SAN ANTONIO - Kobe Bryant didnt catch Michael Jordan, though he got a victory thanks to Nick Young.Young scored 29 points, including a go-ahead 3-pointer with 7.4 seconds left in overtime, Bryant had 22 and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame a shaky ending to beat the San Antonio Spurs 112-110 on Friday night.After calling his teammates soft in a profanity-laced tirade Thursday following a scrimmage, Bryant was much happier with their efforts against the defending champions.Look, we can all criticize my style of leadership all day long, Bryant said. You can sit there and its uncomfortable, its whatever, but Ive been Ive been doing that since high school. We play this game to win championships and I have five of them.Its worked pretty well throughout my career.Tim Duncan had 19 points and 18 rebounds for San Antonio (16-7), which had its six-game home winning streak snapped in a performance Gregg Popovich called pitiful.It might have been good enough without the player nicknamed Swaggy P.Im so happy it ended up in my hands, Young said. I wanted to shoot that bad, especially being on the floor watching Kobe and playing for the Lakers; nothing like those types of shots.Young was 30 feet away with Manu Ginobili in his face and the shot clock about to expire.The last 3, Manu was everything but inside his jersey and he had to adjust his shot in the air and kind of shoot around Manus hands and it goes in, Duncan said. If you put a team in a situation like that, things like that can happen. We put the blame on ourselves for the 48-50 minutes before it gets to that point.Bryant needed 30 points to tie Jordan for third place on the career scoring list, but will have to wait until Sunday in Minnesota to possibly surpass the Hall of Famer.Bryants final basket in regulation was a 3-pointer in front of Popovich as the shot clock sounded with 1:59 remaining, nodding his head in celebration as he trotted down the court with the Lakers ahead 101-92.Thats when things went wrong for Los Angeles.San Antonio scored eight points in a minute, capped by Danny Greens 3-poointer with 45 seconds left to cut Los Angeles lead to 101-100. Bryant missed his final two jumpers and Ginobili made a free throw to tie the game with 6 seconds remaining. Duncan missed a turnaround jumper at the end of regulation.Bryant missed his final five shots while going 7 of 22, giving up numerous shot opportunities in favour of firing passes to his teammates. He finished with nine assists, but many of his passes led to secondary feeds for baskets.He was doubled a lot, but I thought he played well, Los Angeles coach Byron Scott said. He didnt shoot the ball particularly well, he had some great looks that he just missed, but I think in the second half, fourth quarter and overtime, a lot of that was due to fatigue. But you know, hes a warrior, hes going to try and gut it out, look for the open man or the open shot and knock down those buckets.Jeremy Lin, Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill each had 14 points for Los Angeles (7-16), which trailed 10-0.I thought the Lakers did a great job, Popovich said, leaving the postgame interview without taking any questions. They had an edge, they were aggressive on both ends of the floor, they executed well and they definitely wanted the game more than we did. It seemed more important to them than to us. I thought our performance was pitiful.TIP-INSLakers: Bryant received an enthusiastic thumbs-up from Popovich as the Lakers superstar took the court for the opening tipoff. . Bryant is tied with James Worthy for sixth on the Lakers career blocks list with 624. ...Spurs: San Antonio lost for the second time this season when its bench scores at least 40 points. The teams reserves eclipsed that mark for the 14th time by scoring 56 Friday. ... San Antonio has the best overall record since the 1997-98 season, going 966-402 for a .706 winning percentage. Despite their recent struggles, the Lakers are second during that span at .626 (855-511).NOT NOWDuncan surpassed Hall of Famer Jerry West of the Lakers for 18th on the career scoring list and has 25,197 points. Asked about the milestone, Duncan quickly replied, Not right now.HISTORIC FEEDScott was asked about Youngs request to provide the assist when Bryant moved past Jordan.Nick hasnt passed all year, Scott said, laughing.UP NEXTLakers: Visit Minnesota on Sunday.Spurs: Visit Denver on Sunday. Joe Sakic Jersey . Hes even holding a bat on one of his 2014 baseball cards. So far, hes playing like his picture. Mark Barberio Jersey . FIFA said in a statement Friday that "several racist and discriminatory incidents were apparently perpetrated by local supporters during the match, in particular by displaying neo-Nazi banners and by making monkey noises and gestures as well as Nazi salutes. ... as-Jersey/. -- Steven Stamkos scored his first goal since returning from a major injury, Ryan Callahan had his first goal with Tampa Bay, and the Lightning beat the Florida Panthers 5-4 on Thursday night. Tyson Barrie Jersey . The thinking at the time was Clowney could have already been promised he would be selected first overall by the Houston Texans, therefore negating any need to meet with any other teams. The plot took another twist this week. Carl Soderberg Jersey .The Los Angeles Lakers star passed Michael Jordan for third on the NBAs career scoring list Sunday night in a 100-94 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.The Vancouver Whitecaps acquired an international roster spot from Eastern Conference side Chicago Fire in exchange for midfielder Matt Watson. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Whitecaps FC have 12 international roster spots through the 2014 season and 10 international roster spots through 2016. "Matty is a hard working player with great character and a tremendous attitude," Whitecaps FC head coach Carrl Robinson said.dddddddddddd"This move was made in the best interest of both Mattys career and the club. We thank Matty for his dedication to the club over the past two seasons and we wish him the best of luck with Chicago Fire." Watson joined Whitecaps FC in December, 2011. In two seasons with the club, the native of Redditch, England, started 28 of his 39 appearances, recording two assists.
