Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Brian Cook's 3-point shooting put the Los Angeles Lakers ahead. Kobe Bryant's defense preserved the win. Cook made 5-of-6 3-pointers en route to a career-high 25 points and Bryant blocked a dunk by Michael Redd late in the game as the Lakers posted a 95-90 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. Los Angeles has beaten Milwaukee in eight consecutive meetings since November 27, 2001. Cook came off the bench and drained 10-of-14 shots overall, including a 3-pointer with 1:35 remaining to give the Lakers an 89-86 lead. "It's coming along," Cook said. "I'm a shooter. I always have been. I always think the next one's going in. I've been shooting the ball all season long, but I'm a team guy. I don't care about scoring. I just want to help the team win, play defense and those things." The Lakers kept their lead thanks to Bryant, who blocked what looked to be an uncontested dunk by Redd with 23 seconds remaining, keeping the score 92-88. Last week in Los Angeles, Bryant limited Redd to six points. "I knew he had a layup (and if I fouled him), he'd only get two from the line and it'd be a two-point game," Bryant said. "I just sized him up and decided to make a play on it. "I take pride in my defense. One of my goals is to get Defensive Player of the Year." Lakers coach Rudy Tomjanovich was impressed with Bryant's block. "About a month ago, Kobe made a play on a fast break that was one of the best plays I had ever seen," he said. "Today, the guy topped it. That was the best play I've seen. He took a lot of pride in playing Michael Redd." A second-year forward, Cook erupted with three 3-pointers in the second quarter, including one with 5:11 remaining that capped a 19-7 run and gave the Lakers a 45-31 advantage. "He (Cook) could shoot last year, too," Bryant said. "He just didn't have the range. He's worked hard and he's come out firing. He's a tremendous shooter." Bryant missed his last eight shots and finished with 20 points and a season-high 11 assists. "He was real conscious of hitting open people, very unselfish," Tomjanovich said. "He's a winner. He did what he had to do to get us a win." "The biggest difference was Brian Cook just shot the ball really well tonight," Milwaukee coach Terry Porter said. "He got into a groove early on and then we started rotating to him, had to go to a zone, had to go kind of small. He was really the biggest difference." The Bucks rallied behind Desmond Mason, who scored 14 of his 32 points in the third quarter. It was his most points since being acquired from Seattle in February 2003. "From an individual standpoint, I was trying to stay aggressive on both ends of the floor," Mason said. "I was trying to make sure I got my hands on lots of balls on the defensive end, and on the offensive end, coach was giving me the opportunity to play in some one-on-one situations." Milwaukee's Maurice Williams had a career-high 21 points and 11 assists for his second consecutive double-double and fourth overall.
