Pacers handed the Lakers its second loss

By MICHAEL MAROT, AP Sports Writer - December 2, 2008

INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—Troy Murphy and Danny Granger spent most of Tuesday night working to keep the Pacers close to the Lakers. They spent those final few seconds like everyone else in Conseco Fieldhouse — watching, waiting and wondering if Murphy’s tantalizing tip would actually drop through the net. It did—just as the buzzer sounded.

Murphy’s game-winner completed an improbable comeback and gave the Pacers a desperately needed 118-117 victory after replay reviews confirmed the basket was good.

Kobe Bryant finished with 28 points, becoming the second-fastest player in league history to reach 22,000 career points, behind Wilt Chamberlain. Pau Gasol scored 20 points and 9 rebounds while Andrew Bynum had 17 and 9.
