In game 4 their were two amazing plays to make the LA Lakers 99-98 win over the Suns a classic. First in the end of regulation Smush Parker stole the ball from Nash and got to Kobe to force overtime. In the end of overtime off of a jump ball tipped to Kobe from Luke Walton Kobe hit an amazing fade away jumper to win the game. Lamar Odom led the way with 25 points and 8 boards in 49 minutes. When Kobe had to sit with foul's Odom hit some big shots while being fouled. Kobe Bryant got 24 points and 8 assists in 39 minutes. Bryant gets the ball to what is a better supporting cast than I thought. Kwame Brown got 12 points and 10 boards in 35 minutes. The thing I like about Brown is that he never gives up on plays anymore he keep's at it. Devean George got 11 points and 2 boards in 21 minutes off the bench. George hit a few big three's and was perfect when the Suns went small. Steve Nash got 22 points and 11 assists in 43 minutes. Nash played well and needed more help to win. Shawn Marion got 20 points and 12 boards in 44 minutes. Marion had a great game but fouled out late and that's a reason they lost. In the other games the Bulls ties it with Miami 2-2 (93-87), the Wizards beat the Cavs and tied it 2-2 (106-96) and last the Kings tied it with the Spurs and won 102-84.
