Kobe Bryant Was Not Happy with Jeremy Lin Not Fouling Mike Conley

In Kobe Bryant's mind, the Los Angeles Lakers needed to foul, and Jeremy Lin wasn't acting nearly fast enough. 

With the Lakers down one with time ticking vs. the Memphis Grizzlies, Mike Conley was draining precious time, and after yelling at Lin to intentionally foul Conley, Mamba decided to take matters into his own hands. 

Lakers coach Byron Scott indicated that he wanted Lin to wait until around the 10-second mark to foul. 

Bryant went on to miss the potential game-tying shot at the end of regulation, likely because the majority of the Grizzlies team was guarding him.
