A heroic save from Ron Artest have pushed the Los Angeles Lakers to lead the Western Conference Finals to lead one game, 3-2.

It was a tough loss for Steve Nash and the rest of the Suns who were just in time to tie the game and were looking to beat the Lakers in overtime.

The Lakers led as much as 17 points. But the Suns caught up with lead in the last quarter and tied the score 101-101 with less than 10 seconds left remaining after Jason Richardson sinks a three after a failed tries from Steve Nash. The Lakers call a time out with 3 seconds left, and you already Kobe was going to try save the Lakers. But Kobe’s three a point try came to too short from the ring, and a Laker was at the right spot to pick up the huge miss. Ron Artest catches the ball and just shot it, almost looking like a follow-up, and the ball hits the board and goes in almost at the same time the buzzer went off to signal the end of the game.

Lakers won 103-101.
