Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant made sure the Los Angeles Lakers got one from the Phoenix Suns. O'Neal had a season-high 36 points and 16 rebounds and Bryant added 31 and 12 as the Lakers turned back several rallies and cruised to a 109-97 victory over the Suns. In the finale of the weekend back-to-back series, the Lakers turned the tables on the Suns, who won at home Saturday in similar fashion despite a combined 62 points from O'Neal and Bryant. The superstar duo was much more efficient on its home floor. The 7-2 O'Neal was virtually unstoppable, making 15-of-19 shots. Bryant made 13-of-29 shots and handed out seven assists. "He (O'Neal) is starting to get himself in really good shape and so we're feeling really comfortable with him out there on the court," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "Shaquille played extremely well," Bryant said. "We played a pretty good game." Unlike Saturday's game, O'Neal and Bryant also had some help. The Lakers shot just 2-of-21 from 3-point range in Phoenix but sank 5-of-17 in this one. Derek Fisher and Rick Fox connected from the arc down the stretch. "I liked how Rick came in and played the second half," Jackson said. "Fish came back the second half and had a good second half." "With them stepping up and being aggressive, it makes the defense pay," Bryant said. "They can't just throw two guys at myself or three guys on Shaquille. They're going to make them pay." Stephon Marbury scored 32 points for the Suns, who got no closer than seven points in the final period. "They made shots, but Shaq was just a monster tonight," Marbury said. "They all played like the Lakers tonight." "Those two guys (O'Neal and Bryant) are going to get whatever they want," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "They are that good. It's just when those other guys are chipping in as they did tonight, it just makes it that more dangerous." The Lakers never trailed after the first two minutes as Bryant came out firing and made his first four shots. He scored 13 points in the first quarter as LA grabbed a 29-24 lead. "Phil stressed to us it was important to get off to a good start," Bryant said. "After I hit my first shot, I felt things were flowing pretty well for me." O'Neal scored 12 points in the second quarter, including a short jumper that opened a 40-28 advantage early in the period. With forwards Shawn Marion and rookie Amare Stoudemire hampered by foul trouble, the Suns had to feel fortunate in trailing just 51-45 at halftime. Penny Hardaway's jumper made it 53-49 early in the third quarter, but Phoenix got no closer as Marion and Stoudemire picked up their fourth fouls. O'Neal had a dunk and layup and Fisher drilled a jumper to quickly rebuild the lead to 10 points. A 3-pointer by Joe Johnson cut the deficit to 84-77 with 9:06 remaining, but Bryant sank a short jumper and O'Neal put in a layup. Marbury's runner made it 90-82 with 4:58 to go, but Fisher and Fox sank 3-pointers around a dunk by O'Neal to make it 98-86 with 3:26 left. "Playing the same team two nights in a row, you don't ever want to lose two games back-to-back in that situation," Fisher said. Fox had 11 points and eight assists for the Lakers, who shot 52 percent (43-of-82) and held a 53-37 rebounding advantage. Los Angeles shot 30 free throws to 22 for Phoenix, which did not go to the line until midway through the second quarter. Marion scored 13 points, Johnson added 12 and Stoudemire 10 with 10 rebounds for the Suns, who shot 43 percent (38-of-88) and committed just nine turnovers.
