With Kobe sitting out tonight the Lakers were shorthanded, but used every player they have available to complete their last home game of the regular season.

Pau Gasol and Shannon Brown gave the Lakers that extra push to pull out a 106-100 victory against the Kings.

Shannon Brown was on fire  and his performance couldn’t come at a better time, even with his right thumb bothering him. “It hurts [but] I just drown it out,” said Brown, who finished with 24 points on 10-for-19 shooting in Bryant’s place.

“I’m trying to get a nice rhythm that’s going to be consistent through the playoffs.”

Gasol finished with a game-high 28 points as the Lakers swept the season series 4-0.

“Not having consistency is always something tough to deal with,” Brown said.

Vujacic had a season-high 13 points and D.J. Mbenga chipped in with nine.
