He says that, yes, he guarded Kobe for quite a bit of the game. Also says that him and a teammate went to Smitch saying that perhaps they should double Kobe, but Smitch decided to stick with single coverage (and also the zone). When Rose tried to post up Kobe, trying to make him work on the defensive end, Smitch pulled him out of the game because that wasn't part of the game plan.
