2009 Western Conference Finals Game 3, May 23, 2009 | One of my favorite playoff performances by Kobe. There was uncertainty with the Lakers after they lost game 2 at home to go to Denver, one of the toughest places to play for opposing teams, in a tied series. Kobe had that look all night long and you knew he was all business from the opening jump. He poured in 41 points, none bigger than his dagger three over JR Smith to put the Lakers up 1 with just over a minute remaining. The Lakers wouldn't look back after that three, ending the game on a 10-2 run to win the game and take back the series lead at 2-1.
