The Los Angeles Lakers jumped out to an early lead in the second overtime, but the Suns fought back yet again to close the deficit and set up another crazy finish to the period. Phoenix made a 7-1 run over the final minute and a half to not only tie the game, but jump into the lead with time running out.
Channing Frye buried a three on a scramble play with a minute to go, coming up big in the clutch to put the Suns up two. Kobe Bryant drove into a triple-team on the other end of the floor, jacking up a contested lay-in that never had a chance.
Kobe Bryant found himself floating in the air out of bounds before finding Pau Gasol wide open in the lane. Gasol was fouled attempting a lay-in and headed to line the line a chance to tie. He hit both free throws, leveling the score at 130 with 2.5 seconds to go.
Grant Hill couldn’t get a shot off and the Suns and Lakers are heading to a third overtime tied at 130.
