Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers may have some fight left. But the Seattle SuperSonics are showing little punch down the stretch. Bryant scored 42 points and Caron Butler matched a season high with 31 to lead the Lakers to a surprisingly easy 117-94 victory over the SuperSonics. Los Angeles, which already has been eliminated from playoff contention, snapped a five-game losing streak and won for just the second time in its last 15 games. The Lakers also salvaged the finale of the four-game season series with the Sonics, who have lost three straight and squandered another chance to clinch the Northwest Division. "I'm just proud of our guys, we are out of the playoffs and have been on a losing streak," Los Angeles interim coach Frank Hamblen. "We are playing a team that has opportunity to clinch their division, we were on the road and we played last night. I'm real proud of these guys." Bryant returned from a one-game layoff to post a triple-double in a loss to Houston on Thursday, but made just 4-of-19 shots. Playing with a wrap on the right shin that caused him to miss the game earlier this week, he was sharp in this one. The star made 7-of-11 3-pointers and capped the first half with a long shot from the arc, sending Los Angeles into the break with a 56-42 lead. "My jump shot was falling for me tonight," Bryant said. "I did a great job penetrating the gaps. I penetrated and pitched, my teammates hit shots. When they do that, it's very tough to guard us because now you have to make a decision." "I thought he made some tough shots, but I also thought he was in the paint early in the first half, creating opportunities for other guys," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "He made some tough shots, but he also was in the paint creating easy shots for guys." Bryant made 15-of-22 shots, including all four of his attempts from the arc in the fourth quarter. Los Angeles made 12-of-23 attempts from 3-point range. The second quarter proved to be the decisive period as the Lakers outscored the Sonics, 29-16. Butler scored nine points in the period. Bryant scored the first two baskets of the second half and Butler added a layup to give Los Angeles a 62-42 bulge. "It felt good to get a win," said Butler, who is averaging 28.3 points over his last three games. "Our next challenge is Sacramento. We just have to continue to go out there and play hard and kind of be the spoilers." Seattle fell to 2-4 without All-Star Rashard Lewis, but still has a comfortable six-game lead over Denver in the Northwest with seven to play. The Sonics have lost by an average of 17.7 points during their skid while allowing 113.3 points per contest. "Defensively we just have had a major dropoff on the defensive end of the floor," McMillan said. "We know it's going to be tough to score missing some key guys, but defensively, we should be able to do a better job." Lewis, who is second on the team with a scoring average of 20.8, likely will miss another week with a bruised right foot. "Teams are coming at us full steam ahead," said Sonics guard Ray Allen, who scored 30 points. "It's just five-on-five, it doesn't matter who is in the lineup. I'm not going to say we're missing certain guys. We just got beat. Our defense has been very porous the last few games. Rookie Nick Collison matched a season high with 16 points for the Sonics, who were outscored in each quarter and trailed by as many as 25 points midway through the fourth.
