Kobe Bryant opened the door for the Trail Blazers in the final minute on Friday night, but just as quickly, he slammed it shut. Bryant's turnover with 32.6 seconds to play and the Lakers leading 107-105 gave the Blazers a chance to tie or take the lead. But LaMarcus Aldridge missed a jumper, forcing the Blazers to foul, and Bryant then hit two free throws to give Los Angeles what proved to be an insurmountable lead as the Lakers went on to win 111-107.
