Gasol returns in grand fashion as Lakers pound Bulls


By Bryan Chu, for NBA.com

LOS ANGELES (NBA.com exclusive) -- It didn't take Pau Gasol very long to adjust to the speed of the game in his season debut Thursday.

He ran the floor smoothly, shaking off any questions of his lingering right hamstring injury. His jumpshot and left-handed hookshot were just as deft as last season. He even got knocked down to the floor twice, but bounced back up both times.

Good news for the Lakers the rest of the way as they went on to trounce the Bulls 108-93 behind Gasol's game-high 24 points and 13 rebounds, including seven on the offensive glass.

"I couldn't be happier," Gasol said. "I wasn't really expecting to be as effective as I was tonight. I just played and had fun."

The Lakers (9-3) had a balanced attack with six players scoring in double figures.

Despite a poor 7-for-21 performance from the field, Kobe Bryant recorded a stacked line: 21 points, nine rebounds and eight assists. Ron Artest also chipped in with 15 points and three steals.

Andrew Bynum finished with a season-low 11 points and said he tweeked his right ankle, but "hopefully things aren't too bad," he said.

With the loss, the Bulls (6-5) are off to a rough start with four games remaining on their five-game road trip.

About the only bright spots for Chicago was the early play of John Salmons, who scored all of his 18 points in the first half, Joakim Noah (12 points and 15 rebounds), and the late play of Derrick Rose.

Rose had his prints all over the second half, finding the open man and finally knocking down a few floaters and jump shots. But it wasn't enough. Rose finished with a team-high 20 points on 9-for-20 shooting and also had six assists.

Gasol's play in the opening minutes really set the tone for the game. In the first 6 1/2 minutes, Gasol scored 10 of the Lakers' first 13 points. He converted 4-for-5 from the field.

"He played great. It's good to have him back," Artest said. "He fit right in."

Trailing 53-42 at intermission, the Bulls couldn't keep up with the length of the Lakers, who opened up with a 10-2 run that pushed the game out of reach.

"Their length is definitely their biggest strength," Noah said. "To me, the most amazing thing about it is, you're out there, you're competing hard, and these guys are hardly breaking a sweat because they're so comfortable in running their offense."

The Bulls were punished inside and were outscored 60-40 in the paint. They were also outhustled 22-8 on second-chance points. The Lakers led by as many as 24 points.

Lakers guard Derek Fisher had a pair of 3s in the third quarter in what was his best game of the season, finishing with a season-high 12 points on 5-for-5 shooting.

After the game, Gasol, who saw 32 minutes of action, did mention he hasn't gotten his wind back yet.

"I was glad we had a national televised game because they're longer," he said. "After that I held up pretty well.

"[I feel] a little sore, the conditioning is not there yet."

Rose had a solid game against the Lakers after struggling for much of the season.

Eleven games into last season, the NBA's Rookie of the Year was averaging 19.4 points per game, shooting 48 percent. This season he is averaging 14 points per game on 43.9 percent form the field. He also had five 20-point games compared to two this season. The slow start is in part because of a strained tendon behind his right ankle. Against the Lakers, he had a few explosive drives to the basket, but just couldn't convert.

"He's frustrated because he's a competitive kid," Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro. "He's not physically 100 percent, not in the condition he was [last season] just because of the injury. You just have to take a step back, give him some time...I think he's improved in a few areas, especially defensively. It takes time. He'll get into and be productive."

NOTES: With his 21-point performance, Bryant passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for second place on the Lakers' all-time scoring list with 24,182 points. He trails only Jerry West (25,192).
