LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Lakers have taken a 2-0 in the NBA Finals, beating the Orlando Magic 101-96 in overtime Sunday night.

Kobe Bryant scored 29 points, and Pau Gasol had a big overtime and finished with 24 points and 10 rebounds as the Lakers moved within two wins of their 15th championship.

Rashard Lewis had 34 points and 11 rebounds, and Hedo Turkoglu had 22 points. But rookie Courtney Lee missed a layup at the buzzer that would have won it in regulation for the Magic, who have still never won a finals game.

Game 3 is Tuesday in Orlando.
