BRYANT LIMPS OUT OF LAKERS WIN

lakersKobe Bryant’s Achilles injury flared again as the Los Angeles Lakers ended a four-game losing streak with a 95-91 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday.

The NBA legend, who is retiring at the end of the season, missed all five of his three-point attempts before exiting.

Guard Lou Williams was the hero for the Lakers, scoring 19 points and supplying eight assists.

Williams also made a crucial late basket with 18.5 seconds left to give the Lakers a three-point lead.

Jordan Clarkson finished with 18 points for the Lakers and point guard D’Angelo Russell added 13 points.

Tyreke Evans top-scored with 21 points for the Pelicans.
