GIF Of The Week: Steve Blake Hits Game Winner Over Dwight

On Thursday night, the Lakers faced off against the Rockets for the first time since Dwight Howard spurned them for Houston. With about 3.4 seconds left on the clock, the Lakers found themselves down two points with the ball. Jodie Meeks inbounded from the sideline to Steve Blake coming off a double screen from Pau Gasol and Steve Nash. Blake was freed by the screen and caught the ball on the left wing, faced up and let a three fly over the out stretched arms of Howard, who rotated out to Blake just a half-second late.

The three fell and the Lakers got a huge win on the road thanks the the heroics of Blake. Check out the GIF below.
