LOS ANGELES, CA  From CNNSi (By: Tom Pace, Talk of the Town) BREAKING NBA NEWS: 5-30-08  Call them "The Little Team That Could." Powered down the stretch by the shooting of Kobe Bryant, the Los Angeles Lakers finally put away the San Antonio Spurs, 100-92, Thursday night on their home court in the Staples Center.

The Lakers celebrated the Western Conference championship before their adoring fans, but not too hard, according to CNNSi. They've got one more goal to reach before the real excitement begins.

Kobe Bryant scored 17 of his 39 points in the fourth quarter, and the Lakers rallied from an early 17-point deficit to beat the defending NBA champion San Antonio Spurs 100-92 on Thursday night and win the conference finals in five games.

They get a week off before opening the NBA finals next Thursday night at Boston or Detroit. The Celtics lead the Eastern Conference finals 3-2 with Game 6 on Friday night in Detroit.

''I think it is a tremendous accomplishment,'' Bryant said. ''I think the West is extremely tough. We're all extremely excited and proud about it. Now, it's time to go on and see if we can't finish it off.''
