The Los Angeles Lakers put together yet another stunning, late, victory-- this time against the Toronto Raptors. Kobe Bryant was absolutely insane down the stretch in the fourth quarter, single-handedly willing the Lakers back into the game with his barrage of stupidly difficult three-point field goals. Still, Steve Nash had a huge three-point field goal in overtime to tie the game, and both Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace played great defense as the game went on, which all added up to the Lakers finally climbing over the .500 wall.
Now, the Lakers are just .5 games out of the playoffs and are in hot pursuit of the Utah Jazz for their eighth seed in the playoffs. In this edition of The Playbook, we'll take a look at a handful of key plays down the stretch from Friday night's incredible comeback victory.
In the immortal words of Mark Jackson, "momma there goes that man".
