Lakers Hold off Bulls for 5th Straight Win
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Shannon Brown scored 21 points, Kobe Bryant added 20, and the Los Angeles Lakers held off the Chicago Bulls 98-91 Tuesday night for their fifth straight victory.

Lamar Odom had 21 points and eight rebounds, but the Lakers trailed early in the fourth quarter before Derrick Rose finally slowed down.

Rose scored 30 points with a series of his usual daredevil drives to the hoop, but managed just three points for the Bulls in the final period, all on free throws.

Los Angeles reserves Brown and Steve Blake led a 17-2 run that included 10 straight points, while the Bulls went more than 5{ minutes between field goals late in their seventh straight loss to the Lakers.

Chicago got just one field goal and 10 points in the final 8:13.
