Knicks Outmuscled by Lakers, 109-87 by Derrel “Jazz” Johnson

Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum had 18 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 blocks in 25 minutes, his size causing problems for the New York Knicks, namely Amar’e Stoudemire, but was ejected with 11:26 left in the fourth quarter. Advantage Knicks? Not at all. After the Knicks made three of four free throws to cut the lead to 81-73, the Lakers would go on a 28-14 run to close the game and finish off the Knicks, 109-87.
The Lakers outrebounded the Knicks 61-42, and were lead by Kobe Bryant, with 27 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists. Pau Gasol had a monster game with 20 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 blocks, while Lamar Odom added 13 points, 18 rebounds, and 4 assists off the bench. Shannon Brown scored 16 points off the bench.
After a 1-10 start, Amar’e Stoudemire led the Knicks with 23 points, 10 rebounds, 6 blocks and 4 assists, while Wilson Chandler added 19 points, 4 rebounds and 3 blocks. Raymond Felton finished with 12 points, 6 rebounds, and 7 assists, and Landry Fields, a native of the Los Angeles area, chipped in with 12 points and 8 rebounds.
The Knicks have lost seven straight to the Lakers and have not defeated the Lakers since February 13, 2007, when the Knicks defeated the Lakers 107-106 in Los Angeles.
