I remember this so clearly.

I had gotten home from work, chucked on ESPN and remembered I had picked Miami to win this game in an upset when most people had the Lakers.  So I watched the game intently, not missing much at all.

Miami were in this game from the get go, and the teams stayed very close throughout the duration.  I was happy, the Heat could snatch this in LA.  Then Kobe took over in the fourth, even though Wade tried to get Miami ahead, Kobe put up 17 points in the last quarter including the game winner: (not a great looking shot but adding to the legend)



By the way that Lakers lineup with Kobe, Pau, Bynum, Artest, Fisher and Odom as sixth man was one of the best units assembled and I don’t like the Lakers at all!
