Lakers 7-7 at Wizards 5-8
Let’s start 8-8 and Nene gets a steal off of Jordan Hill for the Wizards and he takes this coast to coast and finishes with a dunk! Then John Wall slams down a dunk for the Wiz! 42-41 Lakers in the lead now but Wall makes the 360 DUNK! And the Wizards take the lead! 107-106 Wizards now but the Lakers Jordan Farmar passes it down low to Pau Gasol who spins around the defender and lays it in for the score and that puts the Lakers up 1 late in the 4th quarter. We’re clutch time, crunch time, whatever you want to call it and John Wall makes a stepback J to put the Wizards up 1! Then Wall passes to Nene who goes up and under the defender and drains the layup to put DC up 3. 113-108 Wizards now but they leave Gasol open in the paint, and you know he’s gonna make that 99.9% of the time! And he does, That cuts the lead from 5 to 3. But then, 114-111 now, last chance for the Lakers, and Nick Young, for three…DOESN’T GO! WIZARDS WIN 116-111!
