Suns Pummel Kobe-less Lakers, 125-105

PHOENIX (AP) Shannon Brown scored 20 of his 24 points in the third quarter Saturday night, leading the Phoenix Suns to a 125-105 victory over a Los Angeles Lakers team playing without Kobe Bryant for the first time in two seasons.

An injured left shin ended Bryant’s string of 138 consecutive regular-season games played. The NBA’s leading scorer watched the Suns reserves dominate the second quarter, then Brown go off against his former team in the third.

Michael Redd scored 17 of his 20 points in the second quarter for the Suns in their highest-scoring game of the season.

Pau Gasol had 30 points and 13 rebounds, and Andrew Bynum added 23 points and 18 boards for the Lakers, who surrendered the most points they have allowed this season.
