Halftime: Lakers 71, Kings 55

SACRAMENTO — The Lakers used a 16-2 run to build a big lead before halftime after trailing by as many as 12 points earlier in the half. Lamar Odom and Kobe Bryant scored 13 points apiece and Pau Gasol had 12. Spencer Hawes had 13 points for the Kings and Francisco Garica added 11. The Lakers seemed a little uncertain about whether to play at the breakneck pace the Kings established in the early minutes. But once the Lakers decided to go ahead and sprint with their rivals, they seemed to find the right gear.
