LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kobe Bryant scored 27 points, Pau Gasol had 20 points and nine rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers hung on for their seventh straight victory, 100-88 Friday night over the New Jersey Nets

Lamar Odom had 14 points and 11 rebounds as the Lakers extended the NBA’s longest active winning streak despite never shaking the struggling Nets, who got 35 points from Brook Lopez in their ninth loss in 10 games.

Sasha Vujacic scored 17 points and Jordan Farmar had 12 in both reserve guards’ return to Staples Center with New Jersey after winning two titles with the Lakers.

Shannon Brown scored 14 points for Los Angeles, which has been perfect since an embarrassing blowout loss to Memphis at home on Jan. 2, its fourth defeat in six games.
