T-Wolves beat Lakers after Kobe misses 3-pointer

LOS ANGELES (AP) Zach LaVine grew up a Los Angeles Lakers fan. The first time he saw them play at in person at Staples Center, the Minnesota Timberwolves rookie outperformed everyone - including Kobe Bryant.

LaVine scored 18 of his team-high 28 points in the second quarter, and Mo Williams had 25 points and 11 assists to lead the Timberwolves to a 120-119 victory on Friday night. It wasn't sealed until Bryant missed a 3-pointer as time expired.

"It was really cool coming back here and being able to play here. I was even playing against my childhood idol out there," LaVine said. "I'm really surprised he missed that shot. That scared me at the end."
