Shooter: Kobe Bryant
Game: Game 2, 2004 NBA Finals
Date: 6/8/2004

Some of Kobe Bryant's greatest moments seem to have come in series that he lost. He probably still enjoyed them anyway. Especially this one. Down by 3, ten seconds away from losing the first two games of the 2004 Finals on their home court, L.A. needed Kobe to deliver. He wouldn't disappoint. Alas, the rest of the series was a giant disappointment for the Lakeshow; after winning Game 2 in overtime, they went down meekly in five games to the Pistons.
