Spurs outlast Kobe's Lakers, 102-95 in Tinseltown.
Kawhi Leonard (19 points) pestered the Lakers captain (6-21) into tough shot attempts all game long, despite a pair that bounced in to keep his Lakers alive late in this close contest.
Spurs began the final period on an 8-0 run and Tony Parker (20 points) nailed a late 3-PTer via a stellar pass from Tim Duncan and then made two free throws to seal the victory. Big man Roy Hibbert slammed in 22 points for his new Lakers team and promising rookie D'Angelo Russell fared decently with 11pts/7asts, though he missed some go-ahead shots in crunch time.
Sixth Man-u Ginobili chipped in 12&7 and Tim Duncan had 11.
