After sitting out three games for some much needed rest and hearing team mates criticize him for not sharing the ball, Bryant returned and became more of a facilitator, reports Lakers Nation.
Bryant took ten shots the entire game and just one in the fourth quarter. He scored 10 points in 32 minutes of play, but had a team high 7 assists and tied for the team lead with 8 rebounds.
Jeremy Lin had one of his biggest games scoring 19 points and going 8 for 11 from the field in 26 minutes of play. He was particularly effective leading the fast break. Nick Young had a team high 21 points.
After the game, Lin complimented Bryant for sharing the ball. You can hear his comments in the clip below.
