Kobe finally got some help from friends and didn’t have to score 40 points to win. Bryant scored 22 points as the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Denver Nuggets 103-94 and took a 3-2 lead in the series. Carmelo Anthony scored 31 but didn’t have anyone else aid him with the scoring. Kobe managed to perform THE highlight of the night, with a great alley oop dunk off Derek Fisher’s assist.
