Halftime: Lakers 60, Jazz 53

SALT LAKE CITY — Kobe Bryant made his first four shots and it was clear things would be different in the first half of Game 4 tonight. He finished the half with 24 points on 10-for-13 shooting, two nights after scoring only 18 points on 5-for-24 shooting in the Lakers’ loss to the Utah Jazz in Game 3. The Lakers shot 57.9 percent in the first half. Utah was led by Deron Williams with 17 points and seven assists and Carlos Boozer with 14 points and eight rebounds. Mehmet Okur returned to the Utah lineup after missing four games because of a strained right hamstring. He did not score in the half.
