Top 10 Lakers Games of 2011-12 NBA Season

2: Lakers-98 Spurs-84, April 11, 2012

The Los Angeles Lakers played perhaps their best game against one of the best teams in the league, the San Antonio Spurs. What made this win more special is the fact that the Lakers did it on the road without Kobe Bryant.

The Lakers opened the game up with a large lead and there never a moment where the Spurs had a chance to get back. Los Angeles held a 26-point advantage in the fourth quarter and they got contributions from nearly everyone.

Metta World Peace scored 26 points, Pau Gasol had 21 points, but the player of the game was Andrew Bynum who had 16 points and 30 rebounds.


1: Lakers-114 Thunder-106, April 22, 2012

The Los Angeles Lakers’ best game of the 2011-12 season was no doubt their duel against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Lakers were down 17 points in the fourth quarter and it seemed as though the Thunder were on the verge of winning. Los Angeles had already lost Metta World Peace due to a flagrant two foul, and the coaching staff decided to use three bench players in the final period.

However, those three bench players helped the Lakers mount a massive comeback in front of the Staples Center crowd. Kobe Bryant then made the big shots in the fourth quarter and both overtimes to complete the game.

The Lakers outscored the Thunder 30-14 in the fourth quarter, and Bryant finished the game with 26 points.
