Indeed, (Andrew) Bynum faulted the Lakers from going away from what was working. He had 14 points and seven rebounds as L.A. built a 10-point lead at halftime. With the Thunder increasingly fronting him, Bynum took just four shots in the second half, two in the fourth quarter when the Thunder erased a 13-point deficit over the final eight minutes.
“I didn’t touch the ball, so the game started speeding up, speeding up, speeding up, speeding up,” Bynum said. “They beat us in transition at the end.
The Lakers, Bynum said, never successfully countered the Thunder’s defense.
“You have to be smart,” Bynum said. “When a team fronts you, that means you’re hurting them. So they make an adjustment and you can’t keep running the same offense. You have to make them pay for that, whether you use a ball fake and come back to the same side or readjust. Reading that situation is a problem for us.”
