Odom’s smart idea

HOUSTON — Lamar Odom made good point Monday about the Lakers’ need to take the Portland Trail Blazers a bit more seriously when they meet again April 10. Said Odom: “It’s a good team and we have to approach them like that. Obviously, we haven’t. They haven’t been close games (the Lakers have lost seven in a row in Portland). We have to respect our opponent and play them like they’re Boston or Cleveland. They play us like we’re a tough team, or one of the best teams in the league. So why not play against every other team like that? It would be smart for us to do.”
