Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Shaquille O'Neal left early. So did Michael Jordan. But Kobe Bryant kept playing to the end.

Bryant led a furious comeback with 27 points, including a tying, flying tip-in at the regulation buzzer and a thunderous follow dunk in overtime as the Los Angeles Lakers dealt the Golden State Warriors a demoralizing 106-102 defeat.

The Lakers trailed by 28 points midway through the second period and O'Neal was ejected after shoving Warriors guard Bimbo Coles two minutes later. That left the spotlight to Bryant, who scored just two points in an awful first half.

"It wasn't that tough to watch from the locker room becuase I knew my guys wouldn't give up," O'Neal said.

"I just wanted to relax," Bryant said. "We were rushing. We just had to calm down."

Bryant took over in the fourth quarter as he singlehandedly rallied the Lakers. He scored 14 points, including a 3-pointer that cut the deficit to 88-87 with 4.2 seconds remaining.

Coles was fouled and made both free throws and Jordan, a guest of Warriors assistant Rod Higgins, made his way down the runway. Golden State fouled Glen Rice before he could shoot a 3-pointer.

Rice made the first free throw and intentionally missed the second. Often billed as the successor to Jordan, Bryant flew in from behind the top of the key and got a hand on the loose ball, softly tipping it in at the buzzer for a 90-90 tie.

"I saw the ball going to the baseline after Robert (Horry) got his long arm on it," Bryant said. "I was just lucky it went in."

That seemed to deflate the Warriors, who were outscored 9-1 to open the overtime. Bryant punctuated that run with a one-handed follow jam that made it 99-91 with 2:50 to play.

Golden State fought back within 104-102 with 40 seconds left on a 3-pointer by rookie Antawn Jamison, who had an awful sequence seconds earlier. He missed two free throws, then after grabbing the rebound of rookie Tyronn Lue's second missed foul shot, lost his balance and threw the ball underneath his own basket to Robert Horry, who put it in.

Rice missed a shot, but Warriors guard John Starks dribbled into the left corner and had his jumper blocked by Travis Knight. Two free throws by Horry sealed it for the Lakers, who have won 12 of their last 14 meetings with the Warriors.

"It's unbelievable," Lakers coach Kurt Rambis said. "They showed great heart, great character, tremendous confidence. Kobe lives for games like this. It's what he dreams of. It's what he thinks of. If I ask Kobe if he could get a game like that every game, he would say, `Yes.' His coach wouldn't like it but he would love it."

"We let down defensively on them and they got back into the game," Starks said. "As a team, you have to understand that they are going to pick it up and you are going to have to pick it up with them. They stayed in it. They fought back and stayed with it. You have to stay aggressive."

The Warriors (18-23) did more than blow a 28-point lead. They may have blown their season. Having won four of their last five games, they simply gave away a chance to move into a three-way tie with Seattle (19-22) and Sacramento (19-22) for the final playoff berth in the Western Conference. Golden State visits Sacramento on Thursday.

"I've been in games like this before," Warriors veteran forward Terry Cummings. "The news is when they are over, you have something to think about. With us, we don't have a lot of time to think about it."

Horry had 17 points and 10 rebounds and J.R. Reid added 15 points for the Lakers (27-16), who are one game behind Houston (27-14) for fourth place in the West.

"The game was fun after we started coming backm," Bryant said. "It wasn't much fun before that."

Starks scored 20 points and Terry Cummings added 17 for the Warriors, who have wasted 11 fourth-quarter leads this season.

"I think this is more of an internal thing with us as a team," Cummings said. "We lost our composure. We didn't do a lot of simple things that got us the lead, the little bitty things like keeping everybody's head in the game. It's very disappointing."

Golden State scored 39 of the first 50 points and still held a 47-19 lead on a tip-in by Donyell Marshall with 5:04 left in the second quarter.

After two Lakers baskets, Horry got in Coles' face and Coles shoved him, drawing a technical foul. The 315-pound O'Neal pushed the 182-pound Coles from behind, drawing a technical of his own. Coupled with a technical from earlier in the period, O'Neal was ejected.

"I was protecting my teammates," O'Neal said. "We go to dinner together, we go shopping together, we go to war together. They came back and it was about time."

"That will fire you up anytime," Rice said. "Guys on this team will protect our backs. We're together. It showed us something. You lose a guy like Shaq, it shows our character. It's definitely significant to be able to play without the big fella."

Los Angeles closed the quarter with a 10-0 burst and cut the deficit to 49-33 at halftime. Golden State rebuilt the lead to 73-53 entering the fourth quarter.

Rice had 14 points on 4-of-19 shooting and a season-high 12 rebounds for the Lakers, who shot 47 percent (37-of-79) from the field and held a 46-36 rebounding advantage, overcoming 27 turnovers.

Chris Mills scored 15 points and Coles contributed 12 and seven assists for the Warriors, who shot just under 46 percent (42-of-92) and committed 22 turnovers.

"The enthusiasm and aggressivness got away from us," Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "To the Lakers' credit, they took over. They are down 20 points on the road, playing without one of their best players and they just continued to compete."
