Half: Lakers 52, Knicks 47

The Lakers’ big men gave Amare Stoudemire fits during the first half tonight, scoring easily against him and pressuring him into only five points on 1-for-10 shooting. Andrew Bynum scored a team-leading 12 points and grabbed seven rebounds for the Lakers, and Pau Gasol had nine points and nine rebounds and Lamar Odom added eight points and seven rebounds. The Lakers outrebounded the Knicks, 34-20. They should have led by much more by halftime, but committed nine turnovers, including four in the opening minutes.
