Complex Says: Kobe Bryant had just sunk two three pointers to help erase an eight point deficit and now with seconds remaining in a tie game, he sized up his defender...and dribbled the ball off his foot. Whoops. Thankfully, Derek Fisher recovered it, but Kobe wasn't just thankful. He wanted the ball back. Even if it meant chasing down the rebound over David Robinson and Tim Duncan in order to put it back. With that fearless foray into the paint, the Lakers secured a 3-1 series lead and the rival Spurs were left wondering just what happened. Again.
