After transition, the Lakers set the offense. Chris Mihm (31) sprints to the left side of the lane while Bryant (8) cuts to the strongside block. Laron Profit (9) passes to Lamar Odom (7) and makes a shallow cut to the right corner.

The Lakers are now set in the triangle, where spacing is key. Bryant, who is a threat from either the perimeter or the post, sets up on the block. Odom passes to Profit.

Bryant seals the defender who tries to prevent No. 8 from catching the ball. Profit throws a lob to Bryant, who spins, makes the catch and finishes.
