Derek Fisher and Kobe Bryant made clutch back to back 3 pointers late in the 4th quarter and the Los Angeles Lakers survived two last second shot attempts by the Utah Jazz to hold on to a 111-110 win.  The Lakers lead the Western Conference Semi-final series 3 games to 0 and can clinch a spot in the Western Conference Finals with a win on Monday night in Utah.

After a timeout with 4 seconds left, Deron Williams’ shot from the top of the key bounced off the rim. Wesley Matthews had a put back tip in attempt at the buzzer but the ball rolled off the rim, sending the Lakers bench into celebration.
