Research Notes

  • Last season, Kobe Bryant had 607 plays in isolation, by far the most in the NBA (James Harden was second with 502 plays). On Sunday, Bryant had just two plays in isolation, going 1-for-2 from the floor on such plays.

  • The Lakers played well in the first half when Kobe Bryant drove to the basket. In the second half, the Lakers only attempted two shots off Bryant drives, missing them both.

  • Kobe Bryant played 28 minutes in his return to action Sunday, but the Lakers were far better offensively in the 20 minutes he was off the court. The Lakers scored 53 points with Bryant off the court as opposed to 41 with him on the court.

  • From Elias: The Lakers didn't have a starter score in double figures and the bench outscored the starters 71-23.Since starts were first recorded in the 1970-71 season, it's the first time the Lakers didn't have a starter score in double digits AND it's the first time the Lakers bench outscored their starters by this much (48).
