Top 10 Lakers Games of 2011-12 NBA Season

8: Lakers-104 Warriors-101, March, 27, 2012

The Los Angeles Lakers faced off with their divisional rival Warriors, and just like most cases, this game came down to the buzzer. The Warriors tend to play extremely well against the Lakers and they put on a show for their home-crowd. The Lakers had a strong start to the game, but the Warriors’ ability to shoot threes brought them back into the game.

However, it was Kobe Bryant who closed the game and delivered the Lakers a victory. In the final 64 seconds of the game, Kobe hit the game-tying shot and also the game-winning shot. Bryant finished the game with 30 points and the Lakers won 104-101.


7: Lakers-73 Mavericks-70, January 16, 2012

It was an emotional game for the Lakers as it was the first time they hosted the team that swept them out of the 2011 playoffs, but it was also the first time Lamar Odom came to Los Angeles since getting traded.

The game was very low-scoring and at times it did not seem like the past two champions were on the court. However, with only seconds left to play, the Lakers had the ball with the chance to win.

Everyone expected Kobe Bryant to shooting the ball, however, he found Derek Fisher open on the perimeter. Fisher hit nothing but net for perhaps his last game-winning shot as a member of the Lakers.
