10:46 AM ET 03.10 | Coach Mike D'Antoni tried to give his team the best chance to win Friday night in a close overtime battle against the Toronto Raptors. One of his choices was to keep Dwight Howard on the floor when the Lakers were behind with little time left -- needing a three-pointer to stay in the game. Both Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash came through for the Lakers, who won a nail-biter in overtime, 118-116. Some coaches might have pulled Howard off the court to give the Lakers four or five shooters. Instead, D'Antoni said he'll live and die with Howard on the floor.

Didn't Phil pull Shaq, once in a while in crunch time, because Shaq couldn't shoot free throws????
