As impressive as his final shotwas, it was nothing compared to the one at the end of the fourthquarter. Bryant, tightly defended by Ruben Patterson, twisted andturned to get himself enough room to launch an off-balance fling as hefell to his right.

"The win wasn't important for me, it was important for the team," Jackson said. "But getting the win is twice as nice."

Bryant, who scored eight of his 33 points in overtime, swished home thegame-winner, then ran with clenched fist to the other end of the court,chest-bumping with teammate Devean George to celebrate his biggest shotof this very young season.

Why do the Lakers need all these GW's? With those three giants they have holding down the middle the starters should be resting by the fourth like the old Bulls did...
