Halftime: Thunder 55, Lakers 42

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Lakers got off to a reasonably good start tonight in Game 4 and then went to pieces. They got the ball inside, as promised, but didn’t do enough with it. They scored 24 points in the paint, but shot only 12-for-25. They also were only 3 of 10 at the free throw line. Oklahoma City shot 20 free throws, making 19. The Thunder shot 34 during their victory in Game 3, so they’re on pace for many more tonight. Andrew Bynum led the Lakers with 11 points, seven rebounds and three blocks in the first half. Kobe Bryant had eight points and four assists. Russell Westbrook led the Thunder with 16 points.
