Now this is the Lakers team we have been waiting to see. They played what was far from a perfect game, but in the end they buckled down, got the stops, and hit so many huge shots I can't even begin to count them all. There were multiple heroes in this game from Fisher to Ariza to of course Kobe Bryant, and it was truly a team effort. I liked how physical the game was (although there were some calls that should have been made), and I loved how the Lakers did not back down. This is going to be an awesome series, and honestly this is what the playoffs are all about. Here is the box score and recap.
I'm on Cloud 9 right now, and I hope you guys are too. Can't wait until Thursday!
Go Purple & Gold!
