Kobe on the Heat’s struggles

MIAMI — Here’s some of what Kobe Bryant had to say today about the struggling Miami Heat, losers of five in a row going into Thursday’s game against the Lakers: “It’s always tough, it’s always tough to go through those kinds of streaks, especially when you’re under a microscope. … The difference between us (the Lakers and the Heat), is that we all know what our roles are. Everything is cemented for us, you know what I mean? For them, they’re still trying to figure that out. It makes it a little tougher.”
