Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Shaquille O'Neal wasted no time getting rid of Greg Ostertag and dispatched the rest of the Utah Jazz shortly thereafter. In his best game of the season, O'Neal sent Ostertag to an early shower and collected 32 points and 11 rebounds as the Los Angeles Lakers cooled off the Jazz with a 110-101 victory. "I didn't ask him how he felt but he looked as good tonight as he has the past week," superstar teammate Kobe Bryant said. "It was a very good game for him. I think he's coming along very well." Bryant added 25 points and 14 assists for the Lakers, who never trailed and led by as many as 20 points. They appeared to carry the momentum from Friday's stunning comeback win against Dallas and avenged Wednesday's loss at Utah. O'Neal came in averaging 25 points and 10 rebounds in nine games as he continues to play his way back into shape following toe surgery. The 7-2, 350-pound superstar has been inconsistent since his return. In the first two minutes, O'Neal scored over the 7-2 Ostertag and appeared to get away with a foul on the defensive end. Ostertag argued and was hit with two technical fouls, prompting his ejection. Ostertag moved toward the referee and had to be restrained by teammates Matt Harpring and John Stockton. Upon exiting, he kicked over a pile of towels and yanked down the canvas above the runway. O'Neal took charge from there. He totaled 16 points and five rebounds in the first quarter, setting a tone with his inside play that led to the Lakers shooting 20 free throws in the period. His dunk off a feed from Bryant gave Los Angeles a 33-17 lead with 1:17 to go. By that time, Jazz coach Jerry Sloan also had been ejected. With 4:12 left and Utah trailing 21-9, he picked up two technicals and departed. Ostertag did not talk to reporters after the game, but Sloan had a bit to say. "I thought Greg got hammered on the shot and there was no call on it," Sloan said. "Obviously, he was upset. I sat there and got a little more upset when I thought about it. "That is what is unfair about basketball sometimes and I've fought it as long as I've been in this league. I saw it like I see it now. A lot of times the team is at a disadvantage because of me because I fight harder than I should. I feel like there is a responsibility. I get upset. I was very upset tonight." O'Neal made 13-of-19 shots and 6-of-10 free throws, adding three assists, three steals and three blocks. However, he also left without talking to reporters, although he left an impression on Jazz center Jarron Collins. "(You try to) keep Shaq away from the basket as much as possible," Collins said. "Try to keep him out of the lane. It was the same strategy as Greg had, just try to keep your body on him - and Greg has more weight than me. It's difficult." "They let him sit in the lane for a half-hour," Sloan said. "He's got an advantage to start with. I would rather them foul out than let a guy have a layup; foul him and let him earn it." Derek Fisher scored 13 points and Rick Fox and Brian Shaw added 11 each for the Lakers, who shot 51 percent (41-of-81). Andrei Kirilenko scored a career-high 30 points and Harpring added 24 for the Jazz, who had won nine of their last 10 games. They pulled within three points late in the first half but could not overcome poor games by Karl Malone and John Stockton. "They hung around and made the game competitive," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "Even with Karl Malone and John Stockton not really having a game, they were able to muster up a force against us." Stockton had 13 points and 10 assists. Malone managed 11 points on just 3-of-16 shooting. Kirilenko scored seven points and Scott Padgett six in a 19-6 run that opened the second quarter and cut the deficit to 44-40 with 5:35 remaining. A 3-pointer by Stockton made it 55-52 in the final minute of the half, but Bryant answered with a three-point play. Utah got no closer. Bryant had a three-point play and a runner that helped push a 10-point lead to 88-72 late in the third quarter. "At times, Kobe was terrific," Jackson said. A three-point play by O'Neal gave the Lakers their largest lead at 100-80 with 6:38 to play.
