Kobe Bryant’s reputation as one of the greatest clutch players has been earned throughout his illustrious career. Just when you think the Lakers have no chance, Bryant will shoot the team back into the game. One of his greatest moments came last season against the Toronto Raptors.
With the team trailing by five late in the game, Kobe Bryant would come through with not one, not two, but three completely insane three-pointers to somehow tie the game and send it to overtime. The degree of difficulty on these shots were out of this world, and if Bryant misses any of these, the Lakers lose this game. But that is why he is the Black Mamba.
Of course, Bryant couldn’t settle on just sending the game to overtime. He had to ice it in the extra period as well, and he did just that when he drove past a Raptors double team to throw down the jam with 10 seconds left to give the Lakers a much-needed win.
It was truly one of Bryant’s finest moments. If you don’t remember it, or just want to re-live this exceptional moment, check it out below:
