Bucks Stop Lakers

Chris Chambers/Getty Images(MILWAUKEE) -- Larry Sanders scored 21 points and pulled down 13 rebounds to lead the Milwaukee Bucks past the Los Angeles Lakers, 113-103 on Thursday at the Bradley Center.

The Bucks (35-36) are in firm control of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, but seemed to play with great energy against Los Angeles.

"Our attention to detail was a little bit better," Bucks coach Jim Boylan said. "Larry was great, really active. There was a lot of communicating going on. We've been struggling lately, and when you struggle, you can get into your own little world, and that's a bad place to be."

Kobe Bryant scored 30 points for the Lakers (37-36), who hold a half-game lead for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Bryant left the arena with a crutch after suffering what the team called a bone spur. 

Brandon Jennings added 20 points for the Bucks.
