Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- On January 29, the Los Angeles Lakers blew out the Atlanta Hawks by 34 points on the road. On January 29, the Lakers had Shaquille O'Neal.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 32 points as the Hawks built a big lead and held on to defeat the O'Neal-less Lakers, 93-90, for their first win in Los Angeles since March 19, 1989, a span of 11 consecutive losses.

In the contest 17 days ago, the Lakers scored a season-high 127 points and the 7-2 O'Neal sat out the fourth quarter after scoring 23 points in 26 minutes.

In this one, the Lakers never led after 2-0 and their starting frontcourt combined for just 16 points in 82 minutes. Atlanta, which opened a season-high six-game road trip, outscored Los Angeles in the paint, 48-28.

"It makes a big difference (without O'Neal) because we are not real big and physical anyhow," Hawks coach Lon Kruger said. "It was nice not having to contend with him."

Atlanta led, 70-55, entering the fourth quarter -- the fewest points the Lakers had scored through three periods this season -- and 83-68 after Ira Newble hit a pair of free throws with 5:57 left.

Los Angeles came storming back and got within 91-89 on Devean George's 3-pointer with 25 seconds left. But Los Angeles let 20 seconds elapse before fouling Abdur-Rahim, who hit a pair from the line to ice the game.

"We didn't want to give their free-throw shooters a look," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "We said we'd foul inside the seven-second mark. That's the way we wanted to play it and the guys (had) the right idea."

Abdur-Rahim was 11-of-22 from the field and 10-of-10 from the line, adding seven rebounds and six assists. Abdur-Rahim has made 53-of-58 free throws (91 percent) in his last five games.

"They were pretty tough for us tonight," Jackson said. "Their interior game swamped us inside. Not just Rahim but they had multiple opportunities inside that really hurt us."

Jason Terry chipped in 11 points and DerMarr Johnson -- who was eight when the Hawks last won in Los Angeles -- and Newble added 10 points each.

"Everybody knows that Shaq didn't play, but I think we came out defensively tonight and really played aggressive," Terry said. "We didn't allow them to get comfortable in their half-court sets and then when they made the run at us, we were very resilient."

The Hawks have won four of their last five games -- their best five-game stretch this season.

"Winning is fun," Abdur-Rahim said. "It builds confidence and we've got a lot of young guys that we're depending (on) who have not had a lot of success in the league, so it's just all those things combined."

Kobe Bryant scored 21 points and 10 assists and Derek Fisher added 18 points for Los Angeles, which fell to 2-2 since O'Neal has sat out to nurse an arthritic big toe. Overall, the Lakers are just 7-5 without O'Neal this season.

"We did not execute like we normally do," Bryant said. "We didn't play hard. The first two quarters or three quarters we just didn't play hard, and there is just no excuse for that."

Los Angeles, which had a two-game winning streak snapped, shot 58 percent (50-of-87) in the teams' prior matchup but was limited to 42 percent (31-of-74) on Friday. The Lakers made just 7-of-21 shots from the arc and 21-of-34 from the line.

"Our defense was pretty solid," Kruger said. "We were making them earn their points. We weren't giving them easy looks. We weren't giving them easy transition points and no easy shots inside."

Atlanta converted just 43 percent (34-of-79), including 14 percent (2-of-14) from the arc, but sank 92 percent (23-of-25) from the line.

The Hawks held the Lakers to 32 percent (10-of-31) shooting in the first half en route to a 46-35 lead at the break. Atlanta outscored Los Angeles in the paint, 26-4, through two quarters.

Atlanta, which improved to just 6-21 on the road, took its biggest lead at 69-50 on a dunk by Dion Glover with 1:56 left in the third quarter.

"They played better than we did tonight," Jackson said. "They got to loose balls and created situations for themselves. You can't discredit your opponent. Atlanta is not a team that is feared around the league, but they're still playing good basketball. They had momentum coming in here and we should have known that."

Since a December 21 loss at Memphis, the Lakers have lost to lowly Chicago twice, Golden State, Denver and Miami.
