Recap


Kobe Bryant took over in the final minute and finished with 27 points as the Los Angeles Lakers concluded their six-game road trip with a 94-92 victory over the host Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

Pau Gasol added 16 points and 17 rebounds and Andrew Bynum chipped in 14 and nine for the Lakers, who ended up 3-3 on the trip.

Jose Calderon had given the Raptors a 92-91 edge on a jumper with 20 seconds left, but Bryant was able to answer. After drawing a blocking foul, Los Angeles took the ball out of bounds and got it to Bryant, who buried a fadeaway jumper along the baseline with 4.8 seconds left.

Toronto had assumed control midway through the fourth quarter as Calderon hit a pair of 3-pointers during a 12-2 spurt. That gave the Raptors their first lead of the game with 2:11 remaining.

Bryant missed six straight shots during that run, but began to make up for it in the final minute.

The All-Star would break his drought with a 3-pointer to pull the Lakers back within 90-89. Bryant then stole the ball from Linas Kleiza and found Metta World Peace for a layup to take back the lead with 31 seconds left.

Calderon finished with 30 points to lead the Raptors.
