Lakers Vs. Hornets Final Score: L.A. Comes From Behind To Win, 88-85

It was one of Kobe Bryant's worst performances in recent memeory, but the Los Angeles Lakers still needed a clutch shot from the superstar to help seal a win over the visiting New Orleans Hornets.

The Lakers fell behind after halftime and required a big fourth quarter and missed final shot to pull off the 88-85 victory. Bryant did not sink a shot or score a point until the final seven minutes of the game. He ended up with 11 points and five assists, going 3-for-21 from the floor, including just 1-for-8 from three-point range. The one three-pointer he converted ended up being the difference in the game, putting the Lakers ahead with just 0:20 left in regulation.

Pau Gasol led the way for the Lakers in this one, finishing with 21 points and 11 rebounds.
