Okur is expected to return for game 4.
OCRegister: Mehmet Okur is expected to return from his strained hamstring in Game 4 Saturday night, which Phil Jackson views as a break for the Lakers. “It’d be good for us,” Jackson said after his team’s practice. “I think that’s what we need.”
Jackson suggested his team is not fully engaged, and Utah being a full power with Okur’s 17 points per game will “challenge us and make us play the way we should play.”
