SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher hit back-to-back 3-pointers during an 8-2 run in the final minute and the Lakers held on for a 111-110 victory over the Utah Jazz that put Los Angeles on the verge of clinching the Western Conference playoff series.

Williams scored 28 and Kyle Korver added a career playoff-high 23 points for the Jazz.
