Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- With superstar Kobe Bryant sidelined by an ankle sprain, Chucky Atkins has picked up the slack. Atkins totaled 26 points and 10 assists and Lamar Odom scored 25 points as the Los Angeles Lakers held on for a 105-101 victory over the Golden State Warriors. In the four games since Bryant injured his ankle against Cleveland, Atkins has averaged just over 22 points while shooting 49 percent (34-of-69) from the floor. "I think we are depending a lot more on each other," Atkins said. "Basketball is a team game and think Kobe is so good at times that we tend to just throw him the ball and leave him out there by himself. But now without him, we know we have to depend more upon ourselves, move the ball and play more team basketball." Jason Richardson's jumper just over three minutes into the fourth quarter reduced Golden State's deficit to 87-83. But Atkins scored the next four points and Jumaine Jones and Brian Cook followed with back-to-back 3-pointers just over two minutes later to give Los Angeles a 97-85 cushion with just over five minutes to play. Richardson, who scored 26 points, capped a 15-4 surge with a 3-pointer with 18 seconds remaining that made it 101-99. After Atkins was intentionally fouled and made 1-of-2 free throws, the Warriors had a chance to tie with 12 seconds left, but Richardson attempted a reverse layup that rimmed out. "We still have opportunities," Richardson said. "You never know. If the layup goes in, we're down one and they could have missed the free throw or maybe both free throws. It was a good decision and it is the way our philosophy goes in that situation." Former Laker Derek Fisher's layup gave the Warriors their biggest lead, 69-62, midway the third quarter. Los Angeles responded with a 16-3 run over the next four minutes. Odom scored seven consecutive points to start the surge, including a game-tying 3-pointer. Caron Butler followed with a jumper to give the Lakers the lead for good. Atkins drilled a 3-pointer with 92 seconds remaining to make it 78-72. "I have constantly been in an attack mode," Atkins said. "I am comfortable to be doing what I am doing. There have been opportunities to attack and we tend to call a lot of pick and rolls and get into transition and I am able to get to the basket or hit pull-up jumper and the ball has been falling for me. I don't have an explanation for it." Fisher, who was starting in place of an injured Speedy Claxton, had 23 points and seven assists and Troy Murphy added 16 and 10 rebounds for the Warriors, who have lost 10 of their last 11 games and are winless in five straight against the Lakers. "I think defensively we aren't making enough plays," Fisher said. "We are scoring enough to beat anybody, but defensively we aren't making enough plays. Not just at the end, but throughout the game. We are letting people score too easily and too consistently. So that's where are focus has to be." Odom got off to a fast start with 11 points in the first half and was looking for his teammates to pick up the scoring. "I just try to score but tonight we just weren't able to pull away," Odom said. "They are a professional team and we know we're not able to just put the game in cruise control. We're definitely not that good and we know it." Richardson credited Odom and the Lakers' outstanding perimeter shooting for the win. Atkins and Jones each had four 3-pointers for Los Angeles, which shot 43 percent (13-of-30) from the arc. "Lamar got hot and was finding his guys open," Richardson said. "I think that was the difference in the ballgame. They have big time 3-point shooters and they all stepped up." Richardson tallied 17 points in the first half for the Warriors, who trailed, 52-51, at halftime despite shooting 54 percent (22-of-41). "I think I died a little bit on them in the second half," Richardson said. "Not just scoring, but I think I didn't bring enough energy in the second half of the game. I need to find a better way to carry that energy for a full 48 minutes." Fisher came to the Warriors before the start of the season and is trying to work his way into a starting role. "I don't know when I'll become the No. 1 guy," Fisher said. "That's what I've been searching for almost my whole career. That was one of the biggest motivating factors in leaving the Lakers was being that guy, not necessarily statistically but being the quarterback and the leader that handles the ball and makes the decisions as an extension of the coach. I'm still searching for that in a lot of ways."
