GAME RECAP

Shaquille O'Neal fought off an upset stomach to register 33 points and 10 rebounds in 33 minutes, leading the Los Angeles Lakers to their eighth straight home win over the Golden State Warriors, 105-99.

Due to his illness, O'Neal did not enter the game until there was 1:15 left in the first quarter. He scored 16 points in the second quarter, including a pair of layups in a key 11-2 run late in the period that helped the Lakers to a 58-51 halftime lead. He added eight more in the third period when Los Angeles increased its lead to 85-74.

"I'm tired from New York and I'm tired from getting in at four in the morning," said O'Neal, who was in New York over the weekend to participate in the All-Star Game. "Tomorrow I'm going to sleep all day and go swimming. I got up (today) and ate at a certain restauraunt. Breakfast burritos -- they hurt me today."

Golden State got as close as 91-86 with 6:34 to play, but O'Neal answered with a dunk on the break and a free throw. After Donyell Marshall came back with a pair of foul shots, O'Neal hit a layup and led a fast break which resulted in a reverse dunk by Kobe Bryant for a 98-88 lead with 3:08 remaining.

"Fortunately, our bench came through for us. It isn't often you get a substitute center to come in and score 33 points," Lakers coach Del Harris said. "That's the way we like to work it here. We like to get a lot of help coming in from the bench."

Nick Van Exel had 19 points and 14 assists as the Lakers rebounded from a 117-105 loss in Portland on Tuesday. Rick Fox scored 15 points and Bryant added 11 for Los Angeles, which avenged a 93-92 loss in Golden State on December 10th.

Joe Smith had 25 points and Tony Delk contributed a season-high 22 for the Warriors, who have lost six straight games and 20 of 21. Golden State has lost eight in a row at the Great Western Forum, last winning there on April 12th, 1994.

"Nicky (Van Exel) and Shaq were so good," Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "We just didn't defend Nicky, he scored, he got assists and he killed us with his penetration."

Los Angeles owned a slim 47-45 lead and took control with 3:25 left in the second quarter when Jon Barry drained a three-pointer to spark the 11-2 run. Barry, making his first start of the season in place of flu-ridden guard Eddie Jones, finished with nine points, seven assists and six rebounds.

Van Exel's fast-break layup capped the spurt and built the lead to 58-47, but Golden State scored the final four points of the second quarter to trim the deficit to seven at halftime.

The Lakers continued to add to the lead in the third, with O'Neal's dunk making it 78-63 with 4:38 left. Bryant drained a 21-footer and Fox sank a free throw to give Los Angeles its largest lead, 83-65, with 3:05 remaining in the period.

But the Warriors did not quit, reeling off a 17-4 burst to cut the deficit to five. Delk hit a heave from just inside halfcourt as the buzzer sounded to end the third, pulling Golden State within 85-74. His 14-foot jumper capped the run and reduced the Lakers' lead to 87-82 with 8:51 remaining.

It was back-and-forth from there until O'Neal led the brief 7-2 spurt that built the Lakers' lead to 10.

David Vaughn hit a three-pointer with 27 seconds to play to bring the Warriors within 102-97, but Bryant hit a free throw and Barry sank a pair down the stretch to help secure the win.

"In the fourth quarter we put ourselves in a position to win, but we just missed a couple of huge layups and they (the Lakers) had a couple of offensive rebounds and stick backs," Carlesimo said.

Los Angeles shot 51 percent (40-of-78) from the field and had 31 fast-break points, compared to the Warriors' 10. But the Lakers made just 21-of-35 from the line, including a 9-of-17 effort from O'Neal.

Golden State was a perfect 12-for-12 from the line, but shot just 41 percent from the floor (41-of-101). Marshall hit five free throws and finished with 17 points.

"We can't afford to make mistakes and mostly we made them at the wrong time tonight," Marshall said. "We knew that Shaq was coming back. They're going to play hard regardless, especially on their home turf."

Vaughn contributed 10 points and 12 rebounds off the bench for the Warriors, who have lost 10 of 11 on the road. They are 3-23 overall away from home and 0-22 when allowing the opponent to score 100 points or more.
