The Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel was delighted with his team winning Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals over the Denver Nuggets.

It took Anthony Davis to hit a buzzer-beating three-pointer to seal the win for the Purple & Gold. Vogel saw similarities between AD’s shot and those of the late Kobe Bryant.

“That was nothing but a good old fashioned Western Conference playoffs slug fest culminating in what you can only call ‘Mamba shot.’ That was Mamba right there. Mamba Mentality,” Vogel said to his players.

“Big-time shot AD. We still got work to do this is a really good basketball team. Let’s keep our heads down focused on the work. One step at a time.”
