Lakers 93, 76ers 81

PHILADELPHIA — Kobe Bryant suffered a sprained right pinky and scored only nine points on 3-for-11 shooting in the Lakers’ victory tonight over the Philadelphia 76ers. X-rays taken after the Lakers’ fourth consecutive victory were negative. He said he was hurt when “Pau (Gasol) threw a bad pass.” His status for Sunday’s game in Toronto is uncertain, although probably will play. He damaged ligaments in his pinky in February 2008, but continued to play. His latest injury is not in the joint, however. Lamar Odom led the Lakers with a season-best 28 points on 11-for-18 shooting. Gasol added 19 points and 13 rebounds and Matt Barnes had 15 points and 10 rebounds in a reserve role.
