Kobe returns to hand Celtics another loss

Kobe Bryant returned from his one-game suspension and had 43 points, eight rebounds and eight assists to help the Los Angeles Lakers beat Boston 111-98 Wednesday night and send the Celtics to a franchise-record 13th consecutive loss. Bryant was suspended by the NBA after whacking - accidentally, he said - San Antonios Manu Ginobili in the face on Sunday.
