The second semifinal between Los Angeles and Denver offered great drama.
The Lakers were down by one point with only two seconds left in the game.
Then the team got a throw-in from the baseline that would prove to be decisive in the match.
The ball ended up with Anthony Davis who, relatively undisturbed, had to shoot outside the three-point line.
The match bell rang when the ball was in the air and shortly afterwards it fell into the basket, a so-called buzzer beater.
The three-pointer meant 105-103 for the Lakers.
Before Davis was embraced by his teammates, he shouted "Kobe".
The Lakers players stretched their arms in the sky and rushed onto the field to celebrate.
Tonight's victory means that the Lakers have 2-0 in matches in the semifinal series in the best of seven.
