DALLAS - Rajon Rondo is learning to play with his new Dallas teammates, and Dirk Nowitzki is trying to play through a stomach ailment that wont go away.They both look forward to when things will be more comfortable.Rondo scored a season-high 21 points in his fourth game with the Mavericks and Nowitzki added 14 to move up another spot on the NBAs scoring list in a 102-98 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.Rondo, traded from Boston last week, also had eight rebounds and seven assists in Dallas franchise-best fifth straight win against the Lakers in the regular season.We basically just have to communicate on the floor, said Rondo, who topped his season high of 20 against Oklahoma City last month when he was still with the Celtics. The game is still the same.Kobe Bryant missed his third straight game for Los Angeles to rest his sore body. He could return Sunday at home against Phoenix.The NBAs No. 3 career scorer watched from the Lakers bench while Nowitzki passed Elvin Hayes for eighth place, and 10th on the combined NBA-ABA list.The 36-year-old hit a long jumper on the first possession of the third quarter to surpass Hayes and asked out less than 4 minutes later, apparently winded from the effects of the illness after coming up short on a pair of open shots.Its been up and down for last couple of weeks so had to get it checked out this morning, said Nowitzki, the highest-scoring foreigner in league history at 27,322 points, now nine ahead of Hayes.Just hope to feel better soon, said the 7-foot German, who also had eight rebounds.Carlos Boozer scored 18 points for the Lakers, who lost again on the second night of a back-to-back after beating NBA-leading Golden State in the first game without Bryant.But they looked much better than the team that lost 140-106 last month in Dallas, when Bryant did play. It was the highest-scoring for the Mavericks in more than five years.We just want the win, Boozer said. Theres no such thing as a moral victory in the NBA.TIP-INSLakers: G Wayne Ellington made his third straight start in Bryants place and finished with 12 points, hitting a pair of 3-pointers to keep the outcome slightly in doubt in the final seconds. ... Los Angeles had three players with double-doubles in points and rebounds: Jordan Hill (12 points, 10 rebounds), Wesley Johnson (11 and 10) and Ed Davis (10 and 11).Mavericks: Nowitzki tied old teammate and close friend Steve Nash by playing in his 1,217th career game, 27th on the career list. They played about 400 regular-season games together over six seasons in Dallas. The 40-year-old Nash is still with the Lakers but not expected to play in the final season of his contract because of back problems. ... Tyson Chandler had 15 points and 12 rebounds, his 14th double-double.WATCH OUT, KOBEBryant, who was in street clothes at the end of the bench, shared a brief moment with Nowitzki after the game.

Nowitzkis in his 17th season, Bryant his 19th.LONG-RANGE RUNSNick Young, who had 15 points on five 3-pointers, hit a pair from long range about a minute apart to help the Lakers get within five midway through the fourth quarter.But Dallas Charlie Villanueva, enjoying an expanded role since the Rondo trade sent Brandan Wright to the Celtics, hit two big 3s to spark a fourth-quarter run that put away the game. The 10th-year player finished with 13 points.ANOTHER AILMENTLike Nowitzki, Monta Ellis was questionable before the game. Playing with an unspecified illness, Ellis finished with 15 points, seven assists and three steals. He was sweating a little more than normal, coach Rick Carlisle said.

NEW YORK -- The sons of former big leaguers Lenny Dykstra and Charlie Leibrandt were among the players selected Friday during the second day of the Major League Baseball draft. Luke Dykstra, an infielder at Westlake High School in suburban Los Angeles, was drafted in the seventh round by Atlanta. Hes the second son of the former All-Star outfielder to be drafted; infielder Cutter Dykstra was a second-round pick by Milwaukee in 2008 and is currently in Washingtons system. "Hes just like his dad," Braves scouting director Tony DeMacio told MLB.com, referring to Luke Dykstra. "He plays with his hair on fire." Florida State left-hander Brandon Leibrandt went in the sixth round to Philadelphia. He was 4-1 with a 1.83 ERA this season, but missed several weeks with a severely bruised left leg. "The Phillies were a little bit of a surprise," Leibrandt said in a statement released by Florida State. "I didnt think they were going to be one of the front-runners, but they called me at the start of the sixth round, we had a good talk and the rest is history." Leibrandt got the news while he was with his family, including his father, who won 140 games over 14 major league seasons. "Out of everyone, I think my mom was the most excited," Brandon Leibrandt said. "She went a little crazy, so I had to calm her down. But overall, I just couldnt have asked for anything more."

After having no picks in the first two rounds, Baltimore made eight selections Friday, including Notre Dame right-hander Pat Connaughton, who also started at guard for the Fighting Irish basketball team. After averaging 13.8 points and 7.1 rebounds on the court, the 6-foot-5 Connaughton went 3-5 with a 3.92 ERA in 62 innings on the mound for Notre Dame. "Its a dream come true to be able to play at a place like Notre Dame and have it pay off," Connaughton told the schools website. "When I saw my name, I was surprised and excited all at the same time. I was pumped that its an East Coast team and a great organization to learn and develop in." The Orioles had forfeited their first two picks after signing free agents Nelson Cruz and Ubaldo Jimenez during the off-season. Their first selection came in the third round with Florida high school lefty Brian Gonzalez, who went 90th overall. Miami right-hander Javier Salas, who pitched the second perfect game in Hurricanes history this season, went in the 10th round to Milwaukee. The draft will be completed with rounds 11-40 on Saturday via conference calls with all 30 teams. Houston led off for the third straight year Thursday night, taking California high school lefty Brady Aiken with the first overall pick. ' ' '
