After the game, which left the Lakers with a 2-0 lead in the NBA’s West Conference decisive series, Davis shared what made him think of Kobe Bryant at the decisive moment of the game.
– He hit countless shots like that to win games like that. It was a special moment for me and my colleagues – explained shirt 3.
Lakers coach Frank Vogel also remembered Kobe when commenting on Davis’s accurate shot.
– It’s the kind of pitch Kobe Bryant would have made. It was in the Mamba style – said the trainer, referring to the nickname that became Kobe Bryant’s trademark.
