Bryant can’t prevent the loss despite 30-point game.
The Milwaukee Bucks snapped a four-game losing streak with their 113-103 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night.
Larry Sanders had a career-high 21 points as well as 13 rebounds, while Marquis Daniels added 16 points to the winning cause.
The entire Bucks starting line-up finished in double scoring figures to ensure the win, with Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova each adding 20 points.
As for the Lakers it was Kobe Bryant who once again led the way with 30 points, but it wasn’t enough as their lead over the Utah Jazz for the final play-off spot in the West fell to just half a game.
Coach Mike D’Antoni will be desperate for his team to return to winning ways when they visit the Sacramento Kings on Saturday, while the Bucks face a daunting game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
