Lakers take 3-1 lead with another OT win

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The Los Angeles Lakers have taken a 3-1 lead the NBA finals, rallying to beat the Orlando Magic 99-91 in overtime to move within one win of a 15th championship.

Derek Fisher hit the tying 3-pointer with 4.6 seconds left in regulation Thursday night, then made the go-ahead 3 with 31 seconds left as the Lakers won their second overtime game of the series.

Kobe Bryant had 32 points, eight assists and seven rebounds for the Lakers, who can wrap it up Sunday in Game 5 here.

Dwight Howard had 16 points, 21 rebounds and a finals-record nine blocked shots, but he was just 6 of 14 from the free throw line as the Magic failed to put away the game in regulation.
