ONTARIO, Calif. -- Kobe Bryant scored 22 points, Shannon Brown hit the go-ahead 3-pointer in overtime, and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame Monta Ellis' NBA preseason-high 41 points in a 105-102 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Friday night.

Ron Artest made two big baskets in overtime for the Lakers, who used a 9-0 rally to tie it in the final two minutes of regulation. A little extra basketball was welcomed by a raucous crowd at Citizens Business Bank Arena in the Inland Empire east of Los Angeles.

Reggie Williams added 27 points for the Warriors, who wrapped up their first preseason under coach Keith Smart at 4-4. The Lakers also beat Golden State 120-99 Thursday night in San Diego.

Guard Stephen Curry sat out after tweaking his ankle one night earlier, which left Ellis free to take 30 shots while playing all 53 minutes. Ellis' burst surpassed Amare Stoudemire's 39 points for New York on Tuesday.

Bryant missed a jumper at the regulation buzzer to win it, but the Lakers took a 103-100 lead in overtime on Brown's 3-pointer with 1:21 left. Artest added a jumper with 11.2 seconds to play, and Golden State managed just two points in the final 3½ minutes of overtime.

After Los Angeles erased Golden State's 14-point lead in the third quarter, both teams used their starters in the final minutes. The Lakers went back to mostly reserves in overtime.

Brown scored 18 points while starting in place of Lamar Odom, who sat out with an injured thumb that isn't likely to affect him next week.

Derek Fisher scored 13 points and Pau Gasol added 12 for the Lakers, who left coach Phil Jackson at home for the second straight game with an apparent case of the flu. Assistant coach Brian Shaw ran the Lakers' bench both nights, perhaps a preview of next season if Jackson follows through on his annual threats to retire.

Bryant moved with no obvious limitations after sitting out Thursday night to rest. The two-time NBA Finals MVP scored 13 points in the first half and finished strong, despite missing the potential game-winner.

Ellis was on from the opening tip, hitting seven of his first eight shots for 14 first-quarter points. The quiet guard played less than 22 minutes in San Diego due to foul trouble, and Smart apparently was determined to let him run in their finale.

Ellis propelled Golden State to a 15-point lead in the first half and a 14-point advantage in the third quarter, but a Los Angeles unit consisting of Artest and four reserves opened the fourth quarter with a 16-6 run, tying it on Sasha Vujacic's free throws midway through the period.

Ellis pushed the Warriors to a nine-point lead, but Bryant hit two free throws and a layup while Los Angeles scored nine straight points, tying it on Brown's 3-pointer with 29.9 seconds left.

Brandan Wright missed a layup with six seconds left, but Bryant clanked his straightaway jumper at the regulation buzzer.
