That’s the way to end the calendar year. 2010 was a great year including a 16th championship for the Lakers.
Lakers controlled the entire game. They were up double digits for most of the game until the 4th quarter when the 76ers tied the game with 1:33 left to play.
The 76ers had their chances in the final minute. Louis Williams and Jrue Holiday both missed 3 point shots with less than 15 seconds to play.
Jrue Holiday was unbelievable tonight. The former UCLA Bruin had 19 points and 11 assists. Lamar Odom was impressive off the bench once again with 18 points of his own.
Kobe hit two free throws with two seconds left to ice the game.
It should have never been this close, but the Lakers will take the win and extend their streak to two.
Kobe Bryant 33 pts
Andrew Bynum 8 pts, 15 rebs
Lamar Odom 18 pts, 7 rebs
Pay Gasol 20 pts, 8 rebs
Box Score: Lakers 102 76ers 98
