Halftime: Jazz 54, Lakers 50

SALT LAKE CITY — The Lakers big men didn’t do enough to keep the Utah Jazz from feeding off the energy of their home crowd and charging to a double-digit lead early in the second quarter of Game 3 tonight. Pau Gasol had four points on 1-for-4 shooting, Andrew Bynum was scoreless and did not take a shot and Lamar Odom had two points. Gasol had seven rebounds, Bynum had three and Odom had four. The Lakers will need more from them in the second half and less from Kobe Bryant, who had 20 points in the first half. Andrei Kirilenko played for the first time since hurting his calf almost two months ago and had more of an emotional impact for the Jazz than anything else. He had six points.
