Despite a 38-point effort by Kobe Bryant, the Sacramento Kings beat the Los Angeles Lakers, 113-97.

For the Kings, their 54 percent field-goal percentage and their ability to force the Lakers into 20 turnovers is largely responsible for the win. The Kings played solid team ball and had six different players score more than 10 points in the game, including a team-high 23 by Marcus Thornton.

For the Lakers, nobody other than Bryant was able to get it going. Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol combined for 15 points. On top of the team's 20 turnovers, it also only had 16 assists, showing they had trouble facilitating their offense.
