Kobe Bryant’s shooting percentage has decreased each month since the start of the season, and now sits at 42.1 thus far in February.
"I'm not in a slump," Bryant said. "I just haven't shot it."
Bryant strongly suggested his new-found facilitating role has contributed to the drop in scoring efficiency.
"It takes me out of my rhythm quite a bit," Bryant said. "It's just a matter of getting used to it. I'm working it out."
Bryant has connected on just one of his last 35 three-point attempts.
"I haven't shot that many consciously," Bryant said. "I'm trying to get into areas that are more threatening and get away from the long ball a little bit."
