the Lakers in the game; he finished with 19 points and 8 rebounds. Boozer has seemed to hit his stride with the Lakers of late; in the last 3 games prior to Friday’s game Boozer averaged 17.3 points and shot 56.8 percent from the field.

Jordan Hill netted a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds. Jeremy Lin had 15 and 4 assists.

The Spurs were led by Cory Joseph in scoring with 14 points off the bench. Tim Duncan played just 25 minutes and finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds.

The loss puts the Lakers record on the season at 1-8 which is the worst start in franchise history.

The Lakers get a day to rest before hosting the Golden State Warriors on Sunday at Staples Center.
