Before last night’s game against the Pacers, Kobe Bryant had missed 13 straight game-tying or go-ahead shots in the final 5 seconds of a 4th quarter or OT. After last night’s game, that streak still stands but Bryant did score 20 points and did hit the go-ahead shot with 12.4 seconds to play in the Lakers comeback victory against the Pacers.
“I’ve hit plenty of them in my day,” a laughing Bryant said about game-winners. “I think the city of L.A. is a little spoiled by it.”
Just a little.
