GAME RECAP

Shaquille O'Neal collected 24 points and 16 rebounds and powered the decisive second-quarter run along with Rick Fox as the Los Angeles Lakers narrowed the gap on the Pacific Division-leading Seattle SuperSonics with a 93-80 victory.

The Lakers put it away early with a 16-1 second-quarter run. After Dale Ellis pulled Seattle within 33-31 with a jumper with 9:13 to go, both O'Neal and Rick Fox went on tears, scoring nine and seven points, respectively, with the Lakers taking a 49-32 bulge with 3:04 remaining on O'Neal's dunk.

"I've been saying all year that if we play smart and play our game, we could pretty much do anything we want," O'Neal said. "We came out and we played well tonight and we kept it going. We kept our composure and played hard and started dominating."

Fox netted 18 points and a team-high seven assists and Kobe Bryant added 16 points for Los Angeles, which avoided being swept in the four-game season series and pulled within four games of Seattle with 16 remaining. O'Neal missed 11-of-15 free throws but the rest of his team picked up the slack by going 18-of-18.

Los Angeles has won seven straight at home and eight of its last nine overall.

Detlef Schrempf totaled 17 points and seven rebounds and Ellis scored 16 points off the bench for Seattle, which had a five-game winning streak snapped and fell to 2-3 in their last five road contests.

Eddie Jones netted 14 points and Robert Horry contributed just five but grabbed seven rebounds and four steals for the Lakers, who held a 44-32 rebounding edge and shot 48 percent (32-of-67) from the floor.

Gary Payton scored 13 points but his six assists were cancelled out by seven turnovers. He also committed a crucial blunder that led to five straight points by the Lakers. Los Angeles also turned 23 Seattle turnovers into 25 points.

Reserve Sam Perkins had 13 points and six assists for Seattle, which shot 41 percent (30-of-73) but made 7-of-16 three-pointers.

The Lakers led 52-38 at the break but went cold in the third quarter, scoring only four points over the first 8:20. The Sonics were unable to capitalize, however, and Los Angeles took a 59-48 cushion Bryant's three-pointer with 3:21 to go.

"Our guys played a terrific game," said Lakers coach Del Harris. "We had a little spell in the third quarter where we got a little happy with our lead, tried to make some difficult plays, but it didn't work for us. Other than that, I thought we played with some effort."

Seattle managed to lower the deficit to seven with 56 seconds left on a free throw by Vin Baker, who was otherwise a non-factor, before costly mistakes bumped the margin up to 12.

Trailing 61-54, the Sonics had the ball with the shot clock off and 12 seconds left in the third quarter. But Payton, instead of holding for the final shot, threw a pass that was intercepted by Nick Van Exel, who was fouled by Greg Anthony with 1.5 seconds remaining. Van Exel hit both free throws and Elden Campbell stole Anthony's ensuing inbounds pass, sinking a 36-foot heave for a 66-54 cushion after three quarters.

"The shot Elden made gave us a big boost. It got things started and picked us up," Bryant said. "Elden has a nice touch. It was a big three, especially in a game like this."

"We just had a bad game," said Payton. "We just didn't play well. We just won five games in a row. You guys say we had a bad game tonight, that doesn't mean anything."

Seattle lost for just the second time in 19 meetings with divisional foes. Its only other defeat was a 111-92 loss at Sacramento on January 26th.
