Game 7: Lakers 83, Celtics 79 

GameTracker | Box Score | Full Play-by-Play | Shot Chart



















Purple and gold confetti raining down upon him, Kobe Bryant hopped up on the scorer's table, shook his fists and extended five fingers.

When he hopped down, Boston's legendary Hall of Fame center Bill Russell was waiting to shake his hand.

A Game 7 classic - and this time, it finally went the Lakers' way.

Bryant, the finals MVP, scored 23 points despite 6-of-24 shooting, and the Lakers won their 16th NBA championship Thursday night, dramatically rallying from a fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Celtics 83-79 in Game 7 of the NBA finals. Full Recap

NBA Rewind: Hot Shots / Cold Shots

Game 6 was less about the Lakers hot shooting and more about the Celtics' frozen fingers. Boston couldn't get solid offensive production from any of the stars, and, this time, X-factor Rajon Rondo missed the mark.
