The Los Angeles Lakers lost 107-100 to the Boston Celtics on Sunday night but Kobe Bryant did not disappoint in his final matchup against his most heated rival, notching his fourth 30+ point game of the season with 34 points. After the game, Bryant reminisced about his best memories against Boston and what he’ll miss most about that rivalry.
Julius Randle recorded his 34th double-double of the season with 20 points and 10 rebounds, while Jordan Clarkson finished with 17 points and three steals. D’Angelo Russell had nine rebounds, eight points, and six assists and discusses what type of exchange he had with Bryant late in the game.
At halftime, head coach Byron Scott asked his players whether they had ever been in a fist fight to convey a message. After the game, some of the team responds about whether his message came through. It’s all in our post-game videos below.
