Things don’t get much less attractive than the first half of the Lakers’ game against the Nuggets. That they trailed by only 52-46 by halftime was something of a surprise. It could have been a good deal worse. The Lakers shot a woeful 32.7 percent (17-for-52) in the first half. Five players had three fouls at the break, including starters Vladimir Radmanovic, Andrew Bynum and Kobe Bryant. Backups Lamar Odom and Sasha Vujacic also had three personals.
