NBA FINALS

Lakers Take 3-1 Lead

Kobe Bryant was Kobe Bryant in the Lakers' game 4 win in Orlando, putting up 32 points, 8 assists, and 7 rebounds, but it was the team's role players that ended up putting them over the edge. Veteran point guard Derek Fisher drained a clutch three pointer with 4.6 seconds remaining in regulation to tie the game at 87 and force overtime, where he came up big once again with another three pointer with 31.3 seconds remaining. The Lakers also got a boost from the young Trevor Ariza, a former Magic player, who exploded for 13 points in the 3rd quarter. Orlando now faces the daunting prospect of coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the finals, a feat no team has accomplished in league history.
