The 5 Best Clutch Playoff Victories in the Kobe/Gasol Era

1. Lakers vs. Celtics (83-79)

The story book ending was set, Game 7 against the Boston Celtics at home for all the marbles. Could you ask for a better setting? After falling down 2-3 in the series but with the next to games in Los Angeles, the Lakers still had a good chance of capturing the title. They easily beat the Celtics in Game 6, so Game 7 would determine the 2010 NBA champion. After coming back from an early deficit the Lakers would eventually beat the Celtics down the stretch in one of the most exciting and nerve-wracking games in recent memory. The Lakers answered the call, and even after being down in the series they still manage to overcome adversity and beat the hated Celtics for a second straight title.
