Time Warner Cable SportsNet will give a behind the scenes look at the Lakers' recent 118-116 overtime victory over the Toronto Raptors.

Premiering Wednesday at 5:00 p.m., "Backstage: Lakers" will show exclusive footage including video from the coaches' morning meeting and from the team's locker room after the grueling victory.

A big game by Kobe Bryant -- 41 points, 12 assists and multiple three-pointers --  helped the Lakers climb out of a near-impossible position against the Raptors.

A preview shows Bryant telling his team after the game, "We're feeling good about ourselves and we're playing well right now - but we've really got to lock in."

Although Bryant severely sprained his ankle three games later, the Lakers have pulled one full game ahead of the ninth-place Utah Jazz in the Western Conference.

The Lakers hope to get Bryant back in time to play Friday night at Staples Center against the Washington Wizards.
