Halftime: Jazz 52, Lakers 48

Utah last won at Staples Center when William Howard Taft was President. No, not really, but the Jazz had lost five in a row at the Lakers’ home court. They took a modest lead in the first half in hopes of ending their streak. Mehmet Okur had 12 points and Deron Williams and C.J. Miles added 10 apiece. Pau Gasol had 15 points and Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum each scored 10 for the Lakers. The Lakers shot 52.6 percent but still trailed.
