“And to think some said we wouldn’t make it,” a proud Kobe Bryant tweeted Wednesday night.
After a somewhat disappointing first half of the season, the Lakers finally solidified their spot in the NBA playoffs with a 99-95 overtime win against the Houston Rockets.
Believe it or not, but the Lakers aren’t even the lowest seed! With Utah’s loss on Wednesday, that places LA in the seventh-seed slot in the West.
No one was more proud than Bryant, who will be watching from the sidelines following a tear to his Achilles tendon.
Next up, the team will face the San Antonio Spurs during round one of the NBA playoffs. Go Lakers!
