The game may not have been pretty, but it was entertaining, and the Lakers escaped with a crucial win, putting an end to their three-game losing streak in the process.
Up by two points with 3.4 seconds remaining, Kobe Bryant stepped to the line and hit his first free throw, but missed the second one short. He then inexplicably held his follow-through position for an extended amount of time, which allowed Ricky Rubio to gather the rebound – right in front of a statuesque Bryant – uncontested.
