The Detroit Pistons had the ball with about 2.8 seconds left in the half to try and get a bucket before intermission. Instead, they turned the ball over with 0.4 seconds left to play. We’ve seen great things happen with 0.4 seconds left when Derek Fisher hit a shot in San Antonio to give the Lakers the win in Game 5 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals. The Lakers would ultimately go on to win that series with the 3-2 series lead Fisher’s shot gave them.
Today, more magic happened with 0.4 left on the clock. Kobe was inbounding the ball from the right sideline. Kyle Singler was over playing Earl Clark on the back side, who slipped back door as Kobe released the pass toward the rim. Clark slammed the ball through rim to give the Lakers a 62-51 lead going into the half. Check the video below.
