Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Yes, they were playing the worst team in the NBA. But for the first time this season, the Los Angeles Lakers appear to be building some momentum. Kobe Bryant recorded his eighth career triple-double and Shaquille O'Neal scored 26 points as the Lakers routed the Cleveland Cavaliers, 115-99, for their first three-game winning streak of the season. In November, Los Angeles suffered an 89-70 loss at Cleveland without O'Neal. "We owed them one," Bryant said. "We came out tonight and really put it on them. We were really aggressive on the defensive side of the ball and were able to blow them out." While still four games under .500, the Lakers (16-20) have won five of six and are starting to play like the team that has captured three straight NBA championships. "Our shooting has returned to us again," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "I think it's better rhythm, better selection of shots, better motion with the ball, more passing that's creating ball movement." Los Angeles was coming off a 119-98 rout of Seattle on Tuesday, a game in which Bryant set an NBA-record with 12 3-pointers. In this one, Bryant was 0-for-2 from 3-point range, but he collected 21 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. It was his league-high fifth triple-double this season. "I hope I started a little spark there that the rest of us can feed off," Bryant said. O'Neal, who missed the first 12 games of the season while recovering from toe surgery, gave the Lakers a scare when he limped to the locker room late in the first half after getting kicked below the left knee. But he appeared to be unaffected when he returned for the second half. With the contest out of reach, Bryant and O'Neal spent the entire fourth quarter on the bench. "I feel pretty good," O'Neal said. "I'm getting back to my regular self playing. We're improving each game. We still have a long way to go but we are working well together." The Lakers nearly reached the century mark in the third quarter, taking a 97-74 lead into the final period. All five starters scored in double figures for Los Angeles, which led by as many as 28 points. Cleveland coach John Lucas admitted the Lakers were a different team than the one that lost to his club two months ago. "I saw a world of difference, a ton of difference," Lucas said. "I thought we pressured the ball but they just ran right through our pressure." Ricky Davis scored 27 points for the Cavaliers, who have dropped 16 of their last 17 road games and dropped to 2-17 away from home this season. Zydrunas Ilgauskas added 20 for Cleveland. "It's disappointing, even if we didn't beat them the first time," Davis said. "They took us out of the game early. They are getting their rhythm back and by the All-Star Game, they will be back in power." The Cavaliers stayed close ealy and only trailed 27-16 after the first period. But the Lakers took control in the second period, outscoring the Cavs 38-23 to open a 65-49 lead at the intermission. O'Neal scored 20 points in the first half. "We've been sweating it all season," Lakers guard Brian Shaw said. "They beat us by (19) the first time we played them. We don't have any sympathy for anybody. It's a game we needed to win. We got our first three-game winning streak of the season and we just want to build on it." Rick Fox and Derek Fisher scored 13 points apiece and Samaki Walker added 12 for the Lakers. Rookie Dajuan Wagner chipped in with 12 off the bench for the Cavaliers, who were outscored in the paint, 60-38, and outrebounded, 54-38.
