Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Kobe Bryant let everybody know that the Lakers are still the best team in Tinseltown. Bryant scored 37 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and Corey Maggette's potential game-tying shot at the buzzer rimmed out as the Lakers continued to dominate the crosstown Clippers, 89-87. After playing every minute of the first three quarters, Bryant was on the bench at the start of the fourth period and watched Bobby Simmons score seven of his 15 points in an 8-0 run that put the Clippers ahead, 79-75, with 8:48 remaining. "I think it is a growing process when I come off the floor," Bryant said. "I have full confidence in our team to go out there and perform." Bryant came off the bench and hit back-to-back jumpers over Simmons to tie it and added a 3-pointer in a 9-1 spurt that gave the Lakers an 84-80 lead with five minutes left. Kerry Kittles' driving layup cut the deficit to 89-87 with 1 1/2 minutes to play, and after Bryant missed a long jumper with 11 seconds remaining, the Clippers had a chance to send the contest into overtime. Maggette dribbled across the lane and threw up a running one-hander off the glass that went halfway down before bouncing out as time expired. "That's a go-to play and it was there," Maggette said. "I hit the angle and it came out. That's a tough one. I'm glad coach had confidence in me but we just fell short." "Corey had a good look and it looked like it was going in," Bryant said. "Fortunately for us it rattled around and came out." The Clippers (11-8) entered the contest with their best start in over a decade but lost for the second time to the Lakers. The Lakers have won 26 of the last 29 matchups with their intracity rivals, including nine of 11 as the road team at the Staples Center. "They are a good team," Former Clipper Lamar Odom said. "They compete. And yeah, you could call it a rivalry. It's always going to be a game. They have a lot of athletes and they are well coached." Maggette scored 27 points and Mikki Moore, starting for the suspended Elton Brand, had 18 and a career-high 14 rebounds for the Clippers. "Mikki Moore played well," Lakers coach Rudy Tomjanovich said. "He is a good player and he plays with a lot of intensity. He really got to the boards tonight." Kittles, who was acquired from the New Jersey Nets in the offseason, added 15 points in his return to the Clippers' lineup after recovering from a sore right knee. "It's going to take a while to adjust to playing with these guys," Kittles said. "I have to find my niche within the team. But overall it's still the game of basketball and if I'm healthy I should be able to go out there and do some positive things." Odom scored eight of his 19 points in the third quarter to give the Lakers a 73-70 advantage heading into the final period. Bryant and Odom combined to score 29 of the Lakers' 36 points in the second half. "We finished the game off," said Odom, who also had 12 rebounds. "If they had come down and hit a three we'd be in here talking about how we lost the game. That last shot looked like it was in but he was falling back and it had a lot of english which must have taken it off the rim."
