Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant's second straight 40-point night included only one 3-point shot. More surprisingly, Lakers forward Pau Gasol also made one 3-pointer Wednesday. Take your pick, in regard to which shot helped the Lakers — and hurt the Jazz — the most in the Lakers' 90-87 overtime victory Wednesday night at EnergySolutions Arena. Bryant's 3-pointer came right after Josh Howard missed a shot in the lane that could have given the Jazz a six-point lead early in overtime, so it was big. Yet Gasol's shot may have been bigger. It came with 2:02 remaining and the Lakers trailing by two points. He took a pass from Bryant in the left corner and connected, giving the Lakers an 86-85 lead that they never lost.
