Game Story

INGLEWOOD, California (Ticker) -- Glen Rice scored half of his 24 points in the fourth quarter as the Los Angeles Lakers pulled away for a 116-98 victory over the lowly Vancouver Grizzlies.

The Lakers led by eight points entering the final period but, paced by Rice and Rick Fox, outscored Vancouver, 41-31, over the final 12 minutes. Rice made 4-of-7 shots in the quarter, including 3-of-4 attempts from 3-point range. Fox contributed 11 of his 17 points in the period.

Shaquille O'Neal scored 23 of his 26 points in the first three quarters to lead Los Angeles, which avenged a loss at Vancouver on February 23 and improved to 13-1 all-time against the Grizzlies. O'Neal, who averages 10.9 rebounds per game, finished with just one.

"I only got one rebound. I thought I had three. They will have to fire the statistician," a sarcastic O'Neal said.

Dennis Rodman filled the void on the glass, grabbing 17 boards. But the Lakers were outrebounded, 45-31.

"I was two steps slow today," added O'Neal. "It was one of those games where I was a few steps slow, but we pulled it out. Everybody else played well. Dennis took care of the rebounding and Glen shot the ball well."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 21 points and Tony Massenburg had 16 and 12 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who have lost five straight and 18 of their last 19 games since defeating the Lakers for the first time. Vancouver also has lost its last 11 road games.

"We didn't come out ready to play," Abdur-Rahim said. "We figured they had something to owe us but we just didn't play well. Down the stretch, they were just a little too much."

With a 65-61 lead with just over three minutes left in the third quarter, the Lakers started to distance themselves from one of the league's worst teams.

Rodman had a dunk and O'Neal sank a pair of free throws, fueling a 10-4 surge that Derek Fischer capped with a three-point play to push the lead to 75-65 with 14 seconds left in the quarter. Vancouver scored the final basket to pull within eight entering the final period.

Los Angeles still held a 92-83 advantage with 6 1/2 minutes remaining before putting away the game.

Fox converted a three-point play and Rice drilled a 3-pointer to trigger a 10-1 burst that increased the advantage to 102-84 with 4:22 remaining. Vancouver got no closer than 16 points the rest of the way.

"We didn't come out with as much force in the second half," Vancouver coach Brian Hill said. "We lost track of Glen Rice for a while and then Rick Fox came in and hurt us."

Rice finished 7-of-17 from the floor as the Lakers shot 47 percent (39-of-83). Los Angeles did force 22 turnovers that turned into 26 points.

O'Neal scored 16 of his points in the opening half, helping the Lakers to a 46-42 advantage. O'Neal finished 10-of-20 from the floor.

The 7-1 O'Neal scored seven more points in the third quarter, but coach Kurt Rambis seemed to become disenchanted with his star player. O'Neal sat most of the fourth quarter before finally re-entering the contest in the waning moments.

Kobe Bryant added 20 points for the Lakers, who matched their highest offensive output of the season.

The rookie duo of Felipe Lopez and Mike Bibby had strong games for Vancouver. Lopez finished 16 points while Bibby had 13 and handed out eight assists.

The Grizzlies shot 48 percent (39-of-82).
