Kobe Bryant scored 30 points while backup Jodie Meeks hit four threes en route to a season-high 24 as the struggling Los Angeles Lakers snapped a four-game slide with a 102-96 victory over the league-worst Washington Wizards.

The Lakers rebounded on Friday night from Thursday's 116-107 road loss to the New York Knicks and avoided their first five-game slide since April 2011.

Metta World Peace scored 13 points while Dwight Howard collected 12 with 14 rebounds in 32 foul-plagued minutes for the visiting Lakers (10-14), who regrouped after their 16-point cushion was sliced to three with five and a half minutes remaining in the game.

Cartier Martin poured in a season-best 21 points while Brazil's Nene and Martell Webster added 17 apiece for the Wizards (3-17), who have dropped four of five.

Meanwhile, Kevin Durant scored 31 points as the surging Oklahoma City Thunder held off the visiting Sacramento Kings 113-103 for their season-high 10th-straight win.

Isaiah Thomas erupted for all 25 of his points in the second half for the Kings, who stormed from 24 down in the fourth quarter to five late in the game before dropping their third in a row.

JJ Redick had 16 points, and Montenegin Nikola Vucevic added 12 with 17 rebounds as the Orlando Magic ended a four-game home slide while stopping the Golden State Warriors' five-game run 99-85.

Stephen Curry had 25 points, and David Lee added 24 with 15 rebounds for the Warriors, who fell to 5-1 on their seven-game road trip.

Joe Johnson scored 28 points, including the game-winning jumper at the second overtime buzzer, lifting the Brooklyn Nets over the visiting Detroit Pistons 107-105 and breaking a four-game home skid.

James Harden scored 21 points, Greg Smith had 20 off the bench and the Houston Rockets pulled away in the second half to cruise past the visiting Boston Celtics, who got 18 points from Paul Pierce while Rajon Rondo finished with 15 and 13 assists.

In other games, Toronto dropped the visiting Dallas Mavericks 95-74 and the Indiana Pacers stopped the visiting Philadelphia 76ers 95-85.
