Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers had too much down the stretch for the road-weary Chicago Bulls. Kobe Bryant led five players in double figures with 29 points and keyed a late run as the Lakers posted a 102-93 victory over the Bulls, who are winless in eight games this season. Los Angeles nearly lost a big lead against one of two teams in the league without a win. But Bryant, who fell three assists shy of a triple-double, scored seven points in the final 2:41 to highlight an 18-9 run. Bryant's only 3-pointer of the game, with 60 seconds left, beat the shot-clock buzzer and capped the closing surge, pushing the Lakers' lead to 99-89. "I always believe that whatever happens the first 3 1/2 quarters, that towards the end of the game when there are big shots, I'm going to make them no matter what," Bryant said. Los Angeles' All-Star guard struggled from the line (8-of-17), however, and turned the ball over nine times. The rest of the starters picked him up early. Chris Mihm scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. His hook in the lane with 5:12 left gave the Lakers the lead for good, 86-84. Caron Butler scored 21 points, Chucky Atkins 14 and Lamar Odom 12. "I knew there were opportunities for me," Mihm said. "I wanted that and I got my hook shot so all was good." Mihm, Bryant and Odom combined for 32 rebounds, matching the Bulls' team total. Nineteen were on the offensive end, including seven by Mihm. "We did a great job on the boards and that gradually wore them down," Mihm said. "This is a game we feel we should have won," Chicago coach Scott Skiles. "You can't give up 19 offensive rebounds and still win." Los Angeles' bench provided just seven points. Kirk Hinrich and rookie Luol Deng led the Bull's second-half charge. Hinrich scored 24 points and dished out 12 assists. Deng, just 19-years-old, quickly is emerging as one of Chicago's top players and led a strong performance by the Bulls' bench with 21 points. "You can't explain (how it feels to be 0-8)," Hinrich said. "It's about as frustrating as it gets. We need a win for the psyche of this team. I think a win would help tremendously. "The game was very winnable. They made plays down the stretch. Kobe, obviously the one he threw in from 40 feet, or whatever, was the dagger." After making a 22-6 run to reclaim the lead early in the fourth, Chicago had little left down the stretch and fell within one loss of matching the worst start in franchise history. The Bulls, who lost their first nine games of the 1967-68 season, are four games into a seven-game road trip - their longest of the season. "You can't help but feel discouraged," Skiles said. "But overall, I would say they're still working hard and paying attention." "They're new with each other," Butler said. "Once they get into a system and the chemistry starts rolling and they're with each other, they're gonna be a scary team to watch."
