Kentavious-Caldwell Pope made huge plays in the last two minutes of Game 4 of the Finals series between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat.
Frank Vogel was delighted with the Lakers guard/forward’s impact, claiming it takes ‘guts’ to make those shots in the last five minutes of the game.
Pope had five huge points in crunch time, hitting the three at the 2:58 mark and then he beat Duncan Robinson off the dribble for a layup at the 2:02 mark, putting the Lakers up seven.
The 3-and-D wing finished the game with 15 points, five assists and three rebounds to help the Lakers on both ends of the floor.
Game 5 of the series between Frank Vogel’s team and the Heat is on Friday.
