LOS ANGELES -- Kobe Bryant scored six of his 33 points in the final 4½ minutes after blocking an attempted dunk by Andrei Kirilenko, and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Utah Jazz 119-109 on Sunday night.
Playing their second straight game against a reigning division champion, the Lakers made it two in a row after humbling the Suns 119-98 at Phoenix on Friday night.
Bryant was 13-for-19 from the field and fellow guard Derek Fisher had 19 points, including a career-high 13 free throws. Andrew Bynum had 15 points and nine rebounds off the bench before fouling out with 55 seconds to play.
Deron Williams led Utah with 26 points and Carlos Boozer added 23 points and 12 rebounds.
Never miss a local story.
Trailing 82-81 after three quarters, the Lakers pulled ahead 88-82 on Bynum's fast-break dunk and a pair of driving layups by backup point guard Jordan Farmar, the second one resulting in a three-point play with 10:44 remaining. Farmar finished with 12 points.
The Lakers had a seven-point margin when Bryant blocked Kirilenko's driving dunk with 6:10 remaining. They built their lead to 109-96 with 3:11 to play, getting a three-point play from Bynum and a pair of baskets by Bryant.
Fisher missed all seven of his shots in the first half, but made his first three field-goal attempts in the second half and added a pair of free throws that gave the Lakers a 72-71 lead with 3:54 left in the third quarter. Fisher played the final 4:49 after Farmer gave the Lakers the spark they needed at both ends of the court.
Neither team led by more than six points in the first half, which ended with Utah taking a 51-46 lead on a 3-pointer by Williams and a dunk by Kirilenko in the final 39 seconds.
SUNS 103, CAVALIERS 92, at Phoenix -- Steve Nash scored 30 points and had 10 assists and Phoenix -- playing without Amare Stoudemire -- rallied from a 12-point deficit in the second quarter to beat Cleveland.
Stoudemire, the Suns' All-Star center, was sidelined because of soreness in his right knee. He had arthroscopic surgery Oct. 2. Coach Mike D'Antoni said Stoudemire was day to day.
"I feel like the first three games, we haven't had good rhythm, we haven't had cohesion," Nash said. "We scrapped a little tougher in the second half (Sunday). We have to work together and find the rhythm that we've been successful with."
CELTICS 98, RAPTORS 95 (OT), at Toronto -- Ray Allen made the winning 3-pointer with less than three seconds to play and scored 33 points in Boston's overtime victory over Toronto.
Kevin Garnett scored 10 of his 23 points in overtime and had 13 rebounds, giving him double-doubles in both games for the Celtics.
The Celtics played without head coach Doc Rivers, who left Toronto early Sunday after his father died in Chicago. Assistant Tom Thibodeau took over for Rivers.
PISTONS 92, HAWKS 91, at Auburn Hills, Mich. -- Chauncey Billups made a free throw with 1.7 seconds left to give Detroit a victory over Atlanta.
CLIPPERS 115, SUPERSONICS 101, at Los Angeles -- Corey Maggette scored 27 points and Tim Thomas made three 3-pointers during a one-minute span late in the fourth quarter to lead Los Angeles over Seattle.
BOBCATS 90, HEAT 88, at Miami -- Jason Richardson scored 29 points and Charlotte wasted a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter before rallying to beat Miami.
Raymond Felton scored 19 points for the Bobcats, who are two games over .500 -- 2-0 -- for the first time in their four-year history. Charlotte won despite shooting 1 for 12 with six turnovers in the final 10-plus minutes.
KNICKS 97, TIMBERWOLVES 93, at New York -- Jamal Crawford scored 10 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, and New York won its home opener for the first time in six years.
HORNETS 93, NUGGETS 88, at Denver -- David West overcame a slow start to score 17 points and lead New Orleans past Denver.
West missed his first eight shots before settling in. He made two crucial baskets in the fourth quarter to help quash the Nuggets' comeback as the Hornets improved to 3-0 and handed Denver its first loss.
