Video: Lakers Top 10 Playoff Plays

The NBA put together a video highlight package (above) of some of L.A.’s best postseason plays:

10) Pau Gasol’s facial off Kobe Bryant’s bounce pass on Phoenix’s Lou Amundson in Game 3 of the Western Finals.

9) Gasol and Lamar Odom swat back-to-back Carlos Boozer layup attempts in Game 1 of the Western Semi’s.

8) Odom strips Suns PG Steve Nash, and feeds Bryant for a breakaway dunk in Game 1 vs. Phoenix as L.A. ran away to victory.

7) Bryant swats Jazz guard Wesley Matthews and feeds Shannon Brown for a transition jam, sealing Game 2 against Utah at STAPLES Center.

6) Gasol tosses a no-look bounce pass to a cutting Kobe for an and-1 layup late in Game 1 against Phoenix.

5) Brown violated Phoenix air space while flying in for a two-handed put-back slam of Andrew Bynum’s missed free throw in Game 3 at Phoenix.

4) Brown was way, way up in the air again, hammering home a one-handed alley-oop from Gasol in Game 6 of the Finals against Boston to put L.A. up by 20 halfway through the third quarter.

3) With L.A. down 94-93 in Game 6 against Oklahoma City, Bryant narrowly missed a fadeaway J, but Gasol was there to tip the ball in and win the first round series for the Lakers.

2) Ron Artest charged past Suns forward Jason Richardson to a loose ball when Bryant air-balled a deep three-pointer and flung it off glass to win Game 5 of the Western Finals.

1) A medley of big plays in Game 7 of the Finals against Boston: an Artest strip of Ray Allen and subsequent layup; Fisher’s clutch game-tying three halfway through the fourth quarter
