Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal and the Los Angeles Lakers are playing so well, they may even get some grudging respect from the Sacramento Kings. Bryant scored 34 points and O'Neal added 32 and 16 rebounds as the Lakers continued their march to the postseason with a convincing 117-104 victory over the rival Kings. "Nothing special that I haven't seen before," Kings center Vlade Divac said. "They've been playing pretty good basketball the last month or so." "I think the Lakers played a great game tonight," Sacramento forward Chris Webber added. "They played one of the best games they played all year. They are going to have to play that way to get out of the first round." In the regular-season finale of the NBA's best rivalry, both teams came in with five-game winning streaks and were separated by just one point at halftime. Led by Bryant and O'Neal, the Lakers thoroughly outplayed the Kings in the second half. After a somewhat quiet first half, Bryant scored 22 points after halftime. He had 12 in the third quarter, when the Lakers took the lead for good, despite O'Neal going scoreless. O'Neal, who scored 19 points in the first half, returned with a vengeance in the final period. He had three ferocious dunks and an alley-oop layup before leaving to a standing ovation in the final minute. Derek Fisher collected 17 points and eight assists for the three-time defending champion Lakers (48-31), who are steamrolling to the postseason. They have won 13 of their last 16 games to catch Minnesota for fifth place in the Western Conference. "It's another step in the right direction," Bryant said. "We're just trying to build our team to playoff intensity and we're still a work in progress. We're playing well. But we can play much better." "Nobody is going to give us these three (remaining) games," O'Neal said. "It is going to be three tough games." Webber and Mike Bibby scored 24 points apiece for the Kings (57-23), who are virtually locked into the second seed in the upcoming playoffs. They would need a total collapse by both San Antonio and Dallas to claim the top seed. Sacramento missed its first 11 3-pointers and finished 1-of-13 from the arc. Peja Stojakovic, who has won the last two Shootouts at All-Star Weekend, was 0-of-5 from long range. "Everybody is so caught up in the past history, but it is all about how we play and they play," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "If we play them, we have to play harder than we did today, but I don't think there is any doubt that we can't beat anyone we play." "I'm not going to make too much out of this ballgame," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "I said before the game that Sacramento does not have as much to play for as we do, and sometimes that plays out." There is always some chippy play between the clubs and this game was no exception. Late in the first quarter, the 7-2 O'Neal gave a body block to the 6-2 Bibby, who fired back some trash talk. Both players received technicals. In the second quarter, Divac bearhugged Lakers forward Devean George and threw him to the floor. He did not receive a flagrant foul. Two free throws by Bryant gave the Lakers the lead for good at 63-61 and started an 11-0 burst. His alley-oop dunk capped it at 72-61 with 5:53 remaining in the third quarter. Two 3-pointers by Fisher extended the advantage to 82-69 with 3:08 left. "Kobe got it going and once he did, it was really tough on us," Adelman said. "He hit some tough shots," Webber added. "On this date, he made all his shots. In the series he'll have to do that for seven games." Bryant had a turnaround jumper and driving dunk to open a 97-81 lead with 9:57 to play. He added two jumpers before O'Neal scored LA's next 11 points. Robert Horry played through a sore lower back to contribute 11 points and eight rebounds for the Lakers, who shot 48 percent (45-of-94), including 9-of-18 from the arc. Fisher made 5-of-7 3-pointers. Stojakovic scored 20 points and Bobby Jackson added 13 for the Kings, who shot 44 percent (32-of-72) and stayed in it by making 39-of-42 free throws. O'Neal had four dunks among his 14 points in the first quarter, which ended with the Kings holding a 27-25 edge. Sacramento led by as many as six points in the second period, but two free throws and a layup by Bryant gave LA a 54-53 halftime edge.
