2010 – With a 111-96 Los Angeles Lakers victory over the Utah Jazz in Game 4, the eventual champion Lakers swept their first-round series. Pau Gasol scored a game-high 33 points en route to the victory. Kobe Bryant also put up 32 points. Lamar Odom had an impressive plus/minus of positive 30 for Lakers as well.
Bryant and Gasol are still with the Lakers, but have not made it to the NBA Finals since 2010. During the 2013-14 season, Los Angeles played at its highest pace since 1988-89 (according to Basketball-Reference). If Bryant plays the majority of the upcoming season, the pace should not be as high.
