3. Lakers vs. Kings
2002 WCF-Game 7
One of the most competitive series in the three-peat era had to be decided in seven games. The Lakers would have to travel to Sacramento and face the Kings and that annoying crowd in game 7 of the Western Conference Finals. One more win would send either team to the NBA Finals and this Sacramento team was not intimidated by the back to back champs. The game would not be decided in 48 minutes and needed an extra five minutes to decide the outcome. It was a thrilling finish with the Lakers coming out victorious 112-106.
2. Lakers vs Kings
2002 WCF-Game 2
Yes, there are two moments in one series alone. Why would a game seven series clinching victory be considered number three on the countdown behind a game four victory you might ask? Big Shot Rob would cement himself in Laker history by providing us one of the most exciting finishes in the history of the NBA, easily making this the second spot on the list. With that one shot it completely turned that series around and tied the series at two games a piece. The Lakers overcame a 24 point deficit, and Robert Horry provided one of the greatest moments in Lakers history. The final score of this iconic game was 100-99.
