Whether he’s trying to pass Michael Jordan or just trying to help the Lakers win, Kobe Bryant is letting off shots like he has a machine gun. Unfortunately a lot of the shots aren’t falling. Though the Mavericks beat the Lakers 140-106, during the second quarter the game was a lot closer. The Mavericks were up by less than 10, Kobe had possession and the opportunity to further close in on the lead when he attempted a 34-foot three attempt that ended up being an airball. What made things worse is that there was five seconds left on the shot clock so he could’ve gotten closer instead of attempting a long three.
