The Lakers snapped their 3 game losing streak with Kobe hitting a 17-foot jumper with 1.9 seconds left in the game against the Toronto Raptors Tuesday night.
“That’s my responsibility here, to close things out,” Bryant said with a shrug. “The same shot in Orlando, and I missed it.”
Pau Gasol scored 17 pointand nine rebounds and Andrew Bynum had 22 points, to help the Lakers come back from the winless road trip.
Lamar Odom had 10 points, eight rebounds, five assists.
“In the second half, we picked it up and it paid off,” Gasol said. “We’ve got to start building on our confidence and really stepping it up. So far lately, we’ve been struggling. We’ve been playing well in stretches, but not consistently, and we’ve got to figure that out.”
With a steal by Derek Fisher and two free throws with 30 seconds left it put the Lakers ahead by four.
Hopefully this is the start of a really good winning streak, but if left up to Kobe we will be sealing the deal in the last shot.
Way to go KOBE
