CHICAGO (AP) -Sasha Vujacic scored 19 points, Lamar Odom added 17 points and 16 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Chicago Bulls 103-91 Tuesday night.
Slowed by a groin injury, Kobe Bryant scored 18 points for the Lakers, but was a non-factor for long stretches against the team he targeted as a possible destination during the offseason.
Vujacic scored nine in the fourth quarter, and Luke Walton and Andrew Bynum finished with 12 points apiece. Bynum also grabbed 10 rebounds.
Luol Deng led Chicago with 26 points, and Kirk Hinrich finished with 17 points and eight assists. Andres Nocioni scored 14 points, but hurt his foot late in the game.
Kings 106, Nets 101
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - John Salmons scored a career-high 31 points and passed to teammate Francisco Garcia for a decisive 3-pointer to lead Sacramento.

New Jersey, which has lost six of its last seven games and eight of its last 10 at home, was led by Richard Jefferson's 36 points. Vince Carter scored 15 points and Sean Williams had eight blocked shots, tying a team rookie record set in 1981 by Mike Gminski.
Raptors 80, Clippers 77
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Chris Bosh scored 12 of his 24 points in the third quarter to help Toronto take the lead for good.
