LOS ANGELES, May 2 (UPI) -- Kobe Bryant scored 38 points Tuesday to lead the Los Angeles Lakers past Denver 104-100 in the second game of their Western Conference quarterfinals series.

The win gave Los Angeles a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series, which resumes Friday in Colorado.

Bryant made 15-of-29 field goal attempts and missed only two of his 11 free throws. He also turned in four assists as the Lakers led wire to wire.

Ty Lawson hit 11-of-17 from the floor for 25 points and Kenneth Faried scored 14 for the Nuggets.
