Lakers show off all their weapons in win over Hornets

LOS ANGELES (NBA.com exclusive) -- No Chris Paul. No Peja Stojakovic. No Byron Scott.

A lot has changed since the Hornets' last visit to Staples Center three weeks ago. The result was the same, however, as the Lakers used a huge second-quarter run to blow out the Hornets 110-99 on Tuesday.

Five Lakers scored in double figures with only two players taking more than 10 shots.

"We have so many weapons, so many guys who can be effective and put up big numbers any night," said Lakers forward Pau Gasol, who had 14 points on 3-for-6 shooting. "It's more fun when we share the ball. It makes us more dangerous because team's really don't know who to stop with so many options and players."

Lakers center Andrew Bynum finished with a game-high 21 points on 9-for-10 shooting and nine rebounds.

"Bynum, he just went off," Hornets center Hilton Armstrong said. "We couldn't stop him."

The Lakers (14-3), with a league-best seven straight wins, hold the best record in the league.

"I want it at the end of the season," Gasol said. "Not just right now. It's definitely a good sign that we're up there right now, but we can't rely on it too much.

This game was close in the first quarter with the Hornets (7-11) trailing by just four, 31-27.

After shooting 60 percent in the first quarter, New Orleans cooled off, missing 16 of its 22 shots in the second.

In the second quarter, Los Angeles went on a 21-4 run capped by a Derek Fisher 3-pointer to break open the game at 56-35 with 2:16 left before half.

"There was no continuation of what we did in the first quarter," said Hornets forward David West, who finished with eight points and three rebounds in 27 minutes. "These last couple of games we just don't have a clear definition of roles in terms of what guys are supposed to do. Too many guys trying to score the basketball and that just leaves us sporadic. We're too far all over the place.

"If [the Lakers] can share the ball, there's no reason why we can't share the ball."

The Lakers didn't need a big game from Kobe Bryant (18 points) and Ron Artest (16). Fisher, who has been productive of late, scored seven points and had season highs in assists (seven) and steals (five).

Leading 62-42 at half, the Lakers seemingly traded baskets with the Hornets in the third and continued to get to the free-throw line, going 28-for-33 to just 13-for-15 for the Hornets.

A positive for the Hornets was the steady play of rookie guard Darren Collison and Emeka Okafor's double-double (17 points and 12 rebounds).

Collison, who came in averaging 10.6 points, had 13 of his team-high 20 in the first half, including a 3-pointer right before the halftime buzzer.

"Just trying to be aggressive," Collison said. "But, [this loss] hurts because everyone is playing so hard. It's frustrating, but we have to continue to fight for it."

With no timetable to Paul's return from a left ankle sprain he suffered on Nov. 13 against Portland, Collison has stepped in skillfully -- averaging 15.2 points and 5.8 assists during Paul's absence.

"It's been crazy," said Collison before Tuesday's game. "Last time I played here [Staples Center], I didn't really think I was going to play a lot, but I got a chance to get in the game and got a chance to showcase my talents."

With the loss against the Lakers, Hornets coach Jeff Bower is now 4-5 since taking over for Scott, who was fired on Nov. 12 after a 3-6 start.

While the Hornets are still not right, Lakers coach Phil Jackson weighed in pregame on what has happened to the team that once was a championship contender two seasons ago.

"More than anything else, whatever happened on Tyson Chandler's trade and negation of the trade and returning back to his club probably kind of hurt that team more than anything else philosophically, psychologically as a team," Jackson said.

As for the Lakers, Jackson said he will get an idea of the what this team is made of soon.

"I think we'll get, really, a measure of this team, with Miami and Phoenix on Friday and Saturday," he said.

Notes: Stojakovic, who has missed the past two games because he is attending to family matters, will likely return on Friday against Minnesota.
