Artest, Lakers turn it on in third to hammer Pacers


By Bryan Chu, for NBA.com
Posted Wednesday March 3, 2010 2:41AM

LOS ANGELES (NBA.com exclusive) -- After road games following the All-Star break, Ron Artest found himself awake until 3 a.m.

Artest was up jogging in the hotel gym, trying to shed a few pounds. Couple his late-night routine with his weight-loss regimen of not eating past 9 p.m., Artest has re-sculpted himself.

The results have shown in not only his play, but also the Lakers, who despite a slow first half cruised past the Pacers 122-99 Tuesday at Staples Center.

"I sensed that everyone was making so many trades, and we didn't make any trades [this season]," said Artest, who is now 255 pounds down from 268. "So, I wanted to make sure I was a whole new person after the trade. Kind of like a new trade. [Getting] Ron Artest twice, hell of a deal."

There's no coincidence that the Lakers (46-15) have upped their play recently with quality wins over the Celtics and Nuggets. The common thread -- Artest's ability to shut down the opposing team's best player.

Artest held Denver's Carmelo Anthony to 7-for-19 shooting and eight turnovers. He closed out Boston's Paul Pierce to 11 points. Against Indiana, Artest held Danny Granger, who came in averaging 23 points, to nine on 2-for-9 shooting.

"I want to make it really difficult for anyone to score at all," said Artest, who had 11 points and five steals, all in the third quarter. "I feel like I'm getting in a rhythm defensively. I'm feeling very comfortable.

Added Kobe Bryant, who finished with a game-high 24 points: "He puts guys in a straight jacket."

The Lakers are now 14-0 against the Pacers (20-40) including the postseason at the Staples Center and have swept the season series 2-0.

Los Angeles now heads on a tough three-game road trip in four nights where it faces Miami, Charlotte and Orlando.

"This is going to be an intense month on the road," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said.

If the Lakers play the way they did in the third against the Pacers, they will be tough to beat.

Indiana trailed 60-54 at halftime and got to within 62-61 with 9:14 to go in the third.

That's when the Lakers' offense and defense took over.

L.A. busted the game wide open with a 15-4 run capped by an alley-oop from Artest to Andrew Bynum, who threw down a two-handed slam to give the Lakers a 77-65 lead at the 5:23 mark.

Indiana called a timeout and Josh McRoberts scored on a layup, but the Lakers didn't let up, finishing off the Pacers with a 19-4 surge to end the third with a 98-71 advantage.

In the third, L.A. went 14-for-21 from the field and outscored Indiana 38-17.

Led by Artest, the Lakers held the Pacers to 7-for-20 shooting and seven turnovers.

"They kind of used our defense to their advantage," said Pacers' Earl Watson, who had three points and 10 assists. "They saw [us] fronting. What they were doing was rotating their corner guy in order to kind of help inside of the front and they were skipping for threes."

Pau Gasol had 14 points and 16 rebounds for the Lakers, while Jordan Farmar contributed 19 off the bench and Bynum added 16.

Troy Murphy finished with a team-high 17 points and 13 rebounds for Indiana. McRoberts chipped in with a career-high 15 points.

Bryant has yet to find his rhythm since returning from a left ankle sprain four games ago.

After going 3-for-17 against the Nuggets Sunday, he started Tuesday 0-for-5 and finished 5-for-14. Bryant did, however, sink a 20-footer to beat the halftime buzzer, and manage to get to the charity stripe, making 14-for-15.

"I have not seen this before," said Jackson of Bryant's recent struggles. "I think the combination of his finger and now coming back after being out and finding a release a point is just one of those things shooters do go through. But, I haven't seen him go through this before."

MJ's NEW GIG: With Michael Jordan recently becoming the principal owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, his former coach gave his thoughts.

"I think it's a great opportunity for him and it's also an opportunity for Charlotte to embrace basketball," Jackson said. "Michael brings a familiarity and perhaps can bring some people into the seats.

"I don't think there's any discussion of knowing talent. He sees talent and knows talent pretty well, he understands that concept"
