Lakers vs. 76ers results: Kobe Bryant carries Los Angeles to 111-98 victory

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Kobe Bryant was the leading scorer in the box score for the fifth straight game Sunday as the Lakers cruised to a 111-98 victory in Philadelphia.

The Los Angeles Lakers capped off their four-game road trip with an easy 111-98 win against the Philadelphia 76ers Sunday.

Kobe Bryant broke the 30-point barrier for the sixth consecutive game, finishing with 34 points, six assists and four rebounds, but the Lakers also benefited from the some surprising performances from Chris Duhon (14 points, four assists), Jodie Meeks (12 points, four steals) and Darius Morris (career-high 15 points). The trio also combined to drain nine of the Lakers 14 three-pointers on the evening.

With the Lakers also earning a 102-96 victory in Washington Friday, the team has now won two in a row for the first time in over a month. The Lakers' last winning streak came from Nov. 16-20 when they strung together three victories against the Suns, Rockets and Nets.

The Lakers will now be treated to an off-day Monday with their next game set for Tuesday against the Charlotte Bobcats in the Staples Center.
