Jazz 99, Lakers 94

Pau Gasol scored 28 points and grabbed nine rebounds in 36 minutes, 31 seconds in the Lakers’ loss tonight to the Utah Jazz. Kobe Bryant scored 19 points on 7-for-8 shooting in the third quarter after going scoreless on 0-for-4 shooting in the first half. He did not play in the fourth quarter despite the pleas of some of the fans at Staples Center. Ron Artest had 17 points and Lamar Odom had eight points plus 15 rebounds. So, it wasn’t all bad for the Lakers, who fell to 2-3 in exhibition play. They must cut down on their turnovers. They had 20 tonight, one night after committing 22 in a victory over the Denver Nuggets.
