Follow Lakers vs. Warriors live right here.
It was a thriller in Oracle, with the Los Angeles Lakers pulling out a come-from-behind 118-115 win over the Golden State Warriors.
Some are calling this a turning-point game for the Lakers, but I'm not too certain of that.

The Lakers, led by Kobe Bryant's 34 points on 16-41 shooting, couldn't have won this one without solid bench production from Metta World Peace who dropped 20 points off the bench.
Closing the Lakers out was a major issue for the Warriors, who were led by Jarrett Jack and his 29 points and 11 assists.
Steve Nash had 12 points on 5-8 shooting, with nine assists. It's not a bad start for the point guard that Lakers fans hope can swoop in and save the day.
Up next for the Lake Show is a Christmas day showdown with the mighty New York Knicks. It's going to be a great Christmas matchup that shows us what the Lakers are truly made of.
Lakers have won 4 straight games overall plus 21 of their last 24 in OT. Their 15 OT wins over last 4 seasons are most in the NBA— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) December 23, 2012
That's a sign of a young, young team. The Warriors couldn't close the Lakers out.
Kobe's running around high-fiving his guys, and he's doing it because he knows he almost blew that one (34 points on 16-41 shooting).
Lakers 118, Warriors 115—end of a thriller
Stephen Curry isn't ready to be done tonight. Hit's a long-range three-ball, and keeps the Warriors in it.
Steve Nash's mini-floater = clutch-time performance for the Lake Show
Lakers 118, Warriors 115—08.8 remaining in OT
Howard is fouled out, and he doesn't seem too happy with that one.
That could be it for the Warriors, two rough possessions.
Lakers 116, Warriors 112—40.0 remaining in OT
It's a sprint between Jarrett Jack (29) and Kobe Bryant (30).
Who's going to end with more. Well, that three-ball helped Kobe.
Lakers 114, Warriors 110—2:08 remaining in OT
Kobe Bryant giving the Lakers some serious momentum in this one. It's only taken him 36 shots to do it.

There was a time when you'd never get away with a rookie guarding Kobe 1-on-1 with the game on the line— J.A. Adande (@jadande) December 23, 2012
Draymond Green's defense on Kobe in that possession deserves play of the night honors. We're going to OT.
Let's be honest, this is for the best because it means Kobe will put up 40 shots.
Warriors 108, Lakers 108—5:00 remaining in OT
We saw it all game long, so why not when the game is on the line.
Jarrett Jack is having his MVP game of the year, as typical for Jack—27 points on 12-18 shooting. #EpicNight
Warriors 108, Lakers 108—0:14 remaining in the 4th quarter
Say hello to Metta World Peace and a corner three-ball.
All of that thanks to Kobe Bryant being willing to give up the final shot. Missing 21 shots makes giving that up a lot easier.
Lakers 108, Warriors 106—24.1 remaining in the 4th quarter
Well here comes Kobe's 35th FGA.
Warriors 106, Lakers 105—33.9 remaining in the 4th quarter
It's amazing how easily Kobe Bryant forgets his 50 misses earlier in the game, and rises up and sinks a bucket to give the Lakers a lead.
David Lee responds with a wide-open foul-line jumper. Lee will hit that all day if you leave him open. #DefenseAnyone?

WHAT A GAME!!!
Steve Nash sinks a three to give the Lakers a lead
Festus Ezeli gets an alley-oop to regain the lead on the other end
Warriors 104, Lakers 103—1:06 remaining in the 4th quarter
Two HUGE free-throws made by Dwight Howard. Nice to finally see some production out of him.
Warriors 102, Lakers 100—2:13 remaining in the 4th quarter
After the crazy LAL run, GSW scored 5 straight, Jack w/a 3 (who else .. he has 25) and Barnes w/a put back. 102-98, 2:27 left.— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) December 23, 2012
Holy put-back slam, over Dwight Howard, from Harrison Barnes.
Talk about an impressive play by a rookie to put his team up four points late in the 4th quarter.
Warriors 102, Lakers 98—2:27 remaining in the 4th quarter
Well, i'll give Kobe some credit there. After missing a bazillion shots, he made that three-ball to tie things up.
Harrison Barnes, the ROOKIE, responds over Kobe with a mid-range jumper of his own.
Lakers 98, Warriors 97—3:38 remaining in the 4th quarter
Who else but Jarrett Jack stops LAL's run. He has 22 points off GSW's bench. Jordan Hill has 14 & 8, MWP 17 & 4 off LAL's pine.— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) December 23, 2012
Kobe Bryant picks up his 5th personal foul. Looks to Mike D'Antoni and gives him the "I'm Kobe Bryant, don't bench me" look.
Warriors 95, Lakers 88—6:25 remaining in the 4th quarter
Jarrett Jack with his 22nd point. Harrison Barnes hits a corner three and the arena goes absolutely nuts.
Just like that, a travel, and a scoreless streak for the last few minutes, and the Lakers are back within four minutes.
Kobe is coming back in — this could be a problem, because he went to the bench down 14 points, and now the Lakers are only down four.
Warriors 90, Lakers 86—7:02 remaining in the 4th quarter
By the way, the Lakers have crawled back within eight w/ Kobe on the bench. So there's that.— Lakers Nation (@LakersNation) December 23, 2012
Metta World Peace — 15 points on 5-10 shooting
Kobe Bryant — 21 points on 10-29 shooting
Think Kobe is the problem for the Lakers?
Warriors 90, Lakers 78—10:07 remaining in the 4th quarter
Dwight Howard is playing like a 5-year old tonight. D'Antoni puts him back in and he gets a foul in the first 10 seconds of the 4th quarter. #SMH
Warriors 88, Lakers 76—11:29 remaining in the 4th quarter
