AUBURN HILLS, MI (AP) -

Rodney Stuckey scored 34 points, and the Detroit Pistons overcame a tying shot by Kobe Bryant at the end of regulation Tuesday night, beating the Los Angeles Lakers 88-85 in overtime.

Bryant, who had tied the game at the buzzer to force the extra session, missed from 3-point range in the final seconds of overtime.

Metta World Peace came up with the ball and dribbled back toward the top of the key, but his last-ditch turnaround missed as well.

Andrew Bynum had 30 points and 14 rebounds for the Lakers.

Bryant finished with 22 points on 8-of-26 shooting.

He started the game with black mask protecting his injured nose but switched to a clear one while struggling through the first half.
