We broke down some of the more intriguing numbers from LAL’s 95-83 loss at Chicago:
Percent shooting for Kobe Bryant in his last three contests (25 for 79), after a 7 for 22 performance. It was the third straight contest he had shot 32 percent or less, but Bryant is still at a 46.4 clip for the year.
Points from Kirk Hinrich – a season high – on 9 for 11 shooting (3 for 4 on 3-pointers). The Kansas product also recorded eight assists to just one turnover, and seven rebounds. For Hinrich, it was the best shooting night of his nine-year career when taking at least 10 shots.
Points for the Lakers in the fourth quarter, after outscoring Chicago 29-22 in the third to tie the game at 69 heading into the final frame. L.A. shot just 5 for 19 (26.3 percent) and the Bulls went on an 18-4 run over a six-minute period in the fourth to pull away.
Three-pointers for the Bulls, nearly double their season average. Chicago converted on 9 for 17 from deep (52.9 percent), two of them coming from Marco Belinelli in the last 3:35 of the fourth quarter that essentially put the game out of reach for L.A.
