Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Chucky Atkins and the Los Angeles Lakers had too much down the stretch for the depleted New Orleans Hornets. Atkins scored all 17 of his points in the second half as the Lakers pulled away for an 89-76 victory over the Hornets. "You look at the last two games and I didn't shoot the ball particularly well, but I wasn't as aggressive," said Atkins, who connected on just 3-of-18 shots in the previous two games. "I was just settling for outside shots. Tonight, I was trying to get to the basket a little more. "For me to be effective, for me to help this team out, I'm going to have to do more driving to the basket." Kobe Bryant scored 20 points while Lamar Odom added 14 and 14 rebounds to notch his eighth double-double this season as the Lakers finished 3-1 on their homestand. "They came out shooting the ball extremely well but we were just able to put them away when we needed to," Bryant said. "We just picked up more intensity as we went along." Bryant, who has been battling plantar fasciaitis in his left foot for the last three weeks, gave credit to Atkins down the stretch, however. "Chucky played great," Bryant said. "I know last game he felt like he should have made more shots. I could tell he was determined to come out tonight and have a better showing. He played an incredible game on both ends of the floor. We need that type of effort from him." Already without All-Star guard Baron Davis, who has been out since November 17 with an inflamed disk in his lower back, the Hornets lost All-Star center Jamaal Magloire to a broken finger Friday in a loss at Phoenix. They hung tough in this one, taking a 42-41 lead into halftime on the strength of Darrell Armstrong's 14 points. But Atkins, who did not hoist a shot in the first half, scored 12 points in the third quarter. He assisted on Brian Cook's 3-pointer that gave the Lakers the lead for good, 65-63, and hit a jumper 30 seconds later to provide Los Angeles a four-point edge heading into the fourth. "In the first half I wasn't able to get into a rhythm and I was in foul trouble," Atkins said. "Second half, I was looking strictly for my shot, just to be aggressive. I was looking to come off pick-and-rolls, looking to make something happen. Fortunately for me tonight, in the second half I was able to get it going." Atkins scored five more during a key 8-2 run that left the Lakers up, 84-72, with 3:49 left. He sandwiched a 3-pointer and a pair of free throws around Bryant's breakaway dunk during the surge. Armstrong finished with 21 points and Junior Harrington scored a season-high 14 off the bench for New Orleans. Aside from Armstrong, the Hornets starters shot 11-of-43 (26 percent) from the floor. "We aren't playing good enough to win games," Armstrong lamented. "We're just breaking down defensively and offensively near the end of the fourth quarter. That's what's really killing us. "We've been like this all year long, and it's tough when you play your butt off for 3 1/2 quarters, and the last six or seven minutes of the game we can't finish it. It's nothing physical, it's a mental thing. We need to finish quarters, we need to finish the game." For now, New Orleans has to play with the hand its dealt. "When we get our guys back, we get them back," said Hornets forward P.J. Brown, who scored 12 points and swiped 11 boards. "It hasn't been the type of year we expected it to be but we're working hard still, we're staying focused and trying to get better day to day."
