Problem is here, people are forgetting what D12 had done in 1st quarter and only remembering Kobe's 4th quarter. Even in foul trouble, D12 still had 3 better quarters than Kobe. But he only deserves zero here.
I don't forget anything, my Zero wasn't Dwight in terms of the whole game, it was his effort in the 2nd half.
I do admit that maybe I should put Kobe's first 3 quarters in there as well.
So, my H/Z would be:
H: Pau - Kobe's 4th Q
Z: Dwight's 2nd half effort - Kobe's performance through the first 3 quarters
I'd add Clark but I think his D on Vasquez was very important in the 2nd half. He was missing shots and had a few fouls, but D was the key to this game, and he provided it to close it out.
