First of all, let's start off by saying Dwyane Wade had 27 points and 4 steals in this very game. But in the fourth quarter, with Team USA's lead down to two, Kobe Bean Bryant went ape. He scored 13 of his 20 in the final period, including a four-point play that fouled Rudy Fernandez out of the game. Bryant also made two huge passes, one to Deron Williams for a three and another to Dwight for a dunk. Each pass and make served as back-breakers to the Spanish. With this performance, Kobe let the world know why he was the 2008 NBA MVP.
