First things first, Jordan Farmar said he strained his left hamstring after missing a layup in the second quarter but planned to play in Wednesday’s game against the Clippers. Second, the Lakers spread the minutes around during their victory tonight over the Sacramento Kings. Pau Gasol scored 28 points in only 32 minutes, 15 seconds. Shannon Brown had 24 points in almost 42 minutes. Sasha Vujacic had 13 points, a season-high, in 26 minutes. Beno Udrih had 21 points for the Kings.
Here’s a quote from Lamar Odom that summed up his feelings on the game:
“I look at it, honestly, like we’re practicing against the other team. You want to run all the sets and do everything the right way. We want to play almost how we play in practice. It’s just a practice in front of 20,000 people.”
Also, I spoke to Andrew Bynum after the game and his run on the treadmill went well and he expects to participate in some on-court activities at Wednesday morning’s shootaround. He has been out since March 19 because of a strained left Achilles tendon.
