Top 5 Kobe Bryant NBA Finals Moments

2: 2000 NBA Finals vs. Indiana Pacers, Game 4

This was the first of many clutch games for the young man from Lower Merion High School. The Lakers were facing the Indiana Pacers in the 2000 Finals, and it was the first time Kobe and Shaq had a chance win an NBA title. Los Angeles had a 2-1 series lead heading into Game 4, and they wanted to do whatever it took to take command of the Finals.

However, that task became very difficult after O’Neal fouled out with only minutes remaining in overtime. Many expected the Lakers to falter without O’Neal, but Bryant came to the rescue.

In the extra period, Bryant led the Lakers to victory, 120-118, and the team took a 3-1 series lead. Kobe finished the game with 28 points, four rebounds and five assists.
