NBA roundup: Lakers hold off the Thunder

Kobe Bryant had 21 points, 14 assists, and 9 rebounds, Steve Nash added 7 of his 17 points in the final 5½ minutes, and the Lakers held off the NBA-leading Okla­homa City Thunder, 105-96, Sunday in Los Angeles.

Pau Gasol scored 16 points in a reserve role as the Lakers picked up the most impressive victory of their thoroughly unimpressive season, coolly maintaining a small lead down the stretch of their second straight win after a four-game skid.
