Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Clippers became the latest team to find out that when the Los Angeles Lakers share the ball, they are almost impossible to beat. Kobe Bryant shook off a left foot injury to score 23 points and five teammates also reached double figures as the Lakers used a strong final 13 minutes to post a 103-89 triumph over the Clippers. Bryant, who is battling plantar fasciatis, made 9-of-16 shots and the rest of the starters and reserve Brian Cook all scored at least 10 points. The balanced attack enabled the Lakers to win for the 26th straight time in which six players reach double figures - a run that dates to April 10, 1998. "We have to have great balance," Bryant said. "So when teams want to double-team me we have everyone involved and that makes it very difficult for them to guard us." Chucky Atkins (17 points), Chris Mihm (15), Caron Butler (14), Cook (12) and Lamar Odom (11) all contributed offensively. Bryant handed out 11 assists as the Lakers posted their fourth straight triumph over the Clippers. "I know I can shoot," Cook said. "I try to space the floor out a little bit. I know a lot of big guys don't want to come out and guard me so if I set a good pick our guard is going to get open. And if he can shoot like Chucky can he's going to get good points out of that." "We couldn't really switch our big men on Kobe, so it gave them the opportunity to hit the shots," Clippers guard Corey Maggette said. "And Chucky Atkins made some big shots for them." Maggette scored 24 points and Bobby Simmons added 23 for the Clippers, who had a two-game winning streak snapped. Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy felt his team was a little flat coming off Tuesday's win over Toronto. "We weren't as sharp tonight defensively," Dunleavy said. "We let Mihm (get) a lot of times way too deep and we had some miscues. There's no excuse for it." The game was deadlocked, 71-71, with 61 seconds left in the third quarter. But Mihm had two free throws and Bryant a basket to close the quarter. The Lakers built on the four-point advantage by scoring 15 of the first 20 points of the final period. Atkins had seven of the points in the burst, which was capped by a Bryant dunk with 6:50 left. The Clippers never got closer than 10 the rest of the way. "We got a great lift from our bench," Lakers coach Rudy Tomjanovich said. "Both the Brians (Grant & Cook) did a great job. Chucky was fantastic down the stretch. Chucky executed the pick-and-roll perfectly." "We knew the Clippers were going to double-team Kobe and that a lot of us were going to have open opportunities to shoot the ball and fortunately for me tonight and in the fourth quarter they were going in," Atkins said. "Any time you make a couple of shots in a row guys tend to look for you a bit more."
