Lakers End Preseason With Overtime Win, 105-102 Over Warriors

Ontario, CA (Sports Network) - Shannon Brown knocked down the tie-breaking three-pointer in overtime to lead the Los Angeles Lakers to a 105-102 come- from-behind victory over Golden State in the preseason finale for both teams.

Brown finished with 18 points while Kobe Bryant added 22 points and seven assists for the Lakers, who wrapped up their exhibition slate at 4-4.

Golden State coughed up a nine-point lead with two minutes to play in regulation, as the Lakers stormed back to tie and force the extra session.

Bryant hit four foul shots and a layup to make it 98-95 with 1:09 left before Brown's three-pointer knotted the score with 30 ticks left.

Monta Ellis led all scorers with 41 while Reggie Williams chipped in 27 points and eight assists for the Warriors, who finished their regular season tuneups at 3-5.

David Lee added 16 points and 14 rebounds for the visitors, who received only six points from the five players who came off the bench.

Brown snapped a 100-100 tie with his jumper off a feed from Matt Barnes with 1:19 to go in overtime. A Williams jumper sliced the lead to one with 33.2 ticks remaining, but Ron Artest countered with a jump shot 22 seconds later to make it a three-point game. Williams missed a jump shot with five seconds left to seal the win for the hosts.

Williams missed a jumper in the waning seconds.

The Lakers open defense of their back-to-back crowns at home on Tuesday against Houston while the Warriors begin their 2010-11 campaign Wednesday by hosting the Rockets.

Lakers End Preseason Against Warriors In Ontario

The Los Angeles Lakers end their preseason tonight, as they face the Golden State Warriors at Citizens Business Bank in Ontario. The Lakers this preseason will have played in London, Barcelona, Las Vegas, Anaheim, San Diego, and Ontario. The Lakers will end up wearing the home gold uniforms in all eight games, even though they have played only two games at Staples Center.

The Lakers defeated the Warriors 120-99 last night in San Diego, and are 14-10 in preseason games against the Warriors, dating back to 1982. The Lakers have won the last nine regular season contests against Golden State, dating back to 2008.

Both teams are 3-4 this preseason. Last night's game in San Diego was a close affair late in the third quarter, but the Lakers stretched to a 10-point lead at the end of the third quarter. Then, they opened the fourth quarter with a 28-10 run to put the game away.

Kobe Bryant missed last night's game as a precaution, so he wouldn't play in back-to-back nights in the preseason while recovering from right knee surgery. Bryant will play in tonight's preseason finale.

Luke Walton played his first preseason game last night after sitting with a strained right hamstring. He played 11 minutes, and had five points and two assists. Sasha Vujacic, who missed three games with a concussion, played 15 minutes last night and scored nine points on 4-of-5 shooting.

Stephen Curry sprained his right ankle in Thursday's game, and is listed as day-to-day.

Tonight's 7 p.m. PDT game will be televised on KCAL and ESPN.
