Lakers Play Of The Week: Kobe Nails The Prayer Shot (Three Times)
The Lakers may not have a championship record just yet, but Kobe Bryant has sure been doing some remarkable things as of late. In the Lakers overtime win against the Toronto Raptors Friday night, Kobe hit three consecutive very well contested three-pointers to send the game into overtime, plus had a dunk at the end of OT to seal the win.
So, which made our play of the week? Well, after Kobe made a baseline three pointer from a Steve Nash no look inbounds pass, Kobe came right back to impress again. With the Lakers down by three and 8.4 seconds on the clock, Steve Blake inbounded the ball to a double teamed Kobe Bryant, and with the time expiring Kobe still drained it to send the game into overtime. It almost felt like a playoff game until you realized that it was just the Toronto Raptors. Check out our video below.
