PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Kobe Bryant had his place in history. With “Beat L.A.!” echoing through a second straight sellout crowd, Lou Williams had his shot to remember.
Williams nailed the go-ahead 3-pointer, scored 14 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, and spoiled Bryant’s record-setting night while leading the Philadelphia 76ers to 95-90 win over the L.A. Lakers Monday.
Bryant scored 24 of his 28 points in the first half. He passed former teammate Shaquille O’Neal and moved into fifth place on the NBA’s career scoring list.
The 33-year-old Bryant, the NBA’s leading scorer with 29.4 points, has 28,601 career points.
“All the battles we’ve been in, the playoff battles, the duo that we’ve been able to form,” Bryant said oif O’Neal. “When you (consider) the championships, it makes it a little more significant.”
