Phil Jackson Previews Game 2 against Phoenix


For those liking their news in sentence form. Here were the nuggets:

--In an always entertaining exchange with The Times' T.J. Simers, Jackson acknowledged the Lakers want him to take a pay cut from his current $12 million salary.

--Jackson says he believes Alvin Gentry's contention that the Suns won't double on Kobe Bryant. As far as Bryant's knee is concerned, Jackson described it as "OK."

--Jackson acknowledged part of the approach toward Andrew Bynum's limited participation in practice involves the hope he's healthier for the NBA Finals.

--Jackson argues Amare Stoudemire's claim that Lamar Odom had a lucky game roots in the fact that "Lamar is overlooked." He also expects Phoenix to make adjustments guarding Odom.

--Mark Medina
