Bynum does it all in Lakers' Game 2 win over Jazz


By Bryan Chu, for NBA.com
Posted Wednesday May 5, 2010 3:32AM

LOS ANGELES (NBA.com exclusive) -- With a quick head and shoulder shake, Deron Williams found himself open for what was a wide-open teardrop. But lying in wait was 7-foot center Andrew Bynum, who rejected the shot.

The play epitomized the type of game Bynum had.

He was active. He was spry. He was confident.

Though he played through a tear in the meniscus of his right knee, Bynum had arguably his best postseason game, leading the Lakers to a 111-103 win in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals Tuesday at Staples Center.

"I was pretty comfortable," Bynum said. "especially in the first half, I was very aggressive."

After laboring through the first contest, Bynum cobbled 17 points, 14 rebounds (a playoff-career high) and four blocks in 29 minutes.

"This is the best I've felt coming into the playoffs," said Bynum, who missed the entire 2008 playoffs and limited in the 2009 postseason.

Now holding a 2-0 series advantage, the Lakers have history on their side, sporting a 40-1 record when winning the first two games in a best-of-seven series.

This is the third consecutive postseason Los Angeles, which has won eight straight versus the Jazz at Staples Center, has taken a commanding 2-0 series lead against Utah.

To get back into the series, the Jazz need to take care of home court. In recent memory, Utah has been successful in Game 3's against the Lakers. In 2009, Utah won 88-86, and in 2008, 104-99.

"It's a must win for us," Williams said. "We're a different team at home. A better team. We'll be ready."

The Jazz had their chances down the stretch as the Lakers once again let them get back into the game.

Utah trailed 87-77 heading into the fourth quarter, but it trimmed Los Angeles' deficit to 98-94 with 4:41 left.

"We would've lost this game if we were in Utah and we had that kind of lead," said Bynum, whose team had 20 turnovers, which led to 28 Jazz points. "We have to be much more careful with the basketball."

But in crunch time it was Kobe Bryant who pulled through.

With Williams in his face, Bryant pulled up and sank a long jumper just as the buzzer sounded. For good measure, Bryant threw down a reverse dunk on the next possession to give the Lakers a 107-96 lead.

Bryant finished with a game-high 30 points on 10-for-22 shooting. He was 10-for-11 from the free throw line. This was his third straight 30-plus scoring performance.

"That shot he made, doesn't surprise anybody because he's just that kind of player," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "You play against him, you don't like to, but you have to certainly admire everything [he's done]."

In the win, Pau Gasol had 22 points and 15 rebounds while Lamar Odom chipped in with 11 and 15, his first double-double of the postseason. Ron Artest also added 16 points and three steals.

"I'm getting better and better as the playoffs kind of go on," Odom said.

The key to the Lakers victory was outrebounding the Jazz 58-40 and the Jazz missing 34 shots in the paint.

"It was tough," Williams said of their size. "Their length does bother us."

After averaging 25.8 points on 49.4 percent shooting and 11.3 assists in the first series against the Nuggets, Williams has yet to find the stroke against the Lakers.

In Tuesday's loss, he recorded a postseason-low 15 points and missed 12 of 16 shots. He did tally nine assists, however.

Paul Millsap was the one bright spot for the Jazz. Millsap had a team-high 26 points on 10-for-17 from the field to go along with 11 rebounds and three steals. In the second quarter, Millsap muscled in 14 of the team's first 17 points. He single-handedly brought the team to within 45-39 with 5:22 to go. Los Angeles, however, used an 11-3 run at the end of the quarter to go up 58-46 at halftime.

Carlos Boozer and C.J. Miles each chipped in with 20. Wesley Matthews had 14 points and four 3-pointers.

The first half was particularly disheartening for the Jazz. They whittled the deficit down to single digits, but wound up down by 12 at halftime.

"We lost our confidence a little bit," Williams said. "We started fighting ourselves. When you look up and you're down 12 in the first half it is frustrating especially a team like this because it's hard to come back."

The Lakers' frontline was a huge reason the Lakers dictated the tempo early in the game.

Bynum bullied Boozer.

The Lakers center, who had 11 points and 13 rebounds in the first half, either backed down and shot over the 6-foot-9 Boozer or he dropped stepped his way to a dunk. Bynum recorded a double-double (11 points, 10 rebounds) at the seven-minute mark of the second quarter after recording eight points and 10 rebounds in all of Game 1.

"He was a huge factor," Sloan.

Added Williams: "He's out there playing on one leg and he's doing a great job of it."

While the Lakers' second unit let the Jazz back into the contest in Game 1, Jackson made an adjustment. Instead of giving Bryant his usually four minutes of rest to start the quarter, he started Bryant. Shrewd call. Bryant registered an assist on four of the Lakers' first five possessions of the period, stretching the Lakers' lead from four to 12 points, 39-27.

Despite the loss, Boozer looked at the bright side.

"I felt like we can play better, which is encouraging," he said. "We've had chances to win both games here in LA...This game, we were close. We were right there."
