The Los Angeles Lakers beat the Miami Heat last night at the staples center 108-107. The Black Mamba scored 33 points, but his off-balance bank shot from over Wade’s outstretched hand will definitely rank among the most incredible shots of his career.
The U.S. Olympic teammates were the driving force behind this action packed game, which featured a shoving incident between Lamar Odom and Jermaine O’neal, leading Odom to be ejected.
Pau Gasol scored 22 points and Andrew Bynum added 19 points and eight rebounds for the Lakers, who had won seven straight games by double digits.
The Leakers not only improved their league-best record to 15-3, but won their eighth straight game.
“That’s Black Mamba,” said Artest. “I knew he was gonna make it.”
“He was supposed to get the ball, I know that,” said Phil Jackson. “What do you want me to say about it? It’s Kobe.”
