Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- With the way Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher were playing, even a healthy Tracy McGrady would have had great difficulty leading the Orlando Magic to a victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. O'Neal scored 30 points and grabbed 14 rebounds and Bryant chipped in 21 points, eight rebounds and six assists as the Lakers defeated the Magic for the sixth straight time at home, 107-84. Fisher scored 15 of his 19 points in the first half, including a 3-pointer from the right corner at the second-quarter buzzer, as the Lakers took a 50-42 into the break. "I like the response that some of the players came through," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "I like Fisher's game - he played great. ... Shaquille was solid inside, but Kobe had a strange ballgame for him, a lot of turnovers (8), but still in all he showed flashes." McGrady scored 21 points in the first half but suffered a lower back contusion late in the second quarter when he was accidentally elbowed by Bryant. McGrady did not play in the third as the Lakers extended their advantage to 80-69. McGrady came back for the beginning of fourth quarter but, in obvious pain, was ineffective and returned to the locker room after just two minutes. "I am a little sore," he said. "I got elbowed in the back. I am just hurting. Just have to go get ready for tomorrow's game (at Phoenix)." The Lakers shot 46 percent (37-of-80) and limited the Magic to 34.5 percent (30-of-87). "We played a much more aggressive game tonight," Jackson said. "We had loosee balls and were aggressive on the boards and in the lane. We had to work at our defense a little bit, we looked flat a few times in the game. (But) I was pleased with the effort. I think that we have something to build on, hopefully." "We played better today," said Bryant, whose teammate, O'Neal, did not speak with the media after the game. "Defensively, we gave a better effort. Got after loose balls a little bit more. It's just important to remember the energy and how hard we played and try to sustain that." Paced by O'Neal, Los Angeles, which has not lost at home to his former team since March 17, 1996, outrebounded Orlando, 52-36. The Lakers, who open a four-game road trip at Minnesota on Tuesday, avoided their first three-game losing streak with O'Neal in the lineup since April 21-26, 1999. "It's just one game," Jackson said. "We have to come back and make it just more than one game and repeat the effort." "It's important to forget about this game and just move on," Bryant said. "The important game of a trip is always the first game." Magic coach Doc Rivers said the Lakers needed a win. "They got a win, so you have to take your hat off to them," he added. "I thought they played well, but I liked our chances if we were healthy." Grant Hill scored 16 points and Darrell Armstrong 15 for Orlando, which dropped its fourth straight road contest. "I thought that we were playing with confidence, but we just came out a little sluggish in the third and they took advantage of that, and then we had to fight back," Armstrong said. "We did, we cut it to nine, but we just could not get any closer." Hampered by the flu, Mike Miller was held scoreless in 27 minutes after missing all eight of his field-goal attempts. "They needed the treatment," Rivers said. "Tracy needed the treatment of his back, there was no way you wanted him sitting there on a bad chair. Mike just had to go to sleep. Grant's foot got sore in the second quarter, he needed treatment. Tomorrow is going to be tough for him." "I am disappointed," Hill said. "I thought that we could have beaten them. T-Mac got hurt and Mike Miller was battling strep throat, but we just have to bounce back tomorrow and try to get a win against Phoenix." With the win, the Lakers improved to 10-15. En route to a third straight NBA title last season, they won their 10th game on November 21 and did not lose their 15th game until February 17. Los Angeles lost just 15 games during the entire 1999-2000 regular season. "I wouldn't say Merry Christmas to our fans yet, but it's a nice way to leave home and head out on the road against four opposing teams that are playing pretty good," said Rick Fox, who scored six points on 2-of-8 shooting. "We recognize the challenge ahead of us here, but it's a good way to leave home and go out on the road."
