In-Game 4 of their first-round against the Portland Trail Blazers, the Lakers leaped out to a mid 24-8 lead while wearing the Black Mamba uniform. Kobe Bryant's impact on this Los Angeles Lakers season finisher run has been obvious from the beginning starting with the uniform, Bryant took part in curating, which was worn by the team during the game. The two numbers are what Bryant wore in his uniform for the Lakers. Embarked upon making it 3-0 in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals against the Denver Nuggets, the Lakers piled on another success in Mamba suit against the Houston Rockets.

Leading with just 2.1 seconds remaining, they returned to take the lead despite falling behind with 16 points, the Nuggets had different plans. That is when Anthony Davis’ sleeping Mamba within him awakened and nailed the match dominating in a buzzer-beating 3 points in his first season run as a Lakers.

Frank Vogel was gotten on camera telling his group that Davis' game-winning move was a Mamba shot and even developed that to correspondents during his post-game forum.

"We want to embody what Kobe Bryant stood for and honor his memory,"

"Obviously there's certain games where we're gonna feel it a little more than others, when we have that uniform on, I think we feel it more than others. That's a shot Kobe Bryant would hit. So to me, AD coming off, flying through the wing like that, catch-and-shoot with the game on the line in the biggest moment of our season, nothing but net, that's a Mamba shot."

Vogel said.

To consistently win as many titles as they can is Bryant's definitive objective. A huge thanks to Davis, the Lakers is now six wins from achieving that as of today.
