The Best in the Game: MVP Kobe Bryant Turns Back Spurs Upset Bid in Game 1

22 05 2008

 

If you didn’t see Kobe’s performance in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals, then you missed why Kobe was named this past season’s MVP and why the Lakers are en route to another championship. After languishing through 3 quarters of basketball where they seemed lifeless, perhaps due, in part, to their 4 day layoff, and down 20 points, the Lakers rallied back to take a 89-85 win.

Forget everything else though, after only scoring 2 points and not attempting a single free throw in the first half, Kobe scored 25 2nd half points, on 10-17 shooting including the game winning basket with 23 seconds remaining in the game. The Lakers as a team defended well, closed out on the Spurs 3pt shooters and Manu Ginobili had a horrific night. A true off night for the Argentinian star. One final note from last night’s game, Sasha Vujacic, I like dude’s game. Real feisty, hard nosed player. Something many European imports to the NBA aren’t quite lauded for.
