Only managed to see the second half. I wouldn't blame it on Odom, the sequence definitely changed momentum, but from what I saw the whole team just didn't execute well. Defense was slow and without intensity and we didn't get anything done on the other end either. Farmar loves that 3 point shot too much and Kobe embarrased himself on national TV.
Sure we are severely shorthanded, but there is no excuse for losing a very winnable game like this. Kobe needs to step up in these circumstances, if he wants that MVP he's gonna have to do a whole lot better.
