Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Lakers were more than ready to shrug off a rare defeat and Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant were more than the Detroit Pistons could handle.

O'Neal scored 35 points and grabbed 11 rebounds and Bryant added 25 points as the Lakers started a new winning streak with a 110-82 rout.

After having their league season-high 19-game winning streak ended by lowly Washington on Thursday, the Lakers retaliated with a vengeance for their 20th win in 21 games.

"For the most part, I think we carried the type of game plan we wanted," Los Angeles coach Phil Jackson said. "We kept the pace of the game the way we wanted, got the ball into Shaquille and worked the offense the way we wanted to."

The Pistons managed to hold O'Neal below 40 points, but just barely. The 7-2 center had scored 40 in his last two games and went 15-of-24 from the field.

"It was good to bounce back from last night and play so well tonight," O'Neal said. "We made their superstars take a lot of jumpers and they weren't hitting them, plus we held them to one shot and they weren't getting offensive rebounds."

Bryant made 12-of-21 shots and added eight rebounds and six assists as the Lakers improved to 2-1 on their five-game road trip, which continues with Sunday's nationally televised game at New York.

Detroit's Jerry Stackhouse scored 18 points but shot 4-of-16 and leading scorer Grant Hill was held to 12 points, more than 14 below his season average. The Pistons shot 35 percent (35-of-82) and tied the season low for points in losing for only the second time in six games under interim coach George Irvine.

"We didn't pick a very good night to play poorly," Irvine said. "We didn't get good performances from hardly anybody. If you're going to play the Lakers, we have to be at the top of your game and we weren't."

The Lakers led by 19 entering the fourth quarter but saw their lead cut to 85-70 when Hill sank 1-of-2 free throws with 8:15 to play. Los Angeles responded with a 15-0 run to put away the game as O'Neal and Bryant combined for 10 points and Brian Shaw's 3-pointer capped the surge with 5:08 remaining.

Glen Rice scored 19 points for Los Angeles, which shot 49 percent (45-of-92), held a 49-45 rebounding edge and dished out 31 assists.

After falling behind early in Thursday's loss, Los Angeles grabbed a 22-19 lead after one quarter as Rice went 4-for-6 from the field and scored 11 points.

"We wanted to start off quick, not like we did last night," O'Neal said. "It was still a little slow, but we were able to keep the game at our pace. We didn't let Detroit get into their run-and-gun."

O'Neal took charge in the second quarter as he made 8-of-11 shots and scored 19 points. The Lakers went on a 14-5 run to open the period as O'Neal had nine points and Bryant five, including a 17-foot jumper with 9:08 left which allowed the Lakers to build 36-24 advantage.

"It's just that Shaq is too big," Detroit center Mikki Moore said. "He is bigger than most of the 7-footers who are in this league. To be that big and have a nice touch like that around the basket, it's basically unstoppable."

Los Angeles shot 50 percent (23-of-46) in the first half and held a 54-42 lead. Detroit shot 38 percent (15-of-39) over the first 24 minutes, including 7-of-22 in the first quarter.

The Lakers extended their cushion to 74-55 when O'Neal completed a three-point play with 5:05 to play in the third quarter. O'Neal scored nine points and Bryant added eight in the period.

"We just took care of business tonight," Bryant said. "We did a really good job of keeping them (Hill and Stackhouse) out of the lane. That's been killing us the last few games, guys driving down out throats. We knew if we let those two do that, they would be on the free-throw line all night."

Christian Laettner and Moore scored 12 points each for the Pistons, who committed 18 turnovers and made only 2-of-15 3-point shots.
