The run forced the Lakers to take a timeout of their own, but it didn't do much good. Pau Gasol knocked down a free throw 43 seconds after the timeout, and LA didn't score again in the third quarter. When Paul Pierce connected on this layup despite a hard foul from Pau Gasol, he got a chance to cut the lead to single digits, and he didn't disappoint, knocking down the free throw. Eddie House then buried a three, and Ray Allen put in two free throws to cut the lead to four.
