The Clippers led by as many as 10 points in the first half tonight. Eric Gordon led the Clippers with 11 points, and Rasual Butler added nine. Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 12 points, and Andrew Bynum had eight. Lamar Odom added seven points and nine rebounds. The Lakers shot 15 for 44 in the first half (34.1 percent), which explained their small deficit. The Clippers shot 22 for 47 (46.8 percent). So far, there’s been nothing to get anyone excited about. It looks like a game the Lakers can take if they put their minds to it.
