Tres ni Davis Mamba shot
Hindi maikakaila na malaki ang implyuwensya ni National Basketball Association (NBA) legend Kobe Bryant sa Los Angeles Lakers.
Kaya nang maibagahe ng Lakers ang Game 2 105-103 win sa Western Conference Finals nitong Lunes (Manila time) kontra Denver Nuggets, muling inalala ng koponan ang Hall of Famer na yumao sa helicopter crash nitong Enero.
Sa huling segundo ng labanan, ang game-winning three-pointer ni big man Anthony Davis ang sumagip sa Lakers para sa 2-0 leadf sa best-of-seven series.
“We want to embody what Kobe Bryant stood for and honor his memory,” lahad ni winning coach Frank Vogel sa post-game interview.
Dagdag pa niyang, “Obviously there’s certain games where we’re gonna feel it a little more than others, when we have that uniform on, I think we feel it more than others. That’s a shot Kobe Bryant would hit. So to me, AD coming off, flying through the wing like that, catch-and-shoot with the game on the line in the biggest moment of our season, nothing but net, that’s a Mamba shot.” (Janiel Abby Toralba)
