Halftime: Jazz 43, Lakers 39

SALT LAKE CITY — Wow, has this series changed. The Lakers, who couldn’t miss a shot in the first half of each of the first two games, suddenly can’t throw a pea in the Great Salt Lake. Kobe Bryant missed 9 of 10 shots in the first half. Pau Gasol missed 5 of 8. The Lakers shot 30.4 percent in the first half. The Jazz weren’t much better, shooting 39.5 percent. The Lakers’ bricklaying led to some big rebounding numbers for Utah’s Carlos Boozer, who had 16. Paul Millsap added 10. Lamar Odom had 13 points and nine rebounds for the Lakers. Boozer led Utah with 13 points.
