In return from injury, Kobe hits go-ahead 3 to nip Grizzlies

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (NBA.com exclusive) -- With the Los Angeles Lakers trailing Memphis 98-96 with 18.8 seconds remaining, Kobe Bryant saw a lane to the basket.

He immediately took off for what seemed to be a game-tying bucket. Little did he know Rudy Gay was lurking from behind and viciously swatted the ball out of bounds with 8.8 seconds left.

That was just enough time for Bryant, playing in his first game back from an ankle injury that forced him to miss five games, to do what he does best. With 4.3 ticks left, Bryant drained what eventually was the game-winning 3-pointer, giving the Lakers a 99-98 win.

"He saved the day again,'' Lakers center Andrew Bynum said.

Not a bad ending for Bryant, who finished with 32 points, six assists and seven rebounds in his return to action. Although Bryant said he was 80-85 percent healthy before the game, he was healthy enough to make 13 of his 19 shots attempts, including 3 of 4 from 3-point range.

Whether the sellout FedExForum crowd of 18,119 was cheering for or against Bryant, not one was surprised to see that last shot sail through the nets.

"It's fun,'' Bryant said. "That's my responsibility on the team. That's one of the big things I do here is make plays down the stretch. If it's not taking the shot, it's making plays for somebody else. I enjoy it. ...Every time, it feels like the first time. It truly does. It's a great feeling. It's always brand new.''

As far as the Grizzlies are concerned, it never should have come down to that. Memphis appeared to have the Lakers beat for the second straight time. They took a 98-96 lead on a tip-in by Zach Randolph with 37 seconds remaining. After a missed shot by Pau Gasol with 25 seconds left, the Lakers were forced to foul the Grizzlies' best free throw shooter, O.J. Mayo, an 83.6 percent shooter.

Mayo missed both attempts, leaving the door open for the Lakers. After a timout, Bryant saw a lane to the basket and took it. But as he went up for the shot, he got a surprise.

"I'm not sure who jumped over the top,'' Bryant said of Gay's block. "It was ridiculous. It was almost comical how high he jumped to block it. It was a pretty amazing play.''

The Lakers retained possession, setting up Bryant's 3-pointer that gave his team their first lead since early in the third quarter. The Grizzlies still had one final attempt.

They inbounded the ball to center Marc Gasol, who dished off to Mayo. Mayo used a Gasol screen to setup his shot, but he was forced to shoot over the outstretched arms of Pau Gasol.

"I just had to stay in front of him and contest his shot as best I could so he didn't have a good look,'' Pau Gasol said. "Still, he was able to get up and had a nice release. I'm glad it didn't go in.''

The win helped the Lakers atone for a third quarter that saw them commit eight turnovers, which allowed the Grizzlies to overcome a 53-48 haltime deficit. An 11-0 spurt gave the Grizzlies their first lead of the game as they built a 63-56 lead. The lead swelled to 81-70 before the Lakers scored six unanswered points to trail 81-76 going into the final quarter.

Memphis led 93-89 with 4:52 to play and when Pau Gasol missed three of four free throws, and when Derek Fisher missed a pair, the Grizzlies looked to have wrapped up what would have been their first season series win over the Lakers.

But not only did they, too, miss three free throws down the stretch, they managed to scored just three points in the final 4:11. Bryant hit a 3-pointer to tie the game at 96, before hitting the final dagger at the end. He scored the Lakers' final nine points.

"We battled,'' Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins said. "A great player made a great play. That's what great players do. You have to give him his due. It hurts. We played well enough to get the win, but obviously when you have a Kobe Bryant, who can make plays like he can at the end, playing well doesn't always matter.''

While the Lakers were glad to have their go-to guy back, Fisher told Bryant he needs to share some of the credit.

"I told him he has to give a shout out to myself and Pau for missing those free throws,'' Fisher said.

"Nobody in the world is shocked anymore at what Kobe Bryant does on the floor, and what he brings to the table,'' Pau Gasol added. "We expect that at the end of the game. ... It feels good to have him back and doing what he does.''

Pau Gasol chpped in with 22 points and 13 rebounds for the Lakers, while Bynum added 15 points before fouling out, and Fisher had 10.

The Grizzlies were led by Mayo's 25 points. Randolph had 20 points and 14 boards and Gay scored 17.

The Lakers head to Dallas to take on the revamped Mavericks Wednesday night, while the Grizzlies look to regroup at Washington.
