May 27, 2010 - Los Angeles, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES - epa02176325 Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum (L) and guard Kobe Bryant (R) celebrate during the first half against the Phoenix Suns in game five of the NBA Western Conference Final in Los Angeles, California, USA, 27 May 2010. The Lakers and Suns are tide in a best of seven series two games all.

A lot was at stake against Philly this weekend for the Lake Show. The Lakers needed to prove that their min-slump was permanently behind them and they did that by putting the 76ers there two with a 102-98 win. Even with Andre Igudola out the Sixers still kept it close at Staples like it back at Game 1 of the 2001 NBA Finals. As the clock wound down however, Kobe took over. He tied the game up with just other a minute to play and as the buzzer rang out, Kobe his Kareem-esque 33 and his Lakers where on top. Kobe was "FEEEELIN YOOOU" but he wasn't the only Laker feeling it against Philadelphia. His Laker frontcourt brothers Gasol and Odom held the floor. Pau just missed another double, double of 20 and 10 as he notched 8 rebounds, while Odom resumed his sixth man of the year worthy position with 18 off the B team wood. Andrew Bynum almost hit a double, double-like Gasol-just a little bit different with 8 points and 15 boards. The NBA's final game of 2010, made it a good end to a great 2010 for Los Angeles. Now to start the new year the Lakers look to get back on happier terms against Memphis. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
