With two minutes left, Kobe Bryant took the game into his own hands.

The star Laker broke a 103-point tie by hitting a 20-foot bucket, as he scored seven of the Lakers’ final nine points in their 112-109 victory in Seattle.

Bryant finished the night with 46 points on 13-of-27 shooting, while punishing the SuperSonics at the foul line where he hit a 19-of-24 clip.

The Lakers fell behind by eight at halftime before Bryant turned it around by exploding for 20 points in the third quarter alone.

He also added six assists, five rebounds and three steals, while Lamar Odom scored 20 points (9-of-11) with seven assists.

While Seattle enjoyed a 50-31 rebounding advantage and were led by Chris Wilcox’s career-high 32 points and 18 rebounds, the Lakers were simply too efficient by shooting 50.6 percent.
