Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Sixty-one might not have been the magic number for the Los Angeles Lakers tonight, but 17 will do just fine.

The Lakers won their NBA season-high 17th straight contest and increased their lead for the league's best record with a 109-92 triumph over the Golden State Warriors.

The Lakers had won 16 straight games from December 11-January 12 and matched that streak entering tonight. The team and NBA record for consecutive victories is 33, set during the 1971-72 championship season.

"I was in the league when 18 was the largest number and we used to think that was an incredible number of games won," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "It's incredible to run up this number of wins because it says we haven't been defeated in almost six weeks."

The streak is tied for the sixth longest in NBA history, tying the run of the San Antonio Spurs during the 1995-96 season.

Thanks to a recent slide by the Portland Trail Blazers, Los Angeles (51-11) owns a 4 1/2-game lead for the NBA's best record. The teams were tied heading into their first-place showdown in Portland nine days ago.

Kobe Bryant scored 30 points and Shaquille O'Neal added 29 and 13 rebounds in his first game since scoring 61 against the Los Angeles Clippers. The duo combined for 41 in the first half as the Lakers opened a 59-49 lead before the largest crowd in Warriors history at 20,136.

"We're playing good defense and moving the ball well," said O'Neal, who recorded his 51st double-double of the season. "Everybody is having fun. We're just trying to get into the position of getting home-court advantage throughout. We're just trying to win."

"We have 17 wins in a row, but we have a lot of room for improvement," Bryant said. "We don't have time to sit back and think about what we're doing. At the end of the season, we'll pop the champagne."

The Warriors closed within six points but the Lakers scored 10 straight points to open a 71-55 lead with 7:12 left in the third quarter. Bryant had six points and his dunk punctuated the run.

O'Neal was 12-of-18 from the field and Bryant was 9-of-19 as Los Angeles shot 48 percent (40-of-83). Bryant drilled 11-of-13 free throws to help the Lakers convert 23-of-27.

Larry Hughes scored a career-high 41 points for the Warriors, who have dropped four straight and six of their last seven. It was the most points for a Golden State player since Latrell Sprewell had 45 against Minnesota on October 31, 1998.

"If I go out there and score a lot of points and we lose, it doesn't really matter," Hughes said. "(I) need to rebound more, get some more assists and just try to do those kind of things."

"I liked a lot of the things we did," Warriors coach Garry St. Jean said. "I know that we lost by 17 points, but I liked the way we competed. That is a great basketball team and the margin for error is very tight."

Hughes was 15-of-25 from the floor to help the Warriors shoot 43 percent (35-of-82). He was 11-of-14 from the line, but the rest of the team hit just 11-of-23.

"It the first time I played against him," said Bryant, who drew the defensive assignment against Hughes. "It took about three quarters for me to find out what he likes to do. He has a funny rhythm. He's slow and deceptive."

Golden State has lost 14 of its last 16 meetings with Los Angeles.
