Top 5 Lakers Western Conference Finals Games in the Last Decade

1. Lakers vs. Blazers
2000 WCF-Game 7

The Lakers had the number one seed in the west and Shaq and Kobe were looking for their first NBA title but first they had to face a battle tested Portland Trail Blazers team that included Scottie Pippen and Rasheed Wallace. Although the game was played at Staples Center it sure did not bother the Blazers as they controlled most of the game until the fourth quarter. The Lakers erased a 15 point deficit with 10:28 to play in the fourth quarter, and would go on to win the West 89-84. The defining moment of the game came when a young Kobe Bryant lobbed it up to Shaq for a thunderous dunk and that would be the dagger that finished off the Blazers.

This year might not have been our year, but we have much to celebrate and remember in recent memory, so let’s use that as a reminder that we will be back, hopefully sooner rather than later.
