TORONTO – Lamar Odom scored 19 points, and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Toronto Raptors 102-91 Wednesday night despite Kobe Bryant’s lowest-scoring game of the season.

Bryant sat out the fourth quarter and finished with 11 points for the Lakers, who put the game out of reach by outscoring Toronto 31-18 in the third quarter.

Luke Walton added a season-high 13 points and six rebounds for the Lakers, who have won three straight.

Los Angeles won at Milwaukee on Tuesday night and didn’t get to its hotel until 3 a.m. But the Lakers outrebounded Toronto 48-33 and shot 54 percent, compared to 41 for Toronto.

Chris Bosh had 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Raptors, who fell to 3-17.

Odom had nine points in the third quarter, including a 3-pointer that capped a 10-2 run to start the period. Sasha Vujacic’s 3-pointer, Walton’s three-point play and Smush Parker’s 3-pointer gave Los Angeles a 19-point lead with 1:22 left in the third.

Devean George’s 3-pointer gave Los Angeles a 22-point lead, its biggest lead of the game, with 6:22 to play.

Bosh’s two free throws and Mike James’ jumper cut the lead to seven with 54 seconds left, but Von Wafer made a dunk after a missed free throw by Walton.

Bryant’s previous season low was 17 points on Nov. 11 at Philadelphia. His basket at the buzzer at halftime gave Los Angeles a 50-44 lead.

Notes: Raptors point guard Alvin Williams underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee this week, the team announced Wednesday. Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., removed bone spurs and cleaned up scar tissue from Williams’ knee on Tuesday. Williams, who had microfracture surgery last year on the same knee, is out indefinitely. He missed all of last season and has played in just one game this year. … After a 1-15 November, Toronto opened this month with wins at Atlanta and New Jersey but has since lost two straight.
