GAME RECAP

Chris Webber had 31 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists and fueled a second-half burst as the Washington Wizards bounced back from their worst loss of the season with a 96-86 victory over the struggling Los Angeles Lakers.

Calbert Cheaney scored 21 points and Rod Strickland added 19 and eight assists for the Wizards, who suffered an embarrassing 103-77 home loss to the lowly Dallas Mavericks on Saturday and won for the third time in four games.

"It was a collective effort, just like the other night when we lost collectively," Wizards coach Bernie Bickerstaff said. "The energy was there."

"I'm glad we bounced back tonight," Webber said. "We needed this. But we need Thursday's too (against New York). I don't want to make too much out of it. We're not in it yet."

Webber scored 11 points in the third quarter, including seven in a 15-4 burst that spilled into the final period and gave the Wizards a 78-67 lead with just under 11 minutes to play. The Lakers got no closer than eight points thereafter and finished 3-3 on their six-game road trip.

Shaquille O'Neal had 28 points and 15 rebounds and Eddie Jones added 19 and 11 for Los Angeles, which is 5-7 since sending four players to the All-Star Game and dropped into a tie with San Antonio for the third-best record in the Western Conference at 39-18.

"We didn't finish the fourth quarter well in the last two games," Lakers coach Del Harris said. "It was a tough trip. Being 3-3 is not what we hoped for. We need to pull together for Indiana (at home). It will be a challenge."

It was the 3,000th game in franchise history for the Wizards, who began as the Chicago Packers in the 1961-62 season and have been known as the Chicago Zephyrs, Baltimore Bullets, Capital Bullets and Washington Bullets. They left Chicago for the Baltimore-Washington area in 1963 and have an all-time record of 1,408-1,592.

A hook by Webber snapped a 63-63 tie with 2:57 left in the third quarter and gave Washington the lead for good. He followed with a jumper and free throw around a jumper by Kobe Bryant to make it 68-65 with 2:01 remaining.

Cheaney hit a runner and Bryant scored again before Strickland found Darvin Ham for a dunk. Webber's jumper with 4.5 seconds left in the period gave Washington a 74-67 bulge. Cheaney began the fourth quarter with a jumper and Strickland made a layup to cap the spurt at 78-67 with 10:54 left.

Two free throws by Webber gave the Wizards their largest lead at 92-79 with 2:20 to go. The Lakers emptied the bench and got no closer than eight points.

"You take the good with the bad and try to get better," said Strickland. "This was definitely a big win but we need to string a bunch of them now if we want to make the playoffs."

Tracy Murray scored 15 points for Washington, which shot 48 percent (34-of-71) from the field while holding Los Angeles to 40.5 percent (34-of-84). The Wizards were 25-of-29 from the line, while the Lakers were just 12-of-22.

"We made our free throws," Bickerstaff said. "That was the difference in the basketball game. Now we need to put some wins together and develop a killer instinct to put teams away in the end."

Robert Horry scored 17 points, Rick Fox added 11 and Derek Fisher handed out 10 assists for the Lakers, who held a 49-37 rebounding advantage.

"We didn't play smart," O'Neal said. "We shot low-percentage shots. We need to go to the hole more and can't shoot 30 three-pointers (actually 17) and expect to win. We made a lot of stupid mistakes and if we don't play smart, this is the outcome."

Bryant's baskets during Washington's decisive run were his only points of the game. The teenage All-Star guard shot 2-of-7 and is shooting just 27 percent (14-of-54) in his last five games, although he has been bothered by an ear infection.

"Kobe was sick tonight," Harris said. "We sent him here on a train instead of the plane. He was not himself."

Strickland scored 10 points in the first quarter, but the Lakers grabbed a 25-24 lead behind eight points from O'Neal. Two free throws and a slam by Webber and a jumper by Harvey Grant closed the first half and gave the Wizards a 49-44 lead.

A dunk by Webber extended the lead to 57-46 with 9:29 to play in the third quarter, but Jones scored eight points and O'Neal six in a 15-4 burst that gave Los Angeles a 61-61 tie with 4:52 to go.

"The Wizards' pick-and-roll was a beast tonight," Horry said. "They used it the whole game and killed us."
