For nearly the last two decades, the Lakers' final shot has been drawn up for one player.
The Chicago Bulls might be desperately thin at point guard if the hamstring injury Kirk Hinrich suffered Monday night is serious.
Late in the fourth quarter, Pau Gasol decided to take over Monday’s tilt with the Bulls.
On two different occasions during Monday’s contest, the Bulls nearly handed the Lakers a win. Then, with less than a second remaining, they stole it right back.
Despite both teams missing their respective former MVPs, All Stars and team leaders, Monday night’s matchup between the Bulls and Lakers didn’t lack excitement.
