The longtime protagonists shook hands, embraced briefly and exchanged a few words at center court before the game when the team captains and game officials met. They exchanged another hug before the opening tipoff as the fans at Staples Center voiced their approval. “I think it’s great,” Bryant told TNT at halftime. “We can put our past behind us and just move on.” Lamar Odom had 19 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists for the Lakers (21-17), who won for the sixth time in seven games. Devean George added 17 points and Chris Mihm had 10 points and six rebounds before fouling out. Dwyane Wade had 34 points and seven assists for Miami (23-16), which had its four-game winning streak snapped. O’Neal had 18 points and 10 rebounds, Udonis Haslem had 13 points and 12 rebounds before fouling out, and James Posey scored 11 points for the Heat. The game was the fourth between the teams since the Lakers traded O’Neal to Miami in July 2004. The Heat won the previous three, including a 97-92 triumph on Christmas Day in Miami. O’Neal and Bryant didn’t acknowledge each other before or during that game. The two spent eight tumultuous seasons with the Lakers, teaming with coach Phil Jackson to win three championships. Jackson left the team a month before O’Neal did and took last season off before being rehired in June. The game also marked the return of Pat Riley to Los Angeles for the first time since he returned as coach of the Heat last month. Riley coached the Lakers to four championships in the 1980s. Bryant made two free throws with 4:10 remaining to extend the Lakers’ lead to 90-81. But O’Neal scored the game’s next five points to draw the Heat within four points with 2:36 to play. Miami cut it to three points on a basket by Wade with 1:56 left, but that was as close as the Heat would get. Bryant and Wade exchanged baskets before George made two free throws with 49.6 seconds remaining. Odom’s baseline jumper with 19.2 seconds to play as the shot clock was running down and two free throws by George completed the scoring. O’Neal picked up his fourth foul with 7“ minutes left in the third period, going to the bench with the Lakers leading 69-53. Then, led by Wade and Haslem, the Heat went on a 22-10 run to finish the third quarter and start the fourth, cutting the Lakers’ lead to four at 79-75. Bryant returned to the game at that stage, and made two jumpers and two free throws after being fouled by O’Neal to put the Lakers ahead 85-77 with 6:48 to play. The Lakers led 57-42 at halftime and by as many as 19 points early in the third quarter.
