April 24, 2010 |  7:29 pm

Odom_300 A couple of baskets by Andrew Bynum -- a short jumper after a rebound and a dunk -- cut the lead to 12.

Lamar Odom missed a couple of free throws with 8:22 left, leaving the Lakers 0 for 4 from the line at that point. When Serge Ibaka hit two just after that, the Thunder was 11 for 11.

Russell Westbrook scored on a breakaway to give the Thunder a 16-point lead, 40-24, with 7:48 to go in the half before Bynum came to life.
