Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Never count out a champion.

Although he is still only 22 years old, Kobe Bryant has what it takes to hit the big shot and proved it again with a pair of clutch jumpers that lifted the Los Angeles Lakers to a stirring 112-110 overtime victory over the Sacramento Kings.

Bryant scored 31 points -- his fourth consecutive 30-point game -- but it was when the Lakers needed him most that the All-Star guard came up biggest.

Trailing 102-99 with 18 seconds remaining in regulation after Peja Stojakovic's driving layup, the Lakers appeared out of chances when Brian Shaw missed a 25-footer. But the rebound went to Robert Horry, who passed it back to Shaw.

"We needed to get one rebound at the end (of regulation) and we didn't get it," Kings coach Rick Adelman said.

Bryant stood unguarded at the top of the arc, quickly catching Shaw's pass and drilling a 3-pointer to forge a 102-102 tie with 2.3 ticks remaining. Stojakovic fired up a 3-pointer at the buzzer but the ball rimmed out and the Kings were forced into their third overtime of the season.

"Kobe made the shot at the end and tied the game in regulation, but our guys played hard and played well," Adelman said.

Bryant, who knocked down several huge shots in the Lakers' run to the NBA championship last season, took his game to another level in overtime, scoring eight of Los Angeles' 10 points.

With Sacramento intent on not letting superstar center Shaquille O'Neal beat them, Bryant took control. After a 3-pointer by Stojakovic put the Kings in front, 106-103, he hit a pair of free throws, an acrobatic 10-footer in the lane and put Los Angeles in front for good, 110-108, with yet another dagger, a 21-footer from the left sideline with 24 seconds left.

Stojakovic missed a potential tying four-footer on the ensuing trip and Bryant sealed the win by burying two from the line with four seconds to play.

"We had to try to contain Peja, try to reel in Christie," Bryant said. "And I think we did a decent job of that (in overtime)."

"This is a tough loss. I'm proud of the team, they played their tails off," Adelman said.

Bryant was 12-of-12 from the line and grabbed 10 rebounds for the Lakers, who completed their first three-game winning streak of the young season. They were playing their first overtime game.

O'Neal had 33 points and 16 rebounds for Los Angeles, which needed five games to eliminate the feisty Kings in the first round of the playoffs last season.

Doug Christie scored a season-high 32 points and Stojakovic had 29 and a career-high 17 rebounds for Sacramento, which was without injured power forward Chris Webber and lost point guard Jason Williams to an ankle injury early in the third quarter.

The Kings had a five-game winning streak snapped.

"The Lakers are a tough team to beat," Stojakovic admitted. "They're the champions. We had the game in our hand and then made a couple of mistakes. It was a hard game playing without Webber and only having three big guys."

Isaiah Rider scored 14 points and Brian Shaw added 11 for Los Angeles, which shot 49 percent (41-of-83) and held a 46-44 rebounding edge. O'Neal made 16-of-22 shots but was just 1-of-8 form the line as Sacramento began fouling him every time he touched the ball in the paint down the stretch and in overtime.

Christie made half his 22 shots, all six free throws and had five steals in 48 minutes. Stojakovic, who has become the Kings' go-to guy during Webber's two-game absence, went 10-of-26 from the floor and committed just one turnover in 51 minutes.

Jon Barry scored 14 points and Williams added 11 before his injury for the Kings, who shot 44 percent (40-of-91) and scored 19 points off turnovers.

Christie's jumper with 9:05 remaining in regulation gave the Kings their biggest lead at 91-78. But Los Angeles responded with a 10-0 run, fueled by five points from Shaw and a 3-pointer by Rider that cut the deficit to 91-88 with seven minutes left.

Christie hit two free throws and Stojakovic drilled a 23-footer but the Lakers would not go away. O'Neal hit a short turnaround, Bryant made six straight free throws and Rider sank a 23-footer from the right sideline that got Los Angeles within 100-99 with 40 seconds left.

Stojakovic's drove past Horry for what appeared to be the clinching basket with 18 seconds left but Bryant forced overtime with his 25-footer.

"We feel like we lost the game because we had a chance to win it," Sacramento guard Bobby Jackson said. "If we had rebounded and that's what really hurt us, we may have been able to pull it out."
