In a season full of the unpredictable and, often, the unwieldy, the Lakers found themselves in yet another unfamiliar position. They were back at .500. It took more than two months to get there, but they pried away a 99-98 victory Sunday from the Atlanta Hawks after the buzz of Kobe Bryant's dunk wore off. When the game was secured, Bryant stuck out his chest, actor Jeremy Piven high-fived him on the court before a Staples Center security guard intervened, and the Lakers had 30 wins and 30 losses, their first time at even money since Jan. 1. Champagne corks popped, victory parades were planned and Metta World Peace invited a group of reporters to his house for some late-night sushi.

Hawks 96, Lakers 92 (final) The short-handed Hawks held on to beat the Lakers, 96-92, on Wednesday night in Atlanta.  Playing without Josh Smith, Jeff Teague, Zaza Pachulia and Lou Williams, the Hawks pulled ahead by double digits early. Kobe Bryant had a monster third quarter, scoring 20 of his 31 points, but missed on a crucial baseline fadeaway with 3.9 seconds left in the fourth quarter with the Lakers down two. On the play, Bryant came down awkwardly after his shot, twisting an ankle and leaving the game with what appeared to be a sprain . Kyle Korver hit a pair of free throws with 2.6 seconds left to close out the Hawks' victory, which ended a four-game winning streak by the Lakers.  Atlanta was led by Devin Harris, who scored nine of his 17 points in a key fourth-quarter stretch that recaptured the lead for the Hawks.

UCLA BASKETBALL ROSTER Starters David Wear, 6-10, Jr., F: Bulked up this off-season. Should spend more time on the wing in pick-and-roll situations in transition. A mid-range jump shot would come in handy. Travis Wear, 6-10, Jr., F: Has shorter hair than his brother, but with a similar game and build. Ben Howland will feature the twins from Santa Ana Mater Dei High as much as possible. Norman Powell, 6-4, So., G: Stout defender is expected to make a large leap into prominence this season - an even bigger jump than he took when soaring over Larry Drew in a recent dunk contest.

On the morning of Halloween, Kyle Anderson was called into an office. The UCLA freshman point guard expected trouble, but instead he received news he had been waiting weeks to hear. The NCAA had cleared him , meaning he'd be eligible to play for the Bruins this season. "Words couldn't describe how happy I was," the men's basketball guard said Friday night after UCLA's "Pauley Madness" event at Pauley Pavilion, his first public comments since being cleared. The NCAA was investigating ties between a sports agent and Anderson's father, Kyle Sr. UCLA officials had long expected Anderson to be cleared, but the process dragged on weeks longer than they expected.
