Not exactly the best night for the
Here are five takeaways from their 96-80 loss Wednesday to the Pelicans.
1. Bryant came into the game shooting 37%. Then he hurt his shooting shoulder and was 50% the rest of the night with his left hand. Then again, he took only two shots with it. (He later said he wasn't worried about his shoulder.)
2. Nick Young was thankful after he emerged from a January swoon with back-to-back games of 23 and 24 points. Now he's back on the skids ... three-for-11 shooting ... nine points ... ouch.
3. Shhhh. That's five silent games in a row for Carlos Boozer, who hasn't hit double figures in scoring or rebounding since a 13-point game Jan. 11 against Portland.
