(OAKLAND, Calif.) — In his first game back since injuring his left leg in late October, guard Steve Nash scored 12 points and had nine assists as the Los Angeles Lakers outlasted the Golden State Warriors in overtime Saturday night, 118-115.
Lakers Guard Kobe Bryant contributed 34 points and pulled down ten rebounds as Los Angeles came back from 14 points down in the fourth quarter to the tie the game 108. In overtime, Warriors guard Stephen Curry missed a game-tying three pointer with four seconds remaining, giving L.A. the victory.
The 38-year-old Nash had been sidelined since Oct. 31 with a small fracture in his left fibula after colliding with Portland Trail Blazers rookie point guard Damian Lillard.
