Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- In a game that featured spectacular performances from superstars Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal, it took a veteran reserve to bail the Los Angeles Lakers out of what could have been an inexcusable defeat.

Robert Horry scored all six of his points in overtime as the Lakers survived a furious fourth-quarter comeback by the Toronto Raptors and escaped with a 104-101 victory.

Los Angeles held an 89-74 lead in the fourth quarter but Vince Carter and Antonio Davis spearheaded a 17-2 run over the final 4:53 to tie the game and force overtime.

Alvin Williams gave Toronto a 95-93 lead with 3:04 left but O'Neal, who missed two crucial free throws late in regulation and earlier in overtime, scored on an alley-oop with 2:32 left to start a 6-0 run. Horry's driving layup with 1:19 to play allowed the Lakers to build a 99-95 advantage.

"(Charles) Oakley wasn't really playing me," Horry said. "I thought, let's try this (driving layup), and it worked. Of course, we never should have let it get to this point."

A layup by Kevin Willis with 55 seconds left got the Raptors within 99-97, but Horry sank two free throws with 33 seconds remaining.

An 18-foot jumper by Willis cut the Lakers' lead to 101-99 with 19 seconds to play. Bryant scored the last of his 40 points on two free throws but Oakley's long jumper got the Raptors within 103-101 with 4.8 seconds to go.

After Brian Shaw made 1-of-2 free throws with four seconds left, Carter missed an off-balance 3-pointer as time expired.

"A loss is a loss," Carter said. "The defense has been fine. It's the mental lapses that have been killing us. We have to understand what needs to be done and be consistent about getting it done."

Bryant was 14-of-29 from the field, made all 11 free throws and grabbed seven rebounds. O'Neal went 12-of-17 from the field and scored 28 points in his first game back after missing Friday's contest to receive his bachelor of arts degree from Louisiana State.

Carter scored 31 points on just 10-of-32 shooting and grabbed 12 rebounds. Davis contributed 14 points and 16 rebounds and Oakley added 12 points and a season-high 18 rebounds for the Raptors, who dropped their second straight game.

The Lakers entered the fourth quarter with a 76-64 lead and took their largest advantage at 89-74 on a 22-footer by Bryant from the right sideline with 4:53 to play.

But Davis started the Raptors' late surge with a jumper and scored eight of Toronto's last 17 fourth-quarter points.

Williams made two free throws with 59 seconds left to cut the Lakers' lead to 91-89. After misses by Bryant and Carter on consecutive possessions, O'Neal was fouled by Davis but continued his poor free-throw shooting by missing both attempts with 12 seconds remaining.

"When they went on their 17-2 run we were just shooting jumpers and got away from our inside game, which was working for us," said O'Neal, whose team missed eight of its last nine shots over the final 4:53.

Carter, who drained a 3-pointer during Toronto's fourth-quarter comeback, was fouled by O'Neal on the ensuing possession and sank both free throws with 4.6 seconds to play to tie the game at 91.

Bryant had his potential game-winning jumper partially blocked by Carter as the buzzer sounded.

"Toronto had quite a run at the end," Los Angeles coach Phil Jackson said. "We either had tired legs or couldn't hit free throws. You have to give Toronto credit for what they had to do to come back."

The Lakers led 25-23 after the first quarter as Bryant went 6-of-11 from the field and scored 13 points.

O'Neal, who made all six of his shots in the first half, scored nine of his 13 points in the second quarter as Los Angeles built a 10-point lead and entered halftime with a 53-49 advantage.

Los Angeles shot 46 percent (38-of-83) from the field, but made just 24-of-34 free throws as O'Neal went 4-of-11 from the line.

"Shaq gets down about the free throws, but he works hard and we will continue trying to get the ball to him," Bryant said.

The Raptors outrebounded Los Angeles, 61-45, but shot 35 percent (36-of-103), including 7-of-22 from 3-point range.
