The Lakers defeated the Sacramento Kings, 98-95, Wednesday night in an exhibition at Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas only after Kings rookie DeMarcus Cousins badly missed a three-point shot in the closing seconds.

Kobe Bryant, still recovering from right knee surgery, scored seven points on two-for-10 shooting.

Bryant is four for 28 from the field in three exhibitions.

Ron Artest led the Lakers with 18 points.

The Lakers are 1-2 in exhibition play.

They play again Saturday night at Staples Center against the Denver Nuggets.
