Nets Can’t Solve Lakers, Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant had 21 points and eight rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame the absences of Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace, and the loss of Pau Gasol to beat the Brooklyn Nets 92-83 on Tuesday night.

Antawn Jamison, starting for the suspended World Peace, made the go-ahead basket during a closing 14-3 run for the Lakers, who have won three straight and six of their last seven games.

Howard missed his third consecutive game with a torn labrum in his right shoulder and Gasol, his replacement, appeared to injure his right foot with a little more than 4 minutes remaining.

Brook Lopez capitalized on the Lakers’ center woes to finish with 30 points and 11 rebounds, but he was the Nets’ only offense down the stretch in their fourth loss in six games.
