Byron Scott Wants More Shots From Kobe

Updated

on

Byron Scott is happy Kobe Bryant has been averaging close to a triple-double in the three games he has played since returning from a three-game rest last week, but the Los Angeles Lakers’ coach is hoping his star player will shoot more moving forward.

“It’s been interesting,” Scott said after practice Saturday. “He’s really trying to keep his [shot attempt] numbers down to the 14, 15, 16 area, and I want him up in the 18, 19 area, but I can’t argue with the results. He’s getting everyone involved. He’s rebounding the ball and had 8, 9, 11 assists in the last couple of games. I can’t argue with the results and he’s still being aggressive as far as looking for his shots but he’s still being aggressive as far as looking for his teammates. I would like his shots to be up more up, but I can’t argue with the way he’s playing.”
