GAME RECAP

Nick Van Exel had 30 points and 12 assists and Rick Fox added 20 points, including five straight in overtime, as the Los Angeles Lakers edged the Los Angeles Clippers, 118-114, for their fourth straight victory.

Eddie Jones also scored 20 points for the Lakers, who improved to 17-2 against Western Conference teams, including 9-0 at home, and have won eight of the last 10 meetings in the crosstown series.

"We dodged a cannonball, forget bullet," Lakers coach Del Harris said. "It was tough for the Clippers, but it would have been tough for us too. That was a typical Clipper game, they've played most of the good teams right down to the wire. But they basically find a way to lose."

Lorenzen Wright scored a career-high 32 points and grabbed 15 rebounds and Rodney Rogers added 21 points for the Clippers, who lost their fourth straight game and fell to 2-14 on the road.

"It wasn't like we weren't out there," Clippers coach Bill Fitch said. "In the fourth quarter you knew it was gonna come down to the last minutes. We're going to have to play stronger in the fourth quarter."

A basket by Wright gave the Clippers a 111-108 lead with 3:06 left in overtime before the Lakers rallied behind Fox. After Van Exel hit two free throws to cut the deficit to one, Fox buried a three-pointer to give the Lakers the lead for good at 113-111 with 2:03 to play. The Clippers missed on the other end and Fox got downcourt for a dunk and a 115-111 cushion with 1:24 to go.

Eric Piatkowski hit 3-of-4 from the line to cut the deficit to one point with 44 seconds left before Jones hit one to make it 116-114 with 21 seconds remaining. After Rogers missed inside, Fox grabbed the rebound and was fouled. He hit both free throws with 3.5 seconds left for the final margin.

The Clippers led for most of the game, grabbing the lead late in the first quarter and maintaining it until late in regulation. The Lakers finally went ahead on Kobe Bryant's floater in the lane with 1:15 to go -- their first lead since it was 22-21 with 3:21 left in the first period.

"You saw it in the third quarter, everybody just toughened it up," Jones said. "We got in the huddle and it was 'hey man, we can't lose this game. We won't lose this game. Let's go out and just get an effort right now.' And the guys went out and did it."

Rogers tied it with a six-footer with 22 seconds remaining and Van Exel missed a 12-footer to force overtime.

Elden Campbell recorded 18 points, 11 rebounds and six assists for the Lakers, who shot 48 percent (42-of-88) from the field. Bryant finished with 16 points.

Piatkowski had 20 points and 10 rebounds and Darrick Martin chipped in 18 points for the Clippers, who shot 48 percent (43-of-89). Rogers had nine assists.
