The Lakers got back to what they do best in Game 2: Feed the paint.
After largely neglecting their advantage in the paint in Game 1, the Lakers made a better effort in Game 2.
Andrew Bynum had a fantastic game, scoring 17 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.
The Lakers outscored the Hornets in the paint by 18, after being outscored by the same margin in Game 1.
Andrew Bynum, Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom combined for 33 field goal attempts in Game 2. In Game 1, the threesome combined for 22.
Conversely, Kobe Bryant only took 10 shots and finished with 11 points in the Game 2 victory as the team made an honest effort to feed the bigs.
If the Lakers repeat this recipe in Game 3, they will be very tough to beat.
