Did anyone else see how well Donte Green defended Kobe in the last few mins of regulation and overtime tonight? He was flat-out lockdown, fantastic job...until the 2nd overtime.
yeah he looked good, he is developing a lot faster then i thought he would and could be a vital player for that team for a long time.
I suppose he didn't play bad in the 2nd OT either, Kobe just hit two long 3's.
Green did defend him well with his length. He was pretty disciplined too. He didn't fall for many of Kobe's pump fakes, etc.
Those two long 3's Kobe hit were because he fell asleep on D though. On the 1st one... Kobe caught him with his hands down. On the 2nd one... He was very late getting out there and contesting the shot. Only two mistakes, but big mistakes because Kobe put the game out of reach.
