    Lakers down Wizards to halt four-game slide

    Dec 15, 2012

    WASHINGTON — Straining to work out the kinks in an offense coach Mike D'Antoni compared to dancing with two left shoes, Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers even struggled to put away the Washington Wizards.

    A night after joking about wanting to face the Washington Generals, the Harlem Globetrotters' longtime foils, Bryant scored 30 points, and reserve Jodie Meeks added 24, helping the Lakers beat the Wizards 102-96 on Friday (Saturday, Manila time) to end a four-game losing streak.

    Slowed by foul trouble, Dwight Howard finished with 12 points and 14 rebounds, and the Lakers improved to 10-14.

    Cartier Martin scored a season-high 21 points for Washington, which fell to an NBA-worst 3-17.
