Kobe Looking To Establish Inside Game
Kobe Bryant plans to position himself closer to the basket in Game 4 against the Nuggets.
"They tried to do some things defensively. They tried to keep me more on the perimeter," Bryant said after Game 3. "I wasn't in the post a lot. I lived at the elbow the first two games, and we got away from that a little bit in the second half. Pau (Gasol) as well, we saw him on the perimeter way too much. We can't do that. We have to stick to our ground-and-pound game."
Bryant will look to score in the lane more frequently.
"It's the quality of shots, the type of shots," Bryant said. "You want to get shots that you work on, shots that you practice, shots that are in rhythm. On the perimeter, you're taking difficult shots, your percentages drop. We have to get back down to basics, get shots that we're comfortable taking."
