Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Kobe Bryant scored 16 of his 28 points in the decisive third quarter as the Los Angeles Lakers continued their home dominance of the Golden State Warriors with a 101-85 victory.

The Lakers had won 14 of their last 15 home meetings with the Warriors but could not shake the last-place club, leading just 64-60 with 4 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter.

Bryant took charge, scoring all but two points in a 14-5 burst that closed the quarter and opened a 78-65 lead. He had three dunks, a jumper and four free throws as he overpowered Golden State with his athleticism.

The superstar guard made 10-of-12 shots and 8-of-9 free throws. He did all his damage in the first and third quarters, going scoreless in the second period and sitting in the fourth.

"I think they made a couple of mistakes out there," said Bryant, who is 21-of-26 from the floor in his last two games against Golden State. "I don't think they wanted to give me any openings or gaps but they did and I took advantage of them. We needed to turn it up a little bit. In the third quarter, we felt the door was opening for us. We had to bust through it."

Shaquille O'Neal scored 20 points and Devean George added 13 for the Lakers, who maintained the NBA's best record at 18-3. They have won two in a row since a two-game skid early in the week.

"We're supposed to beat this team," O'Neal said. "We really didn't get into it but we woke up in time and did what we're supposed to ... win by 20. We're not playing great and we still have the best record in the league."

Rookie Jason Richardson scored 16 points and Erick Dampier added 15 for the Warriors, who fell to 1-1 under interim coach Brian Winters. Dave Cowens was fired Saturday and replaced by Winters, who won his first game against Memphis.

"We're a young team and we have a tendency to get a little anxious when the pressure goes up, but that's where we have to grow," Winters said. "We have to learn how to deal with that. For the most part, I thought we did a pretty good job most of the night."

The Lakers increased their lead by scoring the first six points in the final period. O'Neal tallied four and George's two free throws put Los Angeles up, 84-65, with 6:53 remaining.

"I think we lost a little bit (in the second half) but I thought we played pretty good," Richardson said. "The Lakers just know how to win. They pull it together when they're down and know how to take over games. That's the why they are the defending world champions."

Dampier's jumper gave Golden State a 38-34 lead with 6:02 left in the second quarter, but Los Angeles gained control with a 10-2 run, capped by a jump shot by Robert Horry with 1:51 to go.

Rick Fox and Samaki Walker contributed eight points and six rebounds apiece as the Lakers shot 47.5 percent (38-of-80) from the field.

Antawn Jamison scored 12 points and Danny Fortson added 10 and 10 rebounds for Golden State, which made 43 percent (33-of-77) of its shots but only 18-of-31 free throws.

The Warriors, who have lost 13 of their last 17 games after a 5-3 start, yielded 19 points off as many turnovers.
