Game 3 - Lakers 96, 76ers 91
Despite Shaquille O'Neal fouling out with more than two minutes left, the Lakers were able take over down the stretch thanks to the heroics of Robert Horry. The Lakers forward scored 12 points in the fourth quarter, including a key three-pointer with 47 seconds left, to give the Lakers a 2-1 series lead.
O'Neal, Horry and Kobe Bryant combined for 77 of the Lakers 96 points. Bryant had 16 of his 32 points in the second quarter, when the Lakers took the lead for good. O'Neal finished with 30 points and 12 rebounds, and after the game was highly critical of the defensive style of 76ers center Dikembe Mutombo, who he claimed was flopping.
Allen Iverson scored 14 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter to help the 76ers cut into a deficit, but could never get Philadelphia over the top. Mutombo added 23 points and 12 rebounds.
