After a long time of absence in the basketball court, the Black Mamba is back but looks a little rusty as he hit the side-board in his first attempt against the long arm of Gordon Hayward.
But Kobe is Kobe, the owner of the third spot of NBA’s total career points. Later in the first quarter he was able to convert a shot with his familiar stroke.
Utah Jazz won against Los Angeles Lakers in their preseason game held in Hawaii, final score 71-90. Derrick Favors led the Jazz with 16 points and 9 rebounds while the Lakers led by their new recruit Lou Williams with 14 points. Kobe Bryant logged 5 points all in the first quarter then Byron Scott him for the rest of the game.
