Lakers trailing, Bryant ailing

The Lakers trailed the Cleveland Cavaliers at halftime, 50-49. Kobe Bryant suffered a dislocated right ring finger when he tried to steal the ball from LeBron James less than two minutes into the game. Bryant returned to the tape with his finger taped to his pinkie. That’s the right pinkie, the one he injured last Feb. 5 and declined to undergo surgery on during the offseason. Bryant had only five points on 2-for-5 shooting in the first half. He also had a team-leading six assists. Andrew Bynum had 11 points and Pau Gasol had 10. James had 10 points on 4-for-11 shooting for Cleveland.
