Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers began February as they ended January - playing with playoff intensity. Bryant scored 42 points - his eighth game with at least 40 this season - as the Lakers won for the ninth time in 12 games, 99-87, over the Utah Jazz. "I feel great," said Bryant. "After two days off, I said that this is the closest I have felt to 100 percent as I am ever going to feel." "Kobe can really unify this team," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "He can bring this team up to another level. He can certainly do that." Shaquille O'Neal added 21 points and 13 rebounds as Los Angeles snapped Utah's three-game winning streak and beat the Jazz for the seventh time in eight home games. "It's pretty hard to stop a team with two players like Shaq - he is a big force under the basket - and Kobe from the perimeter," Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko said. "If you go to help on Kobe on the perimeter he passes it to Shaw. If you help on Shaq he kicks it out and that's tough." The Lakers took the lead for good, 60-59, on a six-foot runner by Rick Fox with 3:46 left in the third quarter. Bryant scored Los Angeles' final 10 points in the period, including a 38-footer from near the right sideline at the buzzer that gave the Lakers a 73-64 advantage entering the final 12 minutes. Bryant, who had scored 78 points over his prior two games, also recorded Los Angeles' first seven points in the fourth quarter, including a 3-pointer with 9:07 left that made it 80-71. Utah got within 82-77 after a layup by Karl Malone with 7:32 remaining before Los Angeles went on an 8-0 run over the next 3 1/2 minutes to put the game out of reach. "It has been a big three games (at Phoenix and Sacramento and vs. Utah) for us," said Bryant, whose team moved within three games of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. "This is a stretch that we looked at on our schedule, and said this is a critical point of the season for us, so I have just been coming ready to play." Bryant finished 12-of-25 from the field and 16-of-18 from the line. It was the most free throws Bryant had made all season. "(Bryant) shot 18 free throws, and it's pretty hard to stop him when he is at the free-throw line," said Jazz assistant coach Phil Johnson, who is 2-1 while Jerry Sloan serves a seven-game suspension for shoving a referee in a victory at Sacramento on Tuesday. "But he is a great player and we also put him at the free-throw line too much. That was really the difference in the game." Malone had 26 points and nine rebounds for the Jazz, who shot just under 40 percent (30-of-76) while allowing the Lakers to connect on 51 percent (36-of-70). "It didn't look like we were doing anything as a team," Malone said. "They were just up by 10 and continued to play. We had opportunities in that third quarter but they played through it, and you can't make excuses like that." Both teams committed 13 turnovers, but the Lakers outscored the Jazz off of the giveaways, 20-9. Utah played without forward Matt Harpring, who did not dress after suffering bruised ribs in a victory over Golden State on Friday. Los Angeles allowed a season-low 14 points in the first quarter and took a nine-point edge into the second period. The Lakers extended their lead to 45-35 at the half.
