In the third quarter, Bryant and Pau Gasol launched a perimeter-based assault to start the period and jumped out to a 61-52 lead with just under 10 minutes to play. However, the Nuggets launched an attack of their own, and managed to even up the quarter, 26-26, to head into the fourth quarter with the same seven-point deficit, 81-74.

In the fourth Gasol was the focal point on offense and defense. However, Jordan Hill and Ramon Sessions took it upon themselves to extend the lead; opening up the game to a 87-76 point game at one point. Sessions continued his aggressiveness, and the Lakers held a twelve point lead with 7:27 to go. The Nuggets, however, made the game close, 92-87. In the waning minutes of the game, Sessions, Bryant, and Bynum were able to hold off the Nuggets and win the game by a 104-100 margin.
