Throwback Thursday: Kobe Bryant Alley-Oops to Shaq to Cap a Lakers Comeback

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffNovember 15, 2013

In the 2000 Western Conference Finals, the Portland Trail Blazers had taken two games in a row after being down 3-1 in the series against the top-seeded Los Angeles Lakers, and the momentum was in Portland's favor headed into a do-or-die Game 7. 

The Blazers led by 15 points in the fourth quarter, and just as it looked like the Trail Blazers would mount the huge upset, the Lakers stormed back in one of the greatest Game 7 comebacks in NBA history, sealing it with an alley-oop from Kobe Bryant to Shaquille O'Neal.

The Lakers went on to beat the Pacers 4-2 in the NBA Finals to win their first championship since 1988.
