Odom's near triple-double powers Lakers to fourth win in row


By Bryan Chu, for NBA.com
Posted Wednesday January 6, 2010 2:40AM

LOS ANGELES (NBA.com exclusive) -- Sleep deprived and dehydrated coming into the game, Lamar Odom admitted he wasn't feeling well.

Yet, Odom came through in a big way, nearly recording a triple-double despite fighting off an intestinal flu.

In what was a low-scoring affair which featured poor shooting on both ends, the Lakers did just enough, gutting out a 88-79 victory Tuesday at Staples Center.

"I didn't feel too well," said Odom, who grinded out 17 points and season-highs of 19 rebounds and nine assists. "I haven't slept in two days."

That didn't stop him from carrying the defending champs, who have now won four straight.

"That was a monster game by him," Lakers center Andrew Bynum said. "It was unbelievable."

The Lakers (28-6) needed every bit of Odom's outstanding play with Pau Gasol, who strained his left hamstring on Sunday versus Dallas, missing his 12th game of the season. Gasol is not expected to play against the Clippers Wednesday.

Los Angeles, which now leads the season series 2-1 against Houston, also leaned heavily on Bynum down the stretch against a smaller Rockets team.

In his first 20-plus point game since Dec. 1, Bynum shook off a slow first half and scored 11 of his game-high 24 points in the fourth quarter and snagged eight rebounds.

"I was aggressive," Bynum said.

Heading into the fourth quarter, the Lakers nursed a 59-55 edge.

Bynum helped the Lakers, who never trailed in the game, build the lead back to double-digits, 73-63, with 5:17 left. The Rockets answered.

After missing his previous five shots, Shane Battier sank a pair of 3-pointers, part of a 10-3 run to get the game to within 76-73 with 3:10 to go.

That would be the closest Houston (20-15) would get, however.

Kobe Bryant, who had 22 points, had a jumper bounce in and Bynum flicked in a hook shot to put the game out of reach.

"We had our chance," Rockets coach Rick Adelman said. "But, we didn't finish plays and they did. Bynum was a handful all night for us."

"They did just enough to keep us away," Aaron Brooks said.

Houston, which heads to Phoenix on a back-to-back, shot 40.3 percent for the game and was outrebounded 50-36.

Carl Landry finished with a team-high 19 points. Brooks, who dropped a career-high 33 points in his last meeting against the Lakers, was held in check with 18 points. He also had five turnovers. Luis Scola chipped in with 15 points.

Trevor Ariza struggled for the third straight game against his former team. Ariza, who was averaging 12 points on 21.2 percent shooting in the previous two meetings this season, finished with 12 points on 5-for-15 shooting. He did have a career-high eight assists.

"I don't know, I can't tell you," said Ariza of why he continues to play poorly against the Lakers. "I'm not pressing. I don't force shots. I just haven't played well. That's all there is to it."

From the start, the Rockets were all out of sorts. At halftime, they scored 33 points, a season-low, and shot just 35.9 percent from the field including a 1-for-14 showing from deep.

"Sluggish," said Battier of his team's play early. "We weren't capable of keeping anything going."

Play was stagnant for both teams in the second quarter. Both teams combined to make six field goals in the first seven minutes. A Scola hook shot trimmed the Lakers' lead to 28-24 with 4:44 to go in the second quarter. The Lakers answered with a 9-1 run after Bryant spun away from Battier and then threw up a soft left-handed 10-foot shot to give the Lakers a 37-25 edge.

"We managed to keep control of the game and we didn't really have to kick it into a sixth gear or anything," Bryant said.

Lakers forward Ron Artest struggled in his first game back since missing the last five contests with a concussion, an injury he suffered when he fell down a flight of stairs outside his home Christmas Day. Artest finished with seven points on 3-for-11 shooting, seven rebounds and four turnovers.

"It feels good," said Artest of being back. "We won tonight and that's the most important thing. Really, I do not care about myself as long as we win."
