Roy nose his place.
Kobe ‘accidentally’ broke Roy Hibbert’s nose midway through the first quarter. Then Roy broke Kobe and the Lakers in the fourth.
Hibbert dropped in 8 of his 18 in the final period to give Indiana its fifth win in six games and send LA to its fourth loss in five and third in a row. Once the bleeding was controlled, Roy came back out ready to do battle in his nondescript Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011‘s, adding 8 rebounds and 4 assists to his gritty showing.
Kobe broke out a fresh colorway of Kobe VII‘s for 33, 8 and 4 but got modest help from his teammates.
