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.
