GAME RECAP

Shaquille O'Neal had 33 points and 13 rebounds in 26 minutes as the Los Angeles Lakers handed the slumping Washington Wizards their worst loss of the season in a 116-89 rout.

Kobe Bryant added all 15 of his points in the second quarter and Eddie Jones chipped in 13 for the Lakers, who have won nine straight home games, the most since they ran off 12 in a row at the Great Western Forum from December 1st, 1996-January 24th, 1997.

Los Angeles rebounded from Saturday's 106-91 loss at Utah to win for the sixth time in seven games and move within two games of Pacific Division-leading Seattle.

"Our guys came out and really bounced back strongly from last night's disappointing loss," Los Angeles coach Del Harris said. "They took care of business, as they say. Every game's important to us, of the team's that we're playing, some are fighting for playoff positioning and some are just wanting to beat the Lakers. In either case, we'll just have to be ready."

Chris Webber scored 22 points for the Wizards, who dropped the final three games on a five-game road trip to fall one game behind Orlando for the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. Washington surrendered 69 points across the middle two quarters and lost for the 23rd time in its last 25 visits at Los Angeles.

"We didn't play well today, we didn't play at all," Washington coach Bernie Bickerstaff said. "I'm no virgin to losing, having been around for 24 years. So there's no need to try to explain it. We're not a bad team, even though we may have played like it tonight. I'm glad this trip is over. We're looking to going home and re-grouping."

The Lakers' lead was 10-7 before Rick Fox buried consecutive three-pointers to ignite a 16-3 surge, capped at 26-10 on Elden Campbell's layup with 3:01 remaining in the first quarter. Los Angeles made 11 of its first 14 shots, while Washington hit just 4-of-18.

The Wizards managed to cut the margin to nine points entering the second quarter, but Los Angeles turned it into a rout early in the period. Leading 32-22, the Lakers scored 26 of the next 35 points behind O'Neal and Bryant, who combined for 17 in that span. O'Neal's dunk made it 58-31 with 3:21 left in the half.

Bryant took over from there, scoring six more points before the end of the quarter. His two free throws ended the half and gave Los Angeles a 65-37 bulge.

"I think the difference today was our confidence," Bryant said. "We have to be fired up. We realized it's important for us to come out and play like a team can play. If you let them hang around, they're a very dangerous team."

Los Angeles scored 32 more points in the third quarter as the lead ballooned to 97-60 with 1:02 left in the period after a layup by Jones.

Campbell recorded his lone blocked shot of the game in the fourth quarter, giving him 1,000 for his career. Hall-of-Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the only other player to block more shots as a Laker.

Fox finished with 11 points for the Lakers, who shot 58 percent (49-of-84) from the field. O'Neal was 13-of-18 from the floor.

Juwan Howard chipped in 15 points for Washington, which shot just 34 percent (35-of-102). Ben Wallace came off the bench to grab 10 rebounds.
