Lakers 100, Knicks 90

Kobe Bryant scored 34 points on 14-for-20 shooting, an efficient night on a night when the Lakers’ rhythm came and went against the overmatched New York Knicks. Ron Artest and Andrew Bynum added 17 points apiece. Pau Gasol had 11 points and a team-leading 16 rebounds. Derek Fisher scored 12 points. Not to be overlooked, Lamar Odom had five points and 12 rebounds in a reserve role. The Lakers won their fourth consecutive. Wilson Chandler and Nate Robinson each scored 12 for New York.
