When Kobe guaranteed that the Lakers were going to make the playoffs he meant it, even if he has to put the whole team on his back and play out of his mind. That’s exactly what he did last night when he made not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 insane plays that gave his Lakers the win over the Toronto Raptors. Read more after the jump.
All three of his three pointers came with the clock ticking down quickly and the game hanging in the balance. The last one sent them to overtime where he hit the game winning dunk. The Raptors defenders “parted like the red sea” an analogy Kobe used after his crazy dunk against the Nets. At 34 years old what Kobe is doing is simply incredible. No other word to describe it. The Lakers won 118-116 moving to 32-31 and a half game out of the eighth seed behind the Utah Jazz in the Western Conference.
