Kobe Bryant scored nine points in the final 2 minutes, which included a 23-footer with Grant Hill in his face and 34 seconds to play. This basket put Los Angeles up 107-100 and everyone knew the Suns were finished.

“Those aren’t shooters shots, they’re scorers shots,” Phoenix’s Steve Nash said. “Those are best-player-in-the-game type shots.”

With this win Kobe Bryant and his Los Angeles Lakers made it in the NBA finals for the third straight season.

The Lakers wrapped up an exciting Western Conference finals  a series-clinching 111-103 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night.

“Kobe’s so good, ” teammate Lamar Odom said, “he makes incredible normal for us.”

This was Kobe’s 10th 30-point performance in his last 11 postseason games.  He moved ahead of Jerry West and into a tie with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for second-most 30-point playoff games at 75.

Kobe also extended his NBA record to eight straight 30-point closeout games on the road.

Lakers coach Phil Jackson will be in search of his 11th NBA championship, fifth with the Lakers.

“Kobe was the man tonight,” he said.
