Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- A rare sellout crowd at Philips Arena came to watch Shaq and Kobe. They got plenty of both. Shaquille O'Neal scored 31 points in three quarters and Kobe Bryant took over with 15 in the fourth as the Los Angeles Lakers rolled to a 108-91 victory over the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks drew just their second capacity crowd of the season and most of the 19,280 fans cheered O'Neal's thunderous dunks and Bryant's terrific shooting display in the fourth period. "I love Atlanta," said O'Neal, who was 11-of-19 from the field and 9-of-13 from the line. "This is a nice crowd to us." O'Neal powered inside for five dunks in the first quarter and scored 21 points in the first half. He added 10 more in the third quarter, including two baskets in a 14-7 run to end the period, giving the Lakers a 79-72 lead. But Bryant made sure that O'Neal rested the entire final period, hitting six straight shots, including three 3-pointers, to increase the lead to 99-80 with 5:01 left. The crowd reacted to Bryant's shooting binge with chants of "MVP, MVP." After missing his last 3-point attempt with 4:20 remaining, Bryant left the game with 28 points and 10 rebounds. "It's a weird feeling, but a good feeling," Bryant said of the crowd support. "The MVP stuff, I really don't concern myself with those accolades." But O'Neal agrees with the Atlanta fans. "I think he's the MVP, hands down," O'Neal said. "It's good having that guy on our team." Glenn Robinson led the Hawks with 22 points. Jason Terry had a career-high 16 assists, but also committed six turnovers and was 3-of-13 from the field. "At times, it felt like it was a road game," Robinson said. "We will get things turned around here. We will get the fans to our side no matter what team comes in here." Atlanta's previous sellout was for a March 8 game against Toronto, which was followed by a gospel concert. The Hawks had won seven of their previous 11 games and beat the Lakers in Los Angeles, 95-83 on November 12. However, that was with O'Neal out of the lineup. It didn't take long for the 7-1 superstar to make his presence felt on Tuesday. Drawing oohs and aahs from the crowd, O'Neal dunked five times and converted three free throws in the first 9:47, helping the Lakers to a 24-21 lead. But Ira Newble came off the bench and scored 10 points to spark a 19-7 run to start the second quarter. Theo Ratliff capped it with a baseline jumper, giving the Hawks their biggest lead at 47-37 with 4:45 left. The Lakers scored 11 of the next 15 points to close the quarter, including two baskets by O'Neal and a 3-pointer by Robert Horry. The game was tied at 65-65 with 4:32 left in the third quarter when Horry made a pair of free throws to ignite a 14-7 run. O'Neal powered inside for two baskets and Horry closed the quarter with two free throws, giving the Lakers a 79-72 lead. Bryant made the fourth quarter his personal stage, starting his 15-point barrage with a jumper from the right side with 9:43 left. He stole the ball from Terry at the top of the key and soared for a tomahawk dunk to increase the lead to 87-76 with 8:16 remaining. The superstar guard then hit a shot from the right elbow and two 3-pointers in a span of 1:10, giving the Lakers a 95-76 advantage. He ended the streak with another 3-pointer from the left corner with 5:01 left. "I was feeling it," Bryant said. "I took it uponm myself to get it done and it's always good to give the big guy a rest." That's all Lakers coach Phil Jackson appeared concerned with, especially with his team heading to Houston on Wednesday for another ballyhooed O'Neal-Yao Ming matchup. "It's always good to rest some players with back-to-back games," Jackson said. "We had a tough game Sunday in San Antonio and we have a tough one in Houston." But O'Neal downplayed his showdown with Yao. "If you have to tell me it's a rivalry, then it isn't," O'Neal said. "But they're in the eighth playoff spot, so they'll be pumped up." The Lakers are in the seventh playoff spot, 2 1/2 games ahead of Houston and one game behind Utah. "They're the defending champs and obviously Shaq and Kobe are a great duo," Hawks coach Terry Stotts said. "They pick their spots well. They're both very patient with their games. And, of course, they make their teammates better. That's the best compliment I can pay them."
