(Best Syndication) The Lakers season may be winding down as they are being out-gunned by the Phoenix Suns. Kobe Bryant was held to just three points in the forth quarter, while Suns Amare Stoudemire scored 24 points in the game. Steve Nash finished with 23 assists, just one shy of the Magic Johnson NBA record.

The Lakers lost to the Suns 113-100 Sunday right here at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. In the second quarter the Lakers tried to make it a game. Kobe, in a crowd hit a bucket, and then Sasha Vujacic stole the ball on the inbound pass to score within just a few seconds of Kobe.

But it wasn’t enough as Phoenix still led by seven at the break. Kobe finished with a team high of 31 points, as he scored his last basket with ten minutes left in the forth. The Lakers defense was lacking in the forth quarter.

The Lakers trail in the series, three games to one. Steve Nash said "It wasn't to be, but that's all right. Two guys have gotten more than me, and they deserve it."

When asked if the Lakers can still pull it off, Bryant said "I definitely think we can. We've been a resilient team all year." Said Lakers coach Phil Jackson: "I'm not going to count them out." Stoudemire disagreed.
