NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

The Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers took over the Western Conference lead going into the playoffs with one game to go.

Western Conference

2. x-New Orleans 0.5
3. x-Houston 1.0

5. x-San Antonio 1.5
6. x-Phoenix 2.5
7. x-Dallas 5.5

Kobe got the job done.

MVP candidate Kobe Bryant had 20 points, five rebounds and five assists before sitting out the fourth quarter, and the Lakers routed the defending NBA champion San Antonio Spurs 106-85 for their seventh win in eight games.

“It was a big game for us,” Bryant said. “It was another step in the right direction. Going into the playoffs is all about momentum. Now, we just have to take it up another notch once the playoffs start.”

If the Lakers beat the Kings in their last game they will assure themselves to be the Western Conference Champions. They have the tie breaker over New Orleans and Chris Paul.

The Lakers are playing excellent basketball right now as the San Antonio Spurs and Tim Duncan found out.

The Lakers also won the Pacific Division with the victory.

How strange to see the Boston Celtics on top of the East and the Los Angeles Lakers on top of the West. They have not met in the finals since 1987.

NFL Basketball special comment Winning the West has to help Kobe Bryant’s quest for MVP of the NBA.
