Nice 2nd half for Kobe and Lin, but Suns win in OT. Promising though if you're a Laker fan. instagram.com/p/ucRSmQQe0R/

Gary Lee

INSTANT RECAP: Despite Kobe’s heroics late in the fourth quarter, Lakers lose 114-108 in overtime via @TheeCoreyH. lakersnation.com/lakers-preseas…

Alex Kennedy

Kobe Bryant's last three games: 27 points vs. Utah 26 points vs. Utah 27 points vs. Phoenix

Mark Medina

Wes has a tightened jaw during the timeout. Looks like he's trying to emulate Kobe

Byron Scott pulled Kobe - perhaps for the game with 2:38 left in OT

Royce Young

Kobe's got 27 tonight, and showed the best and worst of the new him in preseason. cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-bas… Check out the fadeaway on Tucker.

Ellington in for Kobe. I imagine he's done for night. It is close, but it's a preseason game

Wes Johnson makes a three AFTER PJ Tucker fouls Kobe. Of course.

Ryan Ward

Kobe nails a jumper. Game tied. 96 apiece

It's great to see Kobe making clutch, turnaround fadeaways again. vine.co/v/Ob30TUDXAMD #MambaBack

Ryan Ward

Lakers: Price, Kobe, Wes, Boozer and Hill to start OT.

Eric Pincus

Lin has fouled out - so LA has to do this OT w/o the guy who kept them in this game before Kobe (almost) closed it out (minus 2 Wes FT)

Gary Lee

GIVE THE BALL TO KOBE, CHIEF KEEF.

Ryan Ward

Ronnie Price checked in for Carlos Boozer. Lakers: Price, Lin, Kobe, Wes and Hill

Eric Pincus

Vintage Kobe to close this thing down - though Suns have ball with a 3-point deficit - time out 12.8 left on clock

Paul Coro

Kobe went all Mamba with 3 tough turnarounds/fadeaways vs. good Tucker D. On the 4th try, he drew a foul. LA 94-91, :12.8 left. PHX ball.

Ryan Ward

Kobe hits both free throws. Lakers up three, 94-91. 12.8 left.

Kobe is also chipping away at the FT line. After missing 2 on Sunday, he only missed 1 tonight.

Ryan Ward

Lakers up 1. Kobe to the line for 2. 92-91. 12.8 secs left.

Mark Medina

Three straight fallaways. Three straight buckets for Kobe Bean

Bill Oram

Little smile from Kobe after he buries that tough, tough turnaround J to put the Lakers up 92-91 in the final minute.

Ryan Ward

Three straight baskets for Kobe. Lakers up 1.

Gary Lee

And the slap to the ass. RT @AngryLakersFan: All that was missing there was the smirk over to Alvin Gentry as Kobe walked by.

Mark Medina

Kobe posts up again. Money. Lakers up 90-88 w/ 1:15 left.

Chris Palmer

Kobe with that cold-blooded turnaround.

Jovan Buha

Kobe is going off... on a Tuesday.

Ryan Ward

Kobe does it again. Lakers up 2, 90-88. About a min left.

DON’T PASS THE BALL ANYMORE, KOBE. SHOOT IT EVERY SINGLE POSSESSION.

Royce Young

Just, um, a little short on that... 35 footer... with 2 seconds left on the clock.. Kobe... gfycat.com/MediocreConcer… #goodfjobgoodeffort

Gary Lee

No one saw that airball, Kobe.

Mark Medina

Kobe shot the ball and the crowd gasped. His shot airballed and the crowd moaned

Paul Coro

Even Kobe Bryant grimaced at a bad traveling call on P.J. Tucker against him. Said something to Hornacek on the way back with a smirk.

Ryan Ward

Really like this lineup: Lin, Kobe, Ellington, Randle and Davis…. And Lin drains a three.

Mark Medina

Kobe Bryant returns at the 7:12 mark of the fourth quarter. He's at 24 minutes now. I presume he closes this out

Gary Lee

At the end of 3, Lakers trail 77-71. Kobe leads the Lakers with 15 points and had some nice jumpers. Highlights: lakersnation.com/los-angeles-la…

Gary Lee

"I been ballin' so damn hard, I swear I think that I'm Kobe” - Chief Keef AKA Wes Johnson.

Gary Lee

Probably. RT @AngryLakersFan: @Gary Lee Nah, Kobe made him play defense the whole time.

Gary Lee

Wes Johnson practiced with Kobe the entire summer. Therefore, Wes Johnson thinks he’s Kobe.
