Kobe fans wait, wait, wait, and wait til the Magic pull it out then come out of the woodwork to boast because, well, I don't know why. Good job.
Lebron's game 1 > Kobe's game 1. Period. The Magic benefited from really clutch shots, the Lakers benefited from the Nuggets not being able to inbound the ball and Kobe free throws.
I still think Cleveland wins this series. The Magic shot 45% from the 3 point line. If they do that every game they are the best team ever. They won't do that though. The Cavs outside of Lebron as a whole were not good tonight. Varejo was good, Smith was decent, everyone else sucked. That also will not happen every night.
Mason Plumlee with another clean block.
He had a great game but he could have done something more in the last few minutes of the fourth quarter. LBJ shouldn't have passed on shots when the game was on the line. He should have taken the shots himself. It kinda reminded me of the Wizards game when he passed the shot the last few seconds.
He also missed like 3 or 4 FTs in the fourth, 2 of which were in the clutch.
Lebron was clutch, but lewis was kobe like clutch.
Here's what Kobe did in the last 2 minutes last night:
0:36 - Clanked a 22-footer, LA gets ball back.
0:30 - Gets fouled, makes 2 FT's.
0:10 - Gets fouled, makes 2 FT's.
0:05 - Intentially fouled, makes 2 FT's
Here's what LeBron did in the final 2 minutes tonight:
1:39 - LeBron makes 1 of 2 FT's
0:40 - LeBron assists Delonte West for wide-open 3
0:25 - LeBron makes 8 foot jumper and gets fouled, makes FT.
0:04 - Gets in on offensive boards, wins jump ball.
You are telling me that Kobe took the game over any more than LeBron did, when LeBron was responsible for 7 points in the final 2 minutes and Kobe was responsible for 6? Homer alert.
