Lakers Drop 46 In Fourth Quarter, Defeat Warriors, 115-110

Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Kobe Bryant scored 17 of his 39 points in the fourth quarter, and the Los Angeles Lakers followed one of the easiest wins in franchise history with one of their toughest tests of the season. The Lakers scratched out a 115-110 victory over Golden State on Wednesday, coming back from a 14-point deficit in the first half and withstanding a barrage of three-pointers at the end of the game to earn their sixth straight win. It came one night after Los Angeles beat Cleveland, 112-57, to set a regular- season team record for fewest points by an opponent.

Pau Gasol added 24 points and 11 rebounds in this one and Lamar Odom had 20 points and nine rebounds off the bench in the win. Andrew Bynum added 11 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks for the Lakers, who have won six straight games.

Monta Ellis played the whole game and scored 38 points to lead the Warriors, who have lost four of their last six games. Dorell Wright had 27 points, seven rebounds, and four assists in defeat. The Lakers return home to host New Jersey on Friday night at Staples Center.
