Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Lakers will take it. Former Laker Lindsey Hunter missed two free throws with 2.4 seconds left in overtime, then was ruled out of bounds on the final play as the Toronto Raptors were beaten by struggling Los Angeles, 109-107. The Lakers, who capped a 1-3 road trip and improved to just 3-13 away from home, took a 108-107 lead on a steal and layup by Kobe Bryant after he intercepted a pass from Morris Peterson to Alvin Williams. After Williams missed a leaner in the paint, Robert Horry made 1-of-2 free throws with 8.2 seconds to play, giving Toronto another chance. Hunter drove the lane and was knocked to the ground by Shaquille O'Neal as the center blocked his shot with 2.4 seconds left. Hunter, who was slow to get up from the court, missed the first free throw and intentionally missed the second. But the ball went out of bounds off Los Angeles, giving the Raptors another opportunity. "I thought I made it, but it just bounced out," Hunter said of his first attempt. "It was a hard foul by Shaquille, but I've still got to knock that down." Hunter stepped on the sideline while trying to receive the inbounds pass with 0.9 seconds left, and the Lakers ran out the clock. "I thought (Brian Shaw) fouled me, but there was a lot of confusion," Hunter said. "I should've hit the free throws and we wouldn't have been in that situation. I blame myself." O'Neal scored 31 points and grabbed 15 rebounds and Bryant also had 31 points for Los Angeles, which shot 53 percent (41-of-77) en route to just its second victory in seven games. The Lakers are just 11-18 overall and one-half game ahead of last-place Golden State in the Pacific Division. "Nobody said it was going to be easy," Bryant said. "We're playing in spurts. We have good, solid, high-energy moments and then we go into a period where we struggle. It's such a long season, we're just off to a slow start. We got the monkey off our back tonight." Peterson scored 27 points, Hunter added 17 and Williams 16 for Toronto, which has lost three in a row and seven of eight. The Lakers led, 101-96, after Derek Fisher made a jumper with 1:11 remaining in regulation. But Williams got Toronto within 102-100 on a jumper with 40 seconds to play and, after Jerome Williams blocked Bryant with 20 seconds left and grabbed the rebound, the Raptors called timeout to set up a final play. Peterson nailed a jumper from the right corner with 9.2 seconds remaining, but the referees signaled it was a two-pointer. Replays seemed to indicate that Peterson had both feet behind the line, prompting the Air Canada Centre crowd to chant, "Three, three!" "Everybody thought it was in (from 3-point range)," Peterson said. "I thought it was. I came off the screen and I made sure I was behind it. I guess I just missed it." Fisher missed a jumper from just inside the arc with one second to go, sending the game to overtime. Bryant scored 13 points in the first quarter to give the Lakers a 32-21 edge. The Raptors climbed within 54-45 at halftime and 79-74 after three quarters. "We don't begrudge any win right now," said Rick Fox, who scored 17 points for Los Angeles. "There's only been 11 of them. It's easy to judge us right now, but it's a long season. We've taken some due criticism and some undue criticism." The Lakers were outrebounded, 45-40, and had fewer points on the break (26-12) and on second chances (19-14). "We certainly threatened our fate again tonight by giving this team extra chances," Los Angeles coach Phil Jackson said. "It's very close to the prototype of the way we've been playing. Our reliance on Kobe and Shaq is what's bothering me. We had to pull this one out of the fire, basically."
