Complex Says: Two games prior, Kobe Bryant took just two shots in the second half of a 17-point loss to Sacramento, a supposed act of defiance to some, treason to others. But in the final game of the regular season, he needed just two shots to save the Pacific Division title and home court advantage in the playoffs. The impressiveness of Bryant's buzzer beaters over the years is not in the sheer volume, but the degree of difficulty. None were more difficult than these. Two threes, both with only a second to shoot and a defender suffocating him. Two threes, all net.
