Thunder Can't Cut Into Laker Lead With Kobe On The Bench

The Lakers had a nine point lead at the start of the fourth quarter and they've extended their lead to 11 with Kobe Bryant resting on the bench.

Metta World Peace has seven points in the first 3:16 of the fourth quarter to help Los Angeles extend the lead. If they Thunder are going to come back, they will now have to do it against a rested Kobe Bryant.
