LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Shaquille O'Neal had a simple plan to keep the Lakers from being on the brink of elimination: Just get him the ball.
"I told the guys before the game, get me the ball and move out of the way,'' he said. "I've just got to have the ball in a position where I can do something. As soon as I'm open, I would like to have it.''
