Kobe Bryant missed his first 15 shots from the field and finished the game 3-for-21 from the field in the Lakers' 88-85 win over the Hornets.

"It was awful," said Bryant. "The shots I was taking were good shots and makeable, but they just weren't going in. But the crowd had my back and I have great teammates to get us through it." 

Bryant didn't hit his first shot until 7:30 remained in the fourth quarter.
