Halftime: Lakers 58, Jazz 46

It didn’t take long for Andrew Bynum to show he was as fit as possible under the circumstances. He scored 11 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in the first half of Game 2 tonight against the Utah Jazz. Bynum will play the rest of the playoffs with a slight meniscus tear in his right knee. It might or might not require surgery at season’s end. Bynum looked none the worse for wear, making five of his first seven shots in 16 minutes. Pau Gasol scored 13 points, Ron Artest had 12 and Kobe Bryant added eight points and seven assists. Utah backup Paul Millsap had a team-leading 16 points in the first half.
