The Lakers held off the Nuggets with Andrew Bynum’s 22 points and 10 rebounds. Kobe Bryant for once wasn’t the Lakers top scorer with 20 points. The Nuggets Al Harrington was the game’s top scorer with 24 points from the bench.
Bryant on his performance: “I didn’t shoot the ball particularly well but my teammates did. We’re doing a great job of recognizing traps and double teams and hitting each other
Lakers Coach Mike Brown on Bynum’s missed dunk : “Drew has a clean dunk and he gets fouled and it ends up being Denver’s ball in a two-point game. That’s tough to swallow when it’s in somebody else’s building. I’m a little disappointed the way we executed down the stretch and disappointed in how the game was called down the stretch. In a tight ballgame you hope that you got something better from both parties, from our guys and from the officials.”
