The 35-year-old was critical of his performance in the immediate aftermath of the game, but has now changed his opinion.
"It wasn't as bad as I thought it was. The turnovers and things like that, a lot of it was just mistiming. In terms of a floor game, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was," he said, according to ESPN.
Bryant finished with nine points, eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and eight turnovers.
