Hornets-Lakers notebook


By Bryan Chu, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: On a night their two best scorers struggled and a win crucial to get back into the series with the next two on the road, the Lakers had a bounceback game from Lamar Odom and a spark from the return of Steve Blake as they went on to grind out an 87-78 victory in Game 2 against the Hornets and even the series 1-1Wednesday at Staples Center.

On Friday, the series swings to New Orleans, a spot Los Angeles has faired well, taking nine of the last 12. Of note, when splitting the first two games, the Lakers are 28-12 all-time.

In Game 2's victory, Andrew Bynum had the only double-double of the game, 17 points on 8-for-11 shooting and 11 rebounds. Odom chipped in with 16 points on 8-for-12 from the field to go along with seven rebounds. Ron Artest also added 15. Kobe Bryant had an off-night shooting (3-for-10) and logged 11 points, two shy of his season-low.

The Hornets couldn't get much contribution out of anyone not named Trevor Ariza and Chris Paul, who combined to shoot 50 percent from the field. The rest of the team shot 32.5 percent. Ariza recovered from his 2-for-13 performance in the series opener as he tallied a game-high 22 points on 8-for-15 shooting. His output was his most against his former team. After a stellar performance in Game 1, Paul added 20 points and nine assists.

The Lakers made several adjustments defensively from Game 1, namely against New Orleans' All-Star guard. Bryant guarded Paul from the start with Derek Fisher and Artest sprinkled in. They crowded Paul. They were physical with him. They got the ball out of his hands early in the shot clock. The result was that other Hornet players couldn't get a rhythm going. In the first game, five Hornets were in double digits and in Game 2 only three. The Hornets also didn't do themselves any favors in this contest by missing 12 free throws (20-for-32).

QUOTABLE: "That was the defense that we played late in the season when we had our little run, and that's basically what we have to do to win a game like this where it's really tough sliding in their scoring."
-- Lakers coach Phil Jackson on the difference Wednesday.

THE STAT: 13 -- The increase in turnovers the Hornets had in Game 1 (three) to Game 2 (16, which led to 22 Laker points). The Hornets had seven turnovers in the second quarter and that's when they found themselves down by as many as 12.

THE STAT II: 3 -- The number of buzzer-beating shots Paul made.

QUOTABLE II: "It was certainly their defense. I thought they were more physical tonight. They played passing lanes. They tried to take some of our options away."
-- Hornets coach Monty Williams on the Lakers' defense.

TURNING POINT: The Hornets trimmed the deficit to 51-49 at the 5:43 mark of the third period, but the Lakers rattled off 10 unanswered to go up 61-49. They never looked back.

HOT: After accepting the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award in front of the home crowd, Odom got off to a quick start, making three straight shots. Odom put his lackluster 10-point performance (six came in garbage time) in Game 1 and had a strong showing with 16 points in 27 minutes of play.

QUOTABLE III: "After you get an award like that, you get a little bit selfish and you can't help but want to play well. But that's been my mentality really especially throughout this year to play at a certain level."
-- Odom on getting the award and its impact on his game.

NOT: Pau Gasol has been an unfamiliar territory in back-to-back games. In the regular season, he shot 52 percent from the field, but is an uncharacteristic 21 percent (4-for-19) in the series after a 2-for-10 performance in Game 2. Gasol finished with a quiet eight points and five rebounds, although he did have three blocks. The Hornets have done a solid job being physical with Gasol. With defenders such as Emeka Okafor, Aaron Gray, and Carl Landry having a stronger base than Gasol, the 7-foot Spaniard has been having a hard time posting up.

QUOTABLE IV: "I don't expect to be shooting such a low percentage...(the referees) let (the Hornets) get away with a lot of shoving. We have to force the issue more, make it a little more noticeable. But they are doing a good job of digging and not letting in post-entry passes comfortably and so we have to work it, figure it out."
-- Pau Gasol on his struggles this series.

NOTABLE: Blake was a huge postseason "pickup" for the Lakers. After missing the last three games with the chicken pox, he helped lead the second unit, especially in the second quarter. The reserve tallied five assists in the period. "I felt really good," he told NBA.com. "A lot better than I thought I would be. I played some good defense and I did my part. As a group we played really well tonight. We defended well, we created some up-tempo game and got us some easy baskets." ... In his first postseason series, Okafor finds himself in one spot more often than not: the bench. He has been saddled with foul trouble all series. After fouling out in Game 1, Okafor picked up two fouls in the first 1:48 of play. He picked up his fourth foul midway through the third period. He ended up logging 23 minutes action (two minutes more than Game 1), the bulk of it was late in the fourth when the game was already decided. ... The Lakers outscored the Hornets 50-32 in the paint.
