Lakers Swat Paul-less Hornets in OT

Kobe Bryant scored 11 big points in the OT to end the New Orleans Hornets' 13 overtime winning streak.

But before Bryant's heroics, the Los Angeles Lakers collapsed in the fourth quarter, letting the Hornets erase a 13-point lead and actually grab the lead late in the game. Thanks to Derek Fisher's three in the dying seconds of regulation, the Lakers forced overtime.

All-Star Chris Paul fouled out in early in the OT period, and the execution of the Hornets were limited to jump shots and spot up threes in the remaining time.
