"That's fun," said Odom, who had 17 points off the bench. "That's basketball when you're seven years old out there having fun with the game and the ball just goes in."
Most of the Lakers' shots had much lower degrees of difficulty, and it showed.
Bryant went 7-for-11 while scoring a game-high 21 points, Pau Gasol hit 9-of-13 shots for 20 points and Andrew Bynum made 6-of-9 for 19 points.
Williams topped Utah with 17 points and eight assists, while C.J. Miles had 14 points in his first start of the season after replacing Gordon Hayward at the small forward spot.
But that lineup change — the third in as many games after Andrei Kirilenko was replaced by Hayward on Saturday — failed to do the trick on this night.
Nothing for Utah worked.
"(It's) the same thing. We have no chemistry," Williams lamented. "We have no continuity on either end of the floor. It's bad. I'm playing bad. Everybody's playing bad. It starts with me."
And it ends with a handful of losses in a row — something that Utah hasn't experienced since losing six straight in December 2007.
Something the 38-7 Spurs would love to help them match tonight.
