Kobe Bryant vs Antawn Jamison and the Golden State Warriors

Kobe was coming off a hot streak at the age of 21, scoring 3 straight 35+ point games coming off a 36 point game. The next game was the 2nd of a back to back, where the would go to Oakland to meet Golden State and their hot scorer - Antawn Jamison. Jamison came off a 51 point game against the Sonics.

In the beginning of the game, Kobe Bryant and Antawn Jamison both got off to great starts shooting at a high percentage. Kobe played consistently aggressive throughout the 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarters while Jamison would get many easy baskets in transition. However, the Lakers made a mental breakdown when a 104-94 lead would evaporate into a 107-107 tie. It would go down to a last second play.

This was another example of one of those games where Kobe gets doubled off the ball forcing him into a wild 28 foot three. Even at a young age of 21, Kobe was already feared by opposing teams. Can 82games.com's complete bogus claim of 7-33 and 15-55 on game winning shots, while calling him a ballhog for it, say otherwise? No. Which is why numbers like those will always be misleading(And Kobe has 10 GW's from 03-04 to 05-06, 24 GW's in his lifetime).

Ultimately, in overtime Kobe missed on another very tough 35 foot jumpshot leading to a Warriors win 125-122.
