Although Lamar Odom has struggled so far in his NBA Finals debut, averaging just nine points and eight rebounds, the forward remains optimistic that he’ll finally breakthrough in Game 4.
Lamar–along with the rest of the Lakers–finally saw signs that he was coming out of his Finals funk toward the end of Game 3 after he made a series of aggressive drives to the hoops resulting in clutch baskets for L.A.
According to the forward, he needs to continue to be active around the hoop with his rebound and defense, even if his shot isn’t falling.
Coach Jackson said before last night’s game that he offered support to Odom–something that came as little surprise to to Lamar.
“He knows what to expect of me and I know what to expect of myself,” said Odom.
