He takes the blame for loss, but admits that a poor shooting night ‘can’t happen.’
L.A. Times: Lamar Odom thinks he knows how to improve upon his Game 3 performance.
“Dunk the basketball,” he said before practice today. “Attack the rim a little harder. Finish at the free-throw line.”
Odom had seven points on two-for-11 shooting in the Lakers’ 103-84 loss Sunday to the Spurs. He made three of eight free throws.
It was one of his worst outings of the season, and it was magnified because frontcourt mate Pau Gasol had 15 points and made only seven of 18 shots.
Odom took the blame for the loss after the game. He was still unhappy with his play this morning.
“I got to the point where I couldn’t make a shot and then I got to the free-throw line and wouldn’t make a free throw,” Odom said. “That can’t happen.”
