Los Angeles:

Kobe Bryant scored 26 of his 39 points in a dynamic second half, Pau Gasol added 17 points and 11 rebounds, and the weary Los Angeles Lakers gritted out a 97-90 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Friday night.

Matt Barnes had 16 points and six rebounds before fouling out for the Lakers, who won their fifth straight home game while playing their NBA-high ninth game in 13 days.

Los Angeles bounced back from a passionless first half with another strong effort from Bryant, who has three straight 30-point games. The Lakers outlasted the injury-depleted Warriors in the fourth quarter for their fifth win in seven games.
