Lakers:124 Suns:112 Lakers Leads 2-0. LOS ANGELES(AP) Pau Gasol scored 14 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter, Kobe Bryant had 21 points and 13 assists, and the Los Angeles Lakers roared away in the final minutes for a 124-112 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night to claim a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference finals. Ron Artest scored 18 points for the Lakers, who won their eighth straight playoff game and moved halfway to a tantalizing NBA finals showdown with the Boston Celtics, who lead Orlando 2-0 in the East. The Lakers remained unbeaten at home in the postseason despite a much-improved effort from the Suns, who lost the opener by 21 points. Phoenix tied it heading to the final period of Game 2, but Gasol and Bryant flawlessly led the Lakers to another high-scoring victory. Game 3 is Sunday night in Phoenix.
