The play was designed for Kobe Bryant. The Lakers had squandered a 17-point lead over New Jersey and held only a one-point advantage at 88-87 with 10 seconds remaining. Matt Barnes delivered the ball to the team's star. Bryant, coming off of a screen, shot a 26-foot three-pointer, which bounced seven times on the rim before falling through the net, allowing an anxious Staples Center crowd to celebrate instead of reel over what otherwise could have been an inconceivable loss.

 Aaron Holiday, a junior guard at North Hollywood Campbell Hall who's the younger brother of former UCLA and NBA guard Jrue Holiday, has committed to UCLA, his mother, Toya, said Monday. Holiday averaged more than 30 points a game this season for the Vikings, who lost in the Southern Section Division 4A semifinals last week. In his last three playoff games, Holiday scored 36, 39 and 42 points. His sister, Lauren, plays for UCLA's women's team. His commitment is a triumph for new Coach Steve Alford, who had to re-recruit the family after Jrue's experience under former Coach Ben Howland.
