The ‘Machine’ Engineers a Lakers Victory

Posted by Admin in Cavs, Kobe, Lakers

Nearly everyone at Staples Center was on edge. Everyone except the ‘Machine’. Sasha Vujacic was unfazed by Boston’s tight defense, letting his jumper rip whenever he got space. Even after Kobe BRyant yells at him for missing a jumper, he jacked up another one play later. The Machine made 7-of-10 from the field, including 3-of-5 on 3-pointers, and scored 20 points off the bench in the Lakers’ 87-81 Game 3 victory.

Kobe Bryant on Sasha after the game:
“The Machine played like a machine,” Bryant said. “He’s gotten better as the season has gone on, not just being a spot-up shooter but being able to put the ball on the floor one or two bounces and taking a step back. He’s really developed into a well-rounded scorer.”
