Lakers lose in OT, series tied

The Lakers made up a 12-point deficit in the last four minutes to even make it into overtime, but the Jazz rolled to a 123-115 win in Utah. Kobe shot 13 of 33 from the floor and finished with 33 points and ten assists. The Lakers never led after going up was that kind of game. Ronny Turiaf was ejected in the second period for a flagrant foul. The series comes back to Staples Center Wednesday night tied 2-2. ESPN, LAT
