Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Lakers started the game without Shaquille O'Neal and played most of the second half without the rest of their starters. Kobe Bryant scored 11 of his 22 points in a dominant first quarter and played little thereafter as the Lakers cruised to their 23rd consecutive regular-season home win, 120-99 over the Washington Wizards. O'Neal missed his second game in a row due to a strained right calf but hardly was missed as Los Angeles rolled to its fourth straight win and seventh in eight games. "We want him back," Lakers forward Karl Malone said. "We want him back in the worst way. We are just holding it down for a little while, looking forward t getting him back. We still have to go out there and play the game." The Lakers made 11-of-18 shots in the first period as they jumped out to a 31-21 lead, and the Wizards got no closer than 10 points the rest of the way. "We were intimidated," Washington coach Eddie Jordan said. "They tasted blood and they went after the kill." Los Angeles shot 68 percent (23-of-34) from the floor and outscored Washington, 18-0, on the break en route to a 61-36 halftime cushion. "We played extremely well," Bryant said. "We are getting easy opportunities at the basket moving and cutting by guys." Bryant and Gary Payton left the game for good late in the third quarter as none of the Lakers starters played more than 28 minutes. "We came out and established from the get-go that we were going to put this team away and that is what we did," Payton said. The Lakers winning streak at home is one shy of their longest since moving to Los Angeles in 1960. They are one of three unbeaten home teams in the league. Devean George scored 18 points and reserves Derek Fisher and Kareem Rush added 14 apiece as Los Angeles had eight players in double figures for the first time since February 19, 1998. Karl Malone had 13 points and Slava Medvedenko made all five of his shots en route to 11 points for the Lakers, who made 61 percent (43-of-70) of their shots, including 7-of-15 3-pointers, and 27-of-32 free throws. Rookie Jarvis Hayes scored 22 points and Juan Dixon had 20 for the Washington, which shot just 42 percent (39-of-93) and committed 22 turnovers leading to 28 points for Los Angeles. "They got up on us, pressured us, they bumped us,the didn't let us get into out offense easily and it kind of threw us off from the beginning," Wizards forward Etan Thomas said. "It threw us off and we have to learn not to get rattled like that." Bryant scored nine points, including six in a row, during a 16-4 run that gave the Lakers a 20-11 lead less than eight minutes into the game. Medvedenko had five points late in the second as Los Angeles reeled off 11 consecutive points to take its largest lead of the first half, 57-32, with 1:59 remaining. The Lakers made 12-of-16 shots in the quarter and scored 13 points off nine turnovers by the Wizards, who were just 6-of-17 from the floor.
