More than at the rim, when Smith was trailing and Kobe was dunking, Smith learned the lesson out hight when Kobe blew by him. Then Kobe elevated to throw down and there was nothing Smith could do about it but look bad.
Smith had his chance at revenge but fumbled the ball out of bounds on a play to win the game (to be fair, Devin Harris didn’t throw a good pass and by the time he got it there Smith had to rush because Dwight Howard was closing in for the block). At the end of the game, Kobe was the guys making plays and scoring of Smith. He was playing like it was the 1990s again.
