Update: The Lakers begin a brief trip by playing the team that gave them a first-round playoff scare last season. Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol each had 21 points as the Lakers defeated the Thunder, 101-94, last month at Staples Center. Recently acquired center Kendrick Perkins will not play against the Lakers because of a sprained left knee. The Lakers conclude the trip Tuesday at Minnesota.
