Odom also contributed 19 points and Pau Gasol was also dominant down low with 21 points on 10-for-13 shooting. But Gentry thought that the Lakers' guards were given too easy of a time getting to the rim. "Gasol had a great game and had some good post-up moves, but for the most part it was them breaking down our perimeter defense and driving in the paint and creating situations that way," Gentry said. "I thought the middle drives by Kobe and by [Derek Fisher] and by Shannon Brown and even [Jordan] Farmar, I thought they got into the teeth of our defense much, much too often and too easy and that created situations where now we're kind of in rotation and that's where a lot of point in the paint came."
