Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Kobe Bryant has endured his share of misery on and off the court this season. But his star never shined brighter than on Wednesday night. Bryant's long fadeaway 3-pointer at the buzzer gave the Lakers a 105-104 double-overtime victory over the Portland Trail Blazers and an improbable Pacific Division title. "During the timeout, I told my teammates, 'give me the ball, set a good pick, and we'll go home with a (win)'," Bryant said. A loss by the Sacramento Kings earlier Wednesday opened the door for the Lakers (56-26), but they needed roughly three hours to claim the win and looked like a beaten team on more than one ocasion. "It was a great shot by the young fellow, Kobe," teammate Shaquille O'Neal said. "This is how a great player makes a shot. It's funny, after all the stuff we went through this year, we still win the Pacific Division. This is the moment we've been waiting for." Los Angeles trailed, 87-84, in regulation when Portland forward Ruben Patterson missed two free throws with eight seconds left. On the ensuing possession, Bryant was stymied by Patterson's defense and appeared to have no shot. He pumped several times unsuccessfully, slid his body to the right and just managed to get off a 26-foot 3-pointer that went right through and tied the contest with 1.1 seconds remaining. The first overtime was a battle between NBA superstar O'Neal and Zach Randolph. Each big man scored scored six points in the extra session, with O'Neal's basket tying it at 95-95 with 30 seconds left. After O'Neal fouled out with just over three minutes remaining in the second overtime, Damon Stoudamire scored Portland's last seven points, including a coast-to-coast, slashing drive to the hoop that gave Portland a 104-102 lead with 2.2 seconds to go. Following a questionable loose ball foul on Portland's Darius Miles for bumping Derek Fisher, the stage was set for Bryant, who scored 37 points. He took Gary Payton's inbounds pass, elevated and drilled another 26-footer over NBA blocked shots leader Theo Ratliff, who hit Bryant's arm and knocked him to the floor. "It's always a wonderful sight to see them go in," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "It's something ridiculous almost to see the shot with the arc like that go in, but we're not surprised." "I have a courageous little brother," O'Neal said. "He's always got my back." Los Angeles had trailed the entire game until a 3-pointer by Payton with four minutes left tied the score at 79. From that point on there were seven lead changes and eight ties. "Tonight showed a lot about this team," Fisher said. "We could have easily folded. Shaq fouls out, being down with less than a second left. ... Kobe showed a lot of toughness." The second-seeded Lakers will play the Houston Rockets in the first round of the NBA playoffs. Randolph had 21 points and 18 rebounds for the Trail Blazers (41-41), who missed the playoffs for the first time in 22 seasons. "It was a great game in so many ways," Randolph said. "Kobe just hit two amazing shots, it just means we have to spend the whole summer working harder and harder to get better." "Although we're not in the playoffs, I am very excited about this team," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "Night in, night out we go out and compete. This is a team that is going to be successful for years to come. This team's going to get back in the playoffs and make a few runs in the next few years." Laker forward Karl Malone twisted his ankle with seconds left in the first half and did not play thereafter. Malone left the Rose Garden under his own power and did not go to the hospital. His status for the opening game of the playoffs is uncertain.
