LOS ANGELES, March 22 (UPI) -- Kobe Bryant led seven Los Angeles players in double figures Friday and the Lakers coasted to a 130-105 drubbing of Seattle.

The Lakers moved 1 1/2 games in front of second-place Phoenix in the Pacific Division and are a full game ahead of New Orleans and Houston in the scramble for the best record in the Western Conference.

Los Angeles completed a four-game sweep of the SuperSonics this season, with Bryant scoring 23 points and Luke Walton adding 17.

The Lakers made 60 percent of their shots from the field, including 12 of 23 from three-point range. They took a 13-point lead after one period and were not seriously threatened the rest of the way.

Seattle was led by Kevin Durant and Earl Watson with 20 points each. The Sonics have lost 10 straight games.
