Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork. Air Max Plus False .com) - Russell Westbrook scored 31 points with 10 assists and five rebounds to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 104-103 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night. Reggie Jackson deposited 25 points, Serge Ibaka netted 16 points with seven rebounds and five blocks and Andre Roberson added 10 points for the Thunder, who played without Kevin Durant due to a sprained right ankle. Durant left Thursdays loss to the Warriors after sustaining the sprain late in the first half. Oklahoma City has won eight of its last nine games. This was a good win for us, said Westbrook. We came out with a good mindset and got the win. We took what the defense gave us and knocked down the shots. Ed Davis paced the Lakers with 18 points to go along with nine rebounds, while Ronnie Price and Carlos Boozer chipped in with 14 points apiece. Los Angeles has lost two straight on the heels of a three-game winning streak. Kobe Bryant finished with a season low-tying nine points on 3-for-15 shooting. He did add a team-high eight assists with eight rebounds. Obviously we fouled then way too many times, Lakers coach Byron Scott said. They got to the free throw line 29 times. Our margin of error is not big enough to do that to give up 29 free throws and give up 11 offensive rebounds. Boozers layup put the Lakers up 101-100 with two minutes to play, then Jackson hit a pair of free throws less than a minute later and Westbrook knocked down a jumper to put the Thunder up three with 38.2 seconds left. Jeremy Lins jumper cut the deficit to one prior to Westbrook missing from the top of the key to give Los Angeles a chance at the win. Out of a timeout, Bryant received the inbound pass, dribbled to the elbow and pump-faked to get Roberson in the air, but Roberson stood tall and Bryant came up short on the potential-winning basket. We were able to get some stops, said Jackson. We battled to the final zeros and found a way to win. The Lakers led 26-20 after the first quarter and the Thunder didnt grab their first lead until late in the second. Bryant knocked down his first field goal of the half with 1:54 remaining in the second to give Los Angeles a 48-44 lead. Oklahoma City then ended the half on an 8-2 run to take a 52-50 lead into the break. Ibakas dunk off a quick feed from Westbrook gave the visitors their first advantage with under a minute left before each team traded a basket in the closing seconds. Boozers layup tied the game at 70-70 with over two minutes left in the half. Roberson, Jackson and Anthony Morrow each hit 3-pointers during a 12-3 surge to end the frame and help the Thunder to an 82-73 lead entering the fourth. Los Angeles trailed by nine when Wayne Ellington hit two 3s, the last of which capped a 14-2 run to give the Lakers a 91-88 edge with 7:13 to play in the game.

And it can be an unflinching, unforgiving place.Stay out there on the fringes of the defence trying to keep opposing receivers in check long enough and bad things happen. Developing the short-term memory required to get over them, however, isnt an innate talent but a necessary survival skill.One Cortez Allen is still working on.The Steelers signed the fourth-year cornerback to a $25-million contract on the eve of the season opener, a financial statement from the front office that Allen was ready to officially supplant veteran Ike Taylor as the teams top defensive back.Two months into the new deal, Allens quiet confidence is shaken, his spot in the starting lineup is in doubt and the path back uncertain. While the polite, reserved former cadet at The Citadel has kept a low profile heading into a crucial showdown against Baltimore on Sunday, his teammates are stumping for patience as Allen tries to break out of a prolonged funk.Everybody goes through it, veteran Ike Taylor said. I went through it. Deucey (William Gay) went through it. Now, hes going through it. Hes got to fight his way out.At the moment, its a decidedly uphill battle.Rock bottom may have come last Sunday, when Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck targeted Allen repeatedly while throwing for 400 yards in a 51-34 loss. Luck hit tight end Dwayne Allen for a 21-yard touchdown behind Allen in the second quarter and found Donte Moncrief for a 31-yard score over Allens outstretched arms in the third, part of a nightmarish day in which Allen was also beat for a 27-yard gain by Hakeem Nicks and drew a penalty for illegal contact, the team-high seventh flag hes earned this season.Hes got to lick his wounds, roll his sleeves up and come back to work this week, coach Mike Tomlin said. Well watch him close and expect him to do it and answer the bell that comes with putting bad stuff on tape.Theres plenty to go around. Allen started against the Colts but reserve Brice McCain also saw extensive playing time. McCains role could increase on Sunday night as the Steelers (5-3) try to avoid a season sweep at the hands of the Ravens (5-3).Either way, Allen will likely be on the ffield. Scarpe Nike Scontate On Line. Tomlin expects Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco to locate Allens No. 28 and attack. Its what Tomlin would do if he saw an opposing defensive back struggling.He better work to defend himself, Tomlin said.Tomlin is doing his best to keep Allens spirits up. He pulled Allen aside even as the big plays piled up against Indianapolis and reiterated his support for Allen both publicly and privately. Tomlin also drafted the injured Taylor who is still working his way back from a broken right forearm to serve as Allens de facto life coach.Taylor stressed hes 100 per cent certain Allen will regain the form that made him the teams best defensive back last season. When that happens, even the perpetually optimistic Taylor isnt sure.What I always tell my guys at corner is that youve got to be honest with yourself, Taylor said. There is no grey area when you play corner. Either youre getting the job done or youre not. So, once you establish that, everything else comes easy.Allen is putting in the work. He spent an extra 20 minutes on the practice field on Thursday, doing some one-on-one work against practice squad wide receiver C.J. Goodwin while third-string quarterback Landry Jones threw passes and defensive co-ordinator Dick LeBeau watched attentively.It was only a month ago Allen pulled down momentum-shifting interceptions in consecutive games. Thats perhaps the most befuddling aspect of his slide. Its not like receivers are running away from him. On most plays Allen has an opportunity to make a play on the ball. Hes just not making them.Its an ebb and flow even the best endure. LeBeau carved out a Hall of Fame career while picking off 62 passes for the Detroit Lions from 1959-72. He was beaten far more often than he succeeded. His ability to not let one mistake bleed into the next is what set him apart. It has to be the same for Allen.A corner learns to live alone, and hes got to believe in himself, just go out there and play, LeBeau said. Youve got to believe in yourself to play corner and I think (Allen) does. I have a lot of confidence in him. Hes got to produce and get out there and make some plays.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
