Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Kobe Bryant did not want to waste his energy against the Denver Nuggets, and his quick start made sure of that. Bryant scored 20 of his 32 points in the first quarter as the Los Angeles Lakers extended their home winning streak to 15 games with a 126-104 rout of the Nuggets. Los Angeles is in sixth place in the Western Conference standings, one game behind Minnesota and Portland. The Lakers must win Wednesday's regular-season finale at Golden State and hope that Trail Blazers lose if Los Angeles is to move up. Portland's victory over Phoenix on Tuesday ensured that the Lakers will open the playoffs on the road. "We like it this year because everyone is down on us because we have to play every series on the road," Bryant said. "If teams are expecting us to do that (lose on the road), they are going to be in for a rude awakening." With Los Angeles facing the worst team in the Western Conference, Bryant did most of the work early as Shaquille O'Neal did not register a shot attempt in the first 10 1/2 minutes. Bryant's 3-pointer made it 24-11 with just under five minutes to go in the first quarter and he added one of his trademark explosive dunks on the Lakers' next possession. Bryant made 6-of-9 shots in the first quarter as Los Angeles shot 60 percent (12-of-20). The lopsided nature of the game allowed Bryant to play only 26 minutes while O'Neal scored 19 points in 24 minutes. "As we close down the season, we try to rest our legs a a bit," Bryant said. "It's a lot of fun. It's good to see some of the other guys get in the game and have a good time." Neither superstar played in the fourth quarter, the only period in which Los Angeles was outscored. The Lakers swept the season series from the Nuggets for the first time since the 1997-98 season. "It is nice to see the young players come out and play hard and establish that lead and extend it a little bit," Los Angeles coach Phil Jackson said. "It allowed us to rest some of the players we will need tomorrow night to play against Golden State." Los Angeles built a 42-24 cushion after one quarter and its reserves keyed a 10-2 spurt to close the half for a 69-41 advantage. Rookie Jannero Pargo and Devean George each nailed 3-pointers in the run. Pargo had 11 of his season-high 18 points in the points and made 7-of-10 shots from the floor. He endured some good-natured ribbing from his teammates after missing a meaningless shot in the game's closing seconds that only served to lower his shooting percentage. "I feel pretty good about my game," Pargo said. "I think Phil made it obvious that I can be used in the playoffs and hopefully that will happen." Juwan Howard scored 19 points to lead Denver, which lost its ninth straight road game and finished with a 4-37 mark on the road. Marcus Camby collected 17 points and 14 rebounds. "They displayed their talent," Denver coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "They displayed why they are the champions. They came at us and took our heart right out of us right from the get go." A 3-pointer by Bryant provided Los Angeles' largest lead at 96-63 with just under three minutes remaining in the third quarter. Recognizing the fact that he would not play in the fourth quarter, Bryant attacked the basket and drew a foul with three seconds left and converted his foul shots to cap his night. It was one of many highlights for Bryant, who had perhaps his best move early in the third quarter when he drove the baseline and scooped in a reverse layup for a 71-43 advantage. He also used a nifty fake to get free and find O'Neal for a dunk. "At this point - what the record is - the statistical numbers really go out the window," Bryant said. "From experience, you're going to have to win on the road." But Bryant gave Los Angeles a scary moment when he tried to mimic Tracy McGrady's move of dunking off a self-pass off the backboard. Bryant underhanded the ball off the glass, but the Nuggets converged on it and he fell to the floor gripping his knee, but he was OK. Shammond Williams finished with 15 points and 10 assists and rookie Nikoloz Tskitishvili added 11 points for Denver.
