San Antonio Spurs
Los Angeles Lakers
New York Knicks
With 19.9 seconds remaining and the San Antonio Spurs trailing the Los Angeles Lakers 82-81 in the fourth quarter on Tuesday, the Spurs didn’t draw up a play for Tony Parker or Tim Duncan. On this night in Los Angeles, the Spurs drew up a play for Danny Green who was being defended by the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant. With Bryant not playing Green closely, Green made him pay.
The Spurs used a screen to free Green (11 points) for a 3-pointer that Bryant (28 points) was late to react to. By the time the ball sunk through the net, Bryant showed emotion and frustration on his face for giving up the basket.
The Lakers would have once more chance to score, but Kawhi Leonard played his best defense to keep the ball out of Bryant’s hands and so Pau Gasol had to take a forced jumper, and the Spurs won a thriller 84-82.
Here’s the rundown.

Enjoy the following sentence, because this will probably be the only time you ever see it written: Kobe Bryant is no Raja Bell. Bryant may have five NBA championship rings and a trophy case full of various Most Valuable Player awards, but the 2012 edition of the future Hall of Fame shooting guard is well below Bell circa 2006 on the defensive end. In everything else, Bryant puts...
