Wednesday night during the Lakers’ 92-83 victory over the San Antonio Spurs at AT&T Center, Lamar Odun started for an injured Andrew Bynum. This win makes seven in row, can anyone say GO Lakers!!
“It’s not so much that Lamar is starting, it’s that Andrew is out,” Brown said. “That kind of changes the whole team’s attack as far as inside-out. When we come off the bench, we’ve got to be more efficient with execution, more efficient on defense.”
Kobe’s offense was flawless, and finished the game with 24 points and six assists.
“It was playoff type of atmosphere,” Bryant said. “We were down the first half and we had to battle back. It was a good win for us to start this road trip. Against San Antonio you have to execute.”
Odom had 19 points and 13 rebounds and Brown was three for five from the field, making both of his three-pointers. He finished with eight points.
“I think it gives us a little more opportunities,” Farmar said. “The rotation changes a lot. Kobe [Bryant] is in with us a lot also. He dominates the ball a lot, but he’s looking for us. He knows that we are willing and able to knock down shots. I’m just trying to stay aggressive and confident the whole time.”
