LOS ANGELES, Jan. 2 (UPI) -- Kobe Bryant hit a 3-pointer with a second remaining Friday, completing a Los Angeles comeback and giving the Lakers a 109-108 victory over Sacramento.
The Lakers trailed by 20 during the third period, but Bryant put together a typically sensational effort despite playing with a broken finger.
Bryant, who produced a season-high 44 points on Tuesday against Golden State, finished with 39 against the Kings. He hit 13-of-26 shots from the field and made five 3-pointers.
Beno Udrih made two free throws to give Sacramento a 108-106 lead with 33 seconds to play and Ime Udoka had a chance to clinch the game at the foul line with 4 seconds left.
Udoka, however, missed both attempts and Bryant made the Kings pay with his winning jumper.
Lamar Odom added 20 for the Lakers and Pau Gasol had 17. Spencer Hawes scored 30 to lead the Kings.
