Steve Blake hits the corner three but it's likely too little, too late.
Kobe has to sit out more. I don't care if he wants to play. You're the coach, D'Antoni, act like it and make him sit. He can't keep this up.— Lakers Nation (@LakersNation) April 7, 2013
Blake Griffin slams it home off the Chris Paul miss and this one looks to be over.
