Bryant was phenomenal in the first half, finding open teammates and knocking down insane shots from all over the court, especially from behind the three-point line.
One play in particular came toward the end of the second quarter. When standing at the right block, Bryant pivoted through a double-team and somehow managed to find Steve Nash in the weak-side corner for a wide-open three, which, of course, dropped.
In the fourth quarter, Bryant went berserk, making several of those "no, no, no...YES" shots that he's best known for, absolutely willing the Lakers to victory. He finished the game with an efficient 38 points (14 in the fourth quarter), seven assists and 12 rebounds.
