Half: Bucks 50, Lakers 46

Back at home after going 5-1 on their trip, the Lakers looked as sluggish as the traffic on the Harbor Freeway heading home on a rainy afternoon. Their motors were running, but they weren’t making much progress. Lamar Odom and Kobe Bryant scored 10 points apiece in the first half for the Lakers. Ersan Ilyasova scored 13 for Milwaukee, and Andrew Bogut scored 11. Milwaukee outrebounded the Lakers, 22-16.
