Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Shaquille O'Neal had a less active 29th birthday than his last one but it was more than enough for the Golden State Warriors.

O'Neal celebrated with 26 points and 17 rebounds as the Los Angeles Lakers picked up their second win over the Warriors in three days with a 97-85 victory.

One year ago, O'Neal scored a career-high 61 points along with 23 rebounds against the Los Angeles Clippers on his 28th birthday. On Tuesday in front of 20,181 -- the largest crowd for a Golden State game -- he was not quite as fearsome.

"I really wasn't looked to score 61 points," O'Neal said. "They were doubling me in the first half so I was just trying to get the ball out to Horace (Grant) and (Brian) Shaw a few times. I don't have to score 61 points every night for this team to win."

Kobe Bryant scored 29 points on 7-of-17 shooting and Grant added 15 and nine rebounds for Los Angeles, which defeated Golden State, 110-95, on Sunday.

"I was impatient a little bit," Bryant said. "I was a little dizzy in the first half -- not getting any sleep was catching up to me. I came in at halftime, took a few deep breaths and recuperated a little bit."

The Lakers broke open a close game by scoring eight of the final 10 points of the first half for a 43-38 lead.

A 3-pointer by Mookie Blaylock pulled Golden State within 54-49 1:44 into the third quarter. The Lakers went on a 8-0 run, including four free throws by Bryant, for a 62-49 lead with 5:42 to go.

Los Angeles held a 71-64 lead after three quarters and scored the first six points of the final period for a 77-64 lead as Golden State missed its first eight shots.

Blaylock's 3-pointer with 7:24 left halted the drought but the Warriors got no closer than seven points thereafter.

"I wasn't totally happy, but we're glad to get a win," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "I thought our first half looked like we couldn't get started shooting wise. Our defense was adequate but I thought we didn't shoot the ball well."

All five starters scored in double figures as Rick Fox scored 12 points and Shaw added 11 for Los Angeles, which shot 46 percent (35-of-77).

"A win is a win," O'Neal said. "We should have gotten it over earlier, but we did what we had to do to get the win."

Blaylock scored a season-high 25 points and Antawn Jamison added 21 after going scoreless in Sunday's meeting. Rookie Marc Jackson suffered through 2-of-15 shooting and finished with six points and four rebounds.

"I love this game to death and I tell people that I could care less about not scoring any points," Jamison said. "The thing that hurts me is losing all the time. I know what I can do, people know what I can do and it's just a matter of going out there and winning basketball games."

Bob Sura and Erick Dampoer scored eight points apiece for the Warriors, who have lost five in a row at home. Sura added a season-high 10 rebounds.

"I thought on defense we did a good job," Golden State coach Dave Cowens said. "We were able to get some turnovers. We forced 20 of them, so that was good."

The Lakers return home for a four-game homestand against Toronto, San Antonio, Seattle and Boston.

"It's good to go back home and sleep in my own bed and eat my own food -- and see all of my wives," O'Neal joked.
