Game Story

INGLEWOOD, California (Ticker) -- Glen Rice just needed a change of scenery to get healthy.

Two days after being shipped to the Los Angeles Lakers, Rice played his first game of the season and led his new team with 21 points in an easy 89-78 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

Rice missed the entire season with Charlotte as he recovered elbow surgery, watching from the sidelines as the hapless Hornets got off to a 5-12 start. On Wednesday, Rice and J.R. Reid were traded to the Lakers for guard Eddie Jones and forward Elden Campbell.

"The guys kept wanting me to shoot. I can do that," Rice said. "When you've got almost everyone on the team telling you to shoot, you've got to shoot."

"He did what we knew he was capable of doing," said Lakers coach Kurt Rambis. "The amazing thing is, even the shots that he missed, you think they're going to go in. When he gets in a little better shape, those shots will go in."

Entering to a loud ovation with 3:57 left in the first quarter, Rice showed some rust as he hit only 8-of-21 from the field and missed all four 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

"Everyone was asking me how my elbow was, and it felt fine. But my legs felt like I was running through mud," Rice added. "The most important thing was that I went out there and had a lot of fun with the guys. I think there's a lot of good things that are going to happen with this team."

Reid saw his first action as a Laker with 9:28 left in the second period, replacing Dennis Rodman. The outlandish forward did not return due to a right elbow injury, finishing with three rebounds in eight minutes.

"Nothing happened. It's just a little tendinitis in my elbow," Rodman said. "I didn't feel that I needed to go out there and play tonight. So I decided to just sit out and rest it."

Rodman was a bit more skeptical than his teammates with regard to the Lakers' future.

"It's too early to tell," he said. "You can't always tell how the team is really going to click until the end of the season and the beginning of the playoffs. Then you have what you have."

The Lakers posted their 10th straight win, including a 9-0 mark since Rodman arrived and Rambis was promoted to head coach. Rambis matched the best start by a rookie coach, equaling the nine straight wins Buddy Jeanette posted in 1947 when he began his tenure with the Baltimore Bullets.

"I was really going for that record," joked Rambis. "That was my goal."

Shaquille O'Neal scored all of his 20 points in the first half, helping Los Angeles to a comfortable 57-36 cushion. O'Neal grabbed 17 rebounds, notching his 15th double-double of the season.

Golden State, which missed a chance to reach .500 for the first time in more than two years, shot only 36 percent (27-of-75) from the field, hit just 21-of-37 free throws and committed 19 turnovers.

Erick Dampier had 12 points and nine rebounds and Adonal Foyle added 11 and 15 for the Warriors (9-11), who have not been at .500 since they were 1-1 on November 3, 1996.

"This was a chance for us to get to .500, and for us to step up," said Golden State coach P.J. Carlesimo. "The Lakers had something to do with that. We just didn't play aggressively enough."

The Warriors were limited to 13 points in the second quarter, when the Lakers turned a two-point lead into a 21-point bulge. With Los Angeles clinging to a 25-23 edge, Rice helped begin the Lakers' surge with a running jumper.

"I don't want to compare guys, but Glen Rice is known as a deadly shooter," O'Neal said. "There's probably only been a couple of deadly shooters ever known to this organization, and he'll probably be known as one of those."

O'Neal scored 12 points in the period, including a pair of free throws that sparked a key 9-2 spurt midway through the second. A jumper by Reid capped it for a 38-28 lead with 7:27 left.

The margin was 44-34 and the Lakers held the Warriors to only one field goal over the final four-plus minutes of the period. A dunk by O'Neal triggered a quarter-closing 13-2 burst, on which the newest Lakers put the finishing touches. Rice hit an 18-footer with 1:33 left for a 55-36 lead and Reid's two foul shots capped the run with 9.2 seconds left.

"Winning feels really good," said Reid, who had six points in 17 minutes. "It might have taken us a week to get one of these in Charlotte, but I'll take this one."

Golden State got no closer than 17 points in the third period, after which Los Angeles led, 75-52. In the fourth, the Warriors failed to draw closer than the final margin.

Kobe Bryant scored 18 points for the Lakers, who have won eight straight at home against the Warriors since April 12, 1994. They have lost only once in the last 12 meetings in the series.

Warriors leading scorer John Starks, who was limited to nine points of 3-of-10 shooting, was not impressed by the Lakers' talented core.

"This is a team we can beat. That's not the problemm," he said. "You've got to be aggressive with them. Tonight, we let them do what they wanted to do. You can't do that, you have to make it hard on them. Next time, we'll be a totally different team against them."
